Rabbit's Vet Appointment

Good news for Rabbit. The x-rays came back good. There is no rotation in the bones. In fact, the bones are all level as they should be. But as the vet said, her situation is "interesting". Not exactly what I want to hear from a vet.

So it's a combination of needing a bit more consistent trimming and vitamin E deficiency. Unfortunately the vitamin E supplement we had her on (Dumor Gold) isn't working so we are going to have to go back to what we bought from the vet.

There's also mention of a shot we can give her but I hate giving her shots and would rather look at supplements and better hoof maintenance (like every 4 weeks).

So, when people look at the horses at the Sanctuary, what they don't see are the "interesting" cases that we have. This is why we have who we have and we won't let them go because no one wants to deal with "interesting" cases.

We are looking for help in offsetting the cost of the vet bill (and the long-term supplement she will have to be on). Any help is greatly appreciated. Don't forget, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit now so your donations are tax deductible!!!
