COW ISLAND....yay! shedding like a banshee....nay.
we have our first advertiser, Cow Island....welcome! what a lovely site he has. maybe if we're real nice to him he can conjure up some bunnies visiting the cows. maybe i'll send him a link to our cow videos. i am so relieved to see such talented and tasteful advertisers! now that i've checked out Project Wonderful, it seems all their ads are just as lovely as can be. thanks jade for the recommendation! we're anxious to see how it goes.
on the other hand bells is shedding like crazy. we know how that goes....poor bells, he hates it. with the shedding comes the threat of GI stasis, a nerve wracking time to be sure. whipping out the kit: papaya tablets, pumpkin puree, unlimited hay as always and unlimited bunny runaround as always....infant gas drops don't hurt either, and hopefully this goes without saying but whatever you have to do, once you see those spiky little tufts coming up (like in our header image), remove all that shedding fur. we had to resort to cisapride a couple of nights ago. drastic times call for drastic measures, just in case ya'll dont know about cisapride it's an intestine motility drug and if you end up getting your hands on some be sure your bunny is well hydrated first. subcutaneous fluids may be in order if it's gone on for a while. i believe if you administer cisapride without thorough hydration it could lead to kidney failure. D moll correct me if i'm wrong about that please. something failure is a danger, pretty sure it's kidneys. finally i got him jump started, that was after a very scary 14 hour battle with it...these bunnies, Lord have MERCY!
