Bunny Emergency! Any Suggestions?!

    I was clipping Bogarts nails and noticed he has a spot of torn skin. :( Of course the bunny savvy vets are closed Sunday, the emergency vet didn't want to take him because it wasn't enough of an emergency and it isn't their specialty and told us to go to our regular vet in the morning. :no2: My regular vet better take him. When I asked about the buns when we first got them, they essentially suggested we go elsewhere. Gaud.... someone fix Raven's damn bunny! :mad: We're going to stay up and start calling around in the morning to find someone to help him. :( I read that they will probably just surgical glue it shut. I was just wondering if anyone has ever experienced anything like this and if there is something we can do in the meantime.

    Shave the area, clean it with betadine and super glue it together. That's what super glue was invented for, after all.

    I found that suggestion online but I was too nervous to try it myself! lol Gaud... I'm so used to dealing with tough as nail dogs, just clipping the nails on the bunnies stresses me out so much that I sweat the whole time through it for fear of breaking them or scaring them to death! lol

    We wound up waiting until my vet was open and even though bunnies aren't their specialty, they said to bring him and and they did essentially just that to him, plus got him on some antibiotics just in case. He actually did pretty good. I was really worried about his stress level but I think he enjoyed the whole adventure and the vet just loved him! After the stress of being up all night with him, I don't think the rest of us will ever recover! lol

    I'm late to respond as well. Gala's right though. Problem with buns having such paper thin skin. :(

    Woot! That's good! I know he's Zoe's bunny, but you should get him a "bunspace" account. :D
