Wow. Daisy looks a lot more comfortable on that table than my bunneh Clover ever does!
Uh, oh ... who thought he or she could fool Daisy? In for a really bad drive home ... glad I'm not you hoomin! That is one amazing bun, though! Just awesome!
Just go with the flow, Daisy!Ditto for the poor Vet.
Of what use is Dr. Doopid Schtinkee Hoomin's expensive education if he cannot perform the simplest tasks, like ear scratches and nose rubs? Or getting a treat from the frig? This vet may deserve a thumping, a cat scratch and a vicious bite from a big mean dog, at the very LEAST. Daisy is MAGNIFICENT!!!! She should have little girls prancing around her throwing flower petals and craisins at her feetsies.
6Bs, you brought this up so I blame it on you, but whoever has been Driving Miss Daisy has some explaining to do. And, alas, lovely as this bunny is, it terrifies me to see them on high vet tables with nothing be tile to hit which ever way they jump.
look at the amazing size of Miss Daisy,she could give you good thumping
Daisy is a fine rabbit indeed, and clearly an accomplished Disapprover.I would not like to be in the shoes of Dr. Doopid Schtinkee-Hoomin right now. DDSH is in for a THUMPIN'!And I agree about no safety fence and a floor full of tiles. I assume the vets know what they're doing (as much as stoopid hoomins can), but it would make me nervous if I had to take my (hypothetical) bunny master/mistress there.Still gonna have to give Daisy a "virtual" snorgle, though! Whooozhh-a-pwetty-bunny-girl-then?-Wuhwuhwuhwuh-mehmehmeh-wuhwuhwuhwuh!!!Ahem.
Fleetie, not a bad snorgle, ole bean, and very dignified, what what...(Thomas Hardy has me in an Anglo state of mind...pardon my doopidity, but it's hard to switch from Texas Twang via Larry McMurtry to Anlgais per Thomas Hardy and back again!)
Watch out she will melt that table with her disapproval
Such disdain is hard to handle in any rabbit, but Miss Daisy is a serious armful of bun! I think I'll go hide and wait for Tuesday.
DDSH, DVM should provide at least a towel for Miss Daisy. Vet, errr...spa tables are notoriously slippery. Miss Daisy would like to point out that doggehs often get treats at the vet. DDSH, DVM should provide carrotinis and nutriberries for their lagomorph clients. They deserve nothing less. After all, everyone knows that bunnies are Exotic!
Blech, no kidding. For what vets charge for "exotic" rabbits, bunnies AND their parents should get spa treatment during visits. I think that veterinary medicine is as much full of crap as human medicine. Rabbits will never get off the "exotic" list even though they are, what, 3rd most popular pet in the U.S. Why? MONEY!! It all comes down to money. Vets can play dumb and not have to bother with us crazy rabbit people who know more about rabbits than they do (ego buster, there) and the vets that do bother with rabbits can charge us REDONCULOUS amounts of money because they know that every time a beloved bunny poops in the wrong direction at the wrong time, we will take them to the clinic because we LOVE THEM SO DANG MUCH!!!Also, I think vets mostly think of rabbits as "pocket pets" or livestock. Doopid Schtinkee Hoomin Vets!!!
Fleetie, alot of Vet offices have tile walls, too. Really scary, because bunnies can just suddenly jump anywhere, especially while you take them from their boxes or carriers. But what a beautiful snorgle. I wish all the bunnies in the world could get a snorgle like that. You could travel around the world scattering snorgles everywhere you went. A new legend would be born - Fleetie Bunny Snorgler, like our Johnny Apple Seed.
BB, there are some great vets out there, but it is as you suggest a pretty much mixed bag. Once a vet tech took my bunny box from me, set it on a vet table in a totally tiled room, opened the top of the box, then said to me to come over and take her out so she won't be scared. At this point my little bunny had smashed into a tile wall. It was my fault. I'll never forgive myself for allowing such a stupid scenario to unfold. We went from routine check to thousands of dollars and incalculable bunny suffering. It didn't matter much that I suffered with her every step of the way. As I say, I'll never forgive myself. Now I know that Buddha Bun, alias Daisy, doesn't look like she's in much danger there, but when your bunnies are off the floor bad things can happen really quickly.
I think most vets are great - with dogs and cats. But how sad is it that we need a place like The HouseRabbit Society to help us find rabbit savvy vets in our own state? I am even afraid to take my chihuahua baby girl to the vet! She is so teensy. I am TERRIFIED to take my Meany Girl Bunny to the vet, she is unpredictable and it would make me physically sick if anything happened to her. I don't know how I would handle it. SHe is so tiny and spoiled. That is part of the reason I have not had her spayed yet. Doopid reasoning, I know...
We are VERY lucky to have a top notch veterinary clinic available to us. The rabbit knowledge that a few of the vets AND the techs have is phenomenal. A friend of mine had a red hot bunny emergency in the middle of the night last night, and used their after hours service. The bunny is feeling better now. Having said that, I have been to vets who claim to know rabbits, and clearly do not. A good rabbit vet is worth her weight in gold.
@brandi b: Extracting the bunny from the carrier is half the battle. Invest in a carrier that opens from the top, they are great.
THe vet that the rabbit rescue here uses is supposed to be fantastic, and the owner of the rescue is very very momma bear protective of those bunnies, so you know if she is satisfied, this vet has to be great. My bunny vet is very good but he is SO expensive. It would cost me almost 400 dollars to get Mean Girl spayed, it cost about 300 to get Fatty neutered. But the vet the rescue uses only charges about 80ish dollars for sterilization. Goodness. Daisy is MAGNIFICENT! I know I said it before, but she is FANTASTIC!!! That is a professional lagomorph right there! She looks like she owns the place.
Holy cecatropes brandi b, that IS expensive! I think we should have a say in what the vets' grandchildren take in grad school, since we'll be paying for it with the high vet bills! If I can make a suggestion, you really should get your girl spayed. It would likely help with aggression and it would prevent uterine cancer, a leading cause of death in female bunnies.
I have been so fortunate to get to know our vet here in Plano, Texas, Dr. Bethany Whetstone. I got to know her when I only had dogs. But, when I got bunnies, I found out she knows an awful lot about my furballs! She even remembers their names and how much each weighs. She gets onto Jamal when his dewlap isn't sparkly white and clean for her...he sometimes has carrot juice on his dewlap. He gets embarrassed. She comes out to the waiting room and checks each bunny while he or she sits on my tummy, or we go into a room, depending on how many I have there at once. The whole room is always very interested in seeing rabbits. They love to watch them get examined and how personable each is. It's a great teaching opportunity.
@SixBunnies: Wonderful! Sounds like you've got a top notch vet. You are very lucky.
