Hallo meine Lieben,
"heile heile Gänschen" is a German song that my mom and grandma always sang for me when I was sick. Today I have to sing this song to my beloved little bunny Tiffie.
He usually is a very active bunny, he loves to play around with his buddy Findus. This morning he just stayed in his little bed the whole time, he did not eat, not even the treats he loves so much. He was shaking a bit and what scared me the most was that he made grinding noises with his teeth. Which means that a bunny is in pain.
So I grabbed him and went to the vet with him. He hates going to the vet (he was very sick when I adopted him 4 years ago and we had to go to the vet every single day for weeks. Plus he needs to get his teeth cut every 6-8 weeks which also scares him a lot) but we had no choice. I was so worried about my little bunny.
The vet found out that he has a colic which is a pretty serious condition for a bunny. Tiffie got two injections from the mean doctor and he took it like a man. Very brave. He also had to eat some yummy brown paste which he obviously did not like very much.
When we got back home I made sure that he has a quiet spot where he can relax and get better. I gave him some fluids and sat next to him. Then I massages his little tummy to make him feel better. Then I was just there for him. I started searching the internet for more information about bunnies and colics. After reading lots of horror stories about it I just stopped and realized that Tiffie has proven that he is a fighter and that he will make it. A couple of hours later he had to eat that stupid paste again...
And he is starting to feel better. I am so happy to see this because he looked so sad and miserable this morning. He is eating some hay and he is hopping around a bit. I hope his condition will improve and that he will be back at his old self tomorrow.
Tiffie and I (and the other pets) would appreciate it if you would send some happy thoughts our way!
I hope you are all doing great!
