Miss Eve developed a strange sound last weekend...sort of a grunt, mostly heard when she's grooming herself and when she's eating, sometimes also when she's petted. I brought her to see Jo the vet yesterday, and she's booked in for tomorrow morning for x-rays, blood work and evtl. a scan, if the x-rays proved to be not enough. Jo could not hear the heart because the breathing was so noisy when she checked on Miss Eve, and wouldn't say what it could be. I did a search on the internet and on Etherbun for similar sounding buns, and the scariest things mentioned were congestive heart failure and thymoma, followed by pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infections. Jo excluded the last two, as she said the sound she heard wasn't a wheezing sound at all, which is apparently what you get when you have a lung infection. Please do send your vibes to Miss Eve, especially because the whole procedure is going to be done under light sedation. I am so afraid that, just like Nik, she will go to sleep to never wake up again... and then of course I am scared by what Jo may find, but alas, this has to be done to see if Miss Eve can be helped.
No pics of Miss Eve and Neville, but one of Freddie, a tiny wild bunny that was raised by my bunnysitter Amy - Freddie was handed over to a pet shop when her eyes were still closed and she had hardly any hairs on...now look how cute she is, at 3 months!
