Update On Shiro

Posted: October 28, 2010 in Inside The Playpen

Shiro is on his way to full recovery. No hard tummy. He is still trying to gain his appetite back. And he is still refuse to munch on his hay.

Since he got his 1st tummy problem on 2nd Oct ago, he only choose to eat fruits and veggies and has reduced his pellets intake. He totally ignored his Oxbow BBT pellet. So i have to blend the pellets, mix with water and Oxbow Critical Care, and force-feed him with syringe. I’m afraid he’ll get diarrhea if consume too much fruits and veggies.

The lump/abscess has slowly reduced, but i can still feel it under his chin.

We’ve done the x-ray. But since the vets here are not really well-verse in interpreting rabbit’s x-ray, we have to send the x-ray to Dr. Lynnette in KL, and hope we will hear a good news from her.

Here are the x-ray for Shiro’s dental. They’re poor quality x-ray photos and blur😦, but i hope Dr Lynnette can have a look on them.

These are the x-ray taken to see the blockage in his stomach.

I’m crossing my fingers and pray the gas and blockage problem will never come back. Please keep praying for our Shiro.
