Latte Update

Greetings Everybunny!

Latte went to the vet first thing Tuesday morning. The procedure went well. Momma vet cleaned out the wound, sawed it up and gave her a shot of antibiotic and demonstrated how to flush the wound.

Well, the hoomins tried that the next morning and couldn't do it right. The serum dried up and "sealed" the wholes where the fluid had to go. So, Latte went back to the vet on Thursday morning, and the vet showed us again how to do it. This time the hoomin took a video of it. That made things easier at home. The hoomins watched a couple of times, no bunny fainted, and their stomachs settled down a bit.

Now we have to keep flushing it till Thursday or Friday. We'll go in Saturday for a checkup. I think I'll go with Latte as well. Just to keep her company, you know. Maybe I'll get a checkup and a nail trim myself!

The swelling has gone down in her leg, and it's almost the size of the healthy one. One hoomins is worried though that the incision is healing very quickly and it's becoming harder and harder to push the fluid in one opening and have it come out in another. The V.E.T might get a call about that tomorrow.

We'll keep you posted,

PS: Here's the flushing our vet did on Thursday morning.

What a brave bunny. You all are incredible bunny parents. This flushing looks like it is as much an art as a science. I would say just turn it over to the vet. Trying to take care of it yourselves seems to me to be asking a lot. I didn't understand the size of the wound. Does Latte lick it? Do bunnies have healing stuff in their saliva? I have read somewhere, probably here, that bonded bunnies should go to the vet together. Anyway, we are officially worrying around the clock, so you all can relax some, okay? Seriously, hang in there. Love from us.
