Friday bunnyblogging

Noe’s life is not all wine and roses cilantro and fresh-cut timothy hay. Two summers ago, she got a weird skin infection that stumped the vet for several weeks. It eventually cleared up, but we ended up going through three types of anti-fungals, having to do a skin biopsy (she still has this sad little scar on her lip), and generally stressing out and spending way too much money.

But the most traumatic part of treatment was… the baths.

The bath

Rabbits don’t generally like to be immersed in water, and the bath required her to sit for five minutes with this medicated shampoo on her fur, then be rinsed off. Needless to say, she hated this (and yes, that is a poo of terror in the photo above.)

More bath

Wet rabbits look just about as pathetic as wet cats.

Needless to say, this was not our most positive bonding moment, but it did clear up the infection. We never did get a positive ID on it. Luckily, it has never returned…
