Tofu hasn’t been well over the last few days. He was great for a few months but over the last weekend he became messy in the undercarriage and looked very uncomfortable. In September he had his bladder flushed and a course of meds. A bottom shaved helped keep things in check too. Since then, things have looked pretty good until the end of last week.
Not only had we switched to the vet recommended pellets but we’ve cut portions severely over the last 5 months. In the last week or so he has eaten only a handful of pellets as we’re trying to encourage hay and fresh greens instead. He will not eat hay if a full pellet bowl awaits him.
His appetite has been pretty normal and he has been drinking water. He still enjoys around 10 hours a day roaming free in the backyard and snuggles with us in the evenings (and some mornings). On Sunday, he even jumped up onto the couch for a snuggle which is quite a feat for a sick, blind rabbit. Despite two bunny baths over the weekend he wasn’t coping so The Koala and I took him to the vet yesterday. He stayed at the vet last night but thankfully the vet seemed confident that they would find what ails him and they will run some tests today to confirm if it’s more bladder issues.
Here’s a photo of him last week, still happy and playing in the grass. Actually he was quite happy playing in the grass yesterday when I scooped him up before going to the vet.
