Toronto Rabbit Rescue: Medical Care
Below is a photo of Francis. He is one of a group of bunnies that was abandoned at Meadowale and the 401. The others have so far been healthy, aside from being dehydrated and underweight.
Not only does Francis require medical care for the infected wound above his eye, he is also not eating/drinking/peeing/pooping the way a healthy bunny does. Rabbit people will understand how dire this can be for buns. Toronto Rabbit Resuce is brand new and we are already bursting at the seams with rabbits that people have bought and discarded like litter.
Any help you can offer Francis (and other bunnies in need of veterinary care) will be deeply appreciated. 100% of funds raised will go towards medical care. If you prefer to donate directly to the vet, please contact me and I will be happy to give you all the info you need.
And in two weeks, she'll be fully recovered from her spay and READY TO BE ADOPTED!
THANK YOU from TRR and Francis (& Mulberry - update to follow soon)!!
Mulberry and Francis have both been adopted into their Fur-ever homes ♥
Both Francis and Mulberry have now had their final Vet check and have been given a clean bill of health and have been moved from their initial Foster home to Toronto Rabbit Rescue headquarters. As soon as their Spay and Neuters can be done they will be available for adoption. Both Bunnies have blossomed since being rescued and will make wonderful additions to the forever families that are lucky enough to adopt them.
Little Mulberry, who turned out to be a Girl, had two Bot Fly Larvae (Cuterebra) feeding on her neck. One had matured and vacated leaving behind a large infected hole. A second nearly mature Larva was removed by the Vet. It takes 30 days for a Bot Fly Larva to mature so this poor Girl had been suffering for a month before she could be rescued and treated. Two vet appointments and half way through a course of three oral medications she is healing very well and has become a confident, friendly Bunny who greets visitors with enthusiasm ♥
This little one, Mulberry, is also just a youngster of 3 to 4 months age. He/she is at the Vet now. We are awaiting the assessment and treatment plan. There is possible trauma to the eye as well as the obvious wound on the throat which is infected and appears to have Botfly larva infestation.
Francis had a second wound under his chin. That means that a Predator had his head in its jaws. He's lucky to have escaped, and even luckier to have been caught by a kind person and taken in by Toronto Rabbit Rescue. Without Veterinary care he would have died a slow painful death from the infection in his wounds or would have fallen easy prey to a second predator.
