At the vets


I brought Hugo to the vet this morning - he was booked in since Wednesday for a dental, since a spur was detected at the last visit, when he got is myxi vaccination.
I have been keeping an eye on him and his eating habits since then, because I didn't want the situation to excalate to him stopping eating, but on the other hand I was so afraid of him going under the anaesthetic. For those of you who do not know, I lost Nik, my first Dutch bunny, while he was waking up from one of his routine dentals, last year in September, and this scarred me big time.
Since I have not heard anything from the vet yet, and it is already quarter past 3 pm, I think that everything has gone ok and they will be calling me soon to let me know when to pick up the young man ...
Miss Eve is looking sad and craving attention...she was quite distraught when I look Hugo away from her, and does not like to be on her own. Every time I go downstairs for tea or coffee she gets up and looks at me, and is more than happy to get a head rub and a treat, but I think what she really wants is her Hugo back for a proper grooming session.

Ooooohh, my goodness! I can taste your apprehension. I'm sure everything will work out, you'll get a beautiful, normal call, and he'll be home soon!
Just for a fun, long weekend diversion, I tagged you for a meme:

Oh boy .. more waiting and worrying :<(

Bunny Lady just won't let any of the bunns go under an anesthetic ..same reason, too scared.

A bonded pair does not like separation, eh?? But their bonding worked and that is great!

yeah anesthetic is a scary thing for a bun ... i trust by now you got the call and Mrs. Eve isn't missing her boy anymore. Zinger is missing Riena some, he does the same thing Mrs. Eve is doing, but i'm spending a lot of time with him. And word is Riena is doing great.

Lovely photos. I'm sure all will be well, but we used to worry every time with Anya too. Its nice that Miss Eve and Hugo have bonded so well that she misses him that much when he's away
