“Cameron”

My Charlie had his first six cold laser treatments over these past two weeks, and now I’ll take him for more every week or every other. I’m starting with one week, then two and seeing how he is. I’d rather not take him every week if he does okay with every other. He is not happy about going, although they have been cleaning up his butt for me, which I’m happy about!

We cleaned our Cameron’s pen today. He was very confused as to what was happening. I’m sure he was not happy that we vacuumed up all of his loose fur and took away all the smells. I’m sure he’ll make it his again soon. He already started on bunstruction with the cardboard in front of the bookcase.

 

Charlie Goes Down But Stands Back Up

“Charlie”

I was away for a few days last week, and my parents were watching Charlie when he suddenly lost the use of his back legs. They were wonderful taking care of him, rushing him to the vet in the morning, propping him up and moving him to dry locations, feeding him, and even giving him water in syringes. He had been a little crooked the days before, and fell over a couple of times, but he was moving around okay when I left him. It could be arthritis or perhaps an injury from falling over. He started getting cold laser treatment at the vet, and within a couple of days was standing up, and hopping around with the legs very well again. By the time I came home, he was moving around like nothing had happened. I’m so grateful that my parents spent so much time caring for and feeding him. I know both they and he were happy to have me home again!

“Hershey, Butterscotch & Cameron”

Even though I’ve been spending a lot of time caring for my Charlie, I make sure to save some time for the other Kronenbuns. The boys downstairs are pretty good at entertaining themselves though. Cameron loves to lie at the fence near his big brothers. They would rather snuggle with each other than be petted, but Cameron is always up for petting. He’s a licker too, and it’s always nice when a rabbit reciprocates for all that petting!

“Piper & Charlie”

My Charlie finally seems stable again. His temperature is still dipping in the middle of the day, but the vet said as long as he’s moving around, acting like normal that it’s okay for him. He may just have a lower normal body temperature, and he’s lost some insulation as he’s gotten older. I also cut out the syringe feedings to see if he’d eat more pellets on his own. He is eating a little more, he’s just such a fussy eater. We didn’t do blood work since it wouldn’t change the treatment plan for now, so hopefully we get some better numbers when he goes back in October and his course of antibiotics is finished.

“Rusty”

Must be nice just take a nap on the couch all day. Guess I’ll never know what that’s like since my couch is occupied with a little furry body. “There isn’t any room for you up here, human! I need the whole couch to stretch out on.”

“Rusty”

Rusty has been relaxing on the couch this weekend. It’s been a little chaotic for the humans, but Rusty is chillin’ just fine. When I was in the couch last night, he didn’t even pay attention, and just ran back and forth over me, like I was part of the couch. That’s okay Rusty, my feelings aren’t hurt!

Let’s Play, Rusty!

“Rusty”

Rusty bunny is visiting us this weekend. He’s always such a sweet little guy, and my Cameron already likes him. They both keep going to the back corners of their pens, trying to get to each other. Cameron wants to play, Rusty I’m not so sure. Cameron just wants to play with all the bunnies!

Piper “Visiting” Charlie

My Charlie has been ill for the past week and a half, but does seem to making some progress, albeit at a slow pace. He finally started eating pellets yesterday, even just a few is welcome at this point. I think the infection is the cause of him not feeling well, since he started to improve after starting on that. He’s on Azithromycin for a month.

He has not been maintaining his temperature very well though. Most times, when I check him after couple hours off of heat, his temp is below 101 again. Yesterday I got a 101.1 after 2 hours, and then again later in the day, so I’m hopeful it will continue to improve. I had wondered if the Galliprant just started for his arthritis could be lowering his temperature, so I stopped it for a couple days. It may lower his temp initially, but it I think that wears off after a couple of hours. He just wound up more crooked, so I put him back on it. Sometimes I put his carrier on a heating pad on my bed and Piper would jump up to visit him. Well, I think she just wanted the food in the carrier.
