Thats what I thought a couple days ago when the sneezes started. he's gone from just sneezes to congested sneezes, possible coughs, and a runny nose. poor fellow. It's easier to take him in and get checked out to be safe. Every sneeze now is like a human congested sneeze (I don't know how to describe the noise lol).
he was on the aspen bedding. It smelt dusty as it were. I looked it up, the bunny "cold" are actually respiratory infections. Hence the visit to the doc for meds to clear it up. I've been wondering why he hasn't been playing as much, but then again its been hot here so I more chalked it up to the heat.
awws cute! I was playing with Holland lops at a LPS before we got the little guy. I love the droopy ears.
Well the vet confirmed it. He has an upper respiratory infection. It's very early and its only in the sinuses. They gave me antibiotics but he's so tiny he only gets .5 mL every 12 hours lol. Even though he's tiny he put on 100 grams in a week! he's up to 510g now lol. I was proud of my little boy, growing up big and strong. I though he looked bigger. He got into a sneezing fit while the vet was holding him though. She definitely confirmed the congestion in the sinuses and the runny nose. He was so tired by the end of the examination he fell asleep on the table while they mixed up his meds. I don't blame him though, URI's suck...
well we don't like the medicines so much. It takes two people lol. Joey has to hold his body while I cover his head and life a cheek. even though its only .5mL I still split that up into two shots when dosing. (like i measure out the full amount but only give him a bit, wait until he's go that cleaned up and then give him the rest). We definitely don't like us to much after that, lol. He's shunning us in his cage.
Aw poor little guy. :(
Could be he was taken too young, bunnies shouldnt leave mom until 8 weeks. But what odds. Glad to hear of his weight gain! And the meds, it doesn't get any easier as they age, let me tell you that! lol
