An update on Indy the Bunny:
I called Animal 911 this morning. It sounded like Indy was doing better, but they wanted her transfered to our vet. So, I drove through rush hour traffic to Skokie to pick up our bunny. Indy had eaten a little and did urinate, so things are moving around, though she isn't back to normal. The tech at Animal 911 lit up when I said Indy's name. It sounds like everybody there knew Indy. The tech went in the back and brought Indy out. She looked all happy, sitting up in her carrier, nice and alert. The tech said goodbye to Indy and we were off on our trek from Skokie to Westchester.
Indy doesn't like being in the car, so by the time we got to the vet, she's a little stressed again, but this is normal.
The vet was empty, but they were expecting Indy as Animal 911 faxed over all of the pertinent information. I met still another doctor today, but she seemed really clued-in to rabbits so I was put at ease. It sounded like everything was fixable, but it was going to take work. It sounds like 2 weeks of antibiotics, and then if she stops eating, a whole slew of G.I. drugs to keep things going again. She also thought that - after looking at the x-ray - there's no indication of arthritis or any other problems and the pain was probably all due to the bladder "sludge" as everybody has been calling it. The doctor said it's like the sand in one of those stress-relieving balls. Indy would stay the day and they would watch her and see what's going on. I have to call after 4pm to see if she can come home. I hope she can.
Update: I called the vet this afternoon. Indy ate a little this morning. They're force feeding her the rest. She's producing pellets, but they were pretty small. If we would bring her home, there's a good chance we'd have to bring her back tomorrow, so I elected to let her stay the night so they could watch her and feed her.
Chip keeps going over to Indy's cage to see where she is. I think he misses her. He's not as active without her.
