Update on Speedy's trip to the vet!

We just got back from the vet,it seems Speedy has developed a little bit of an infection the good news is because the gunk has worked its way out it shouldn't cause to much problem long term the bad news Speedy has to have Baytril twice a day for a week to clear the infection up.Speedy is not happy about the Baytril as it smells and tastes disgusting,and other than that Speedy is just fine running around like a crazy cheeky bunny that he is.
So as soon as we hear that Maddy is well enough for a party we will announce Speedy's Pirate Party!

  8. What flavor of Baytril is he getting? My vet accidently gave Fatty liver flavored a while back. LIVER! For a BUNNY!!! I made them change it out...to a bunny approved flavor.
    My poor Speedy. I hope they took cultures of the gunk. It still looks pretty good, other than the yellow gunk. I kiss that nose!

  12. Is it liquid or tablet Baytril? Can you disguise it in some banana (assuming he loves banana)? Or raisin?
    Good to know the infection should clear up with the antibiotics. :)

    1. Its liquid and its fruit flavour of some kind but he still doesn't like and fights and has to have lots of treats afterwards,xx Rachel

  13. I'm glad to hear it is nothing too serious - bummer about the meds, though!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, Rachel, Thank goodness Speedy is okay. Really healing is such a process. I guess that little pirate of yours could not be convinced that ALL the other pirate bunnies love to swig Baytril? I love the pictures. You hang in there. Love, AJ

    1. well he has always been a bit of a fighter when it comes to taking meds so it requires lots of bribes afterwards,xx Rachel

  32. Oh poor Speedy. Hopefully the icky medicine will make everything right again and he can get back to the business of bunnying!

    I feel your pain though - one of my foster buns picked a fight with his brother yesterday and had a chunk of cartilage ripped out of his ear for the trouble. We are also on a course of Baytril to make sure no infection sets in and for some reason Boz thinks that the rules are that any hand that tries to put medicine in his mouth is fair game for a good chompin'!
