Unhappy He has been through so much...

Well I took Harvey to the vets this afternoon, so that he could have his bits checked (he was neutered last Thursday), and one of his testicles is all swollen.. The vet has given me some Baytril, so once a day I have to give him some.. So not only am I giving Billy (had a fight with Harvey and now has a bitten ear) medicine once a day but now Harvey too..
Poor little guy has been through so much, and now this..

Thanks Lucy, the thing is that Amber and Jasmine also have bitten ears.. When they were about a year old they had a fight and I suppose the easiest thing to grab is the ear.. After that I had them both spayed, they are both happy bunnies indeed.. Shame I cant say the same about Billy and Harvey at the moment!

Maybe we should start a Bitten Ears club? Poor Harvey, I hope he gets better soon. Lots of hugs and get well wishes coming from Charlie and Harry.

We gave Harvey the Baytril earlier on, and the testicle is still quite swollen.. Lets just hope it works?

Steph, I recently went through this with a chinchilla (yes, I know, completely different species) and had to have him on antibiotics, too.

Unfortunately for me, there was dead tissue built up in the swollen area, causing it to become infected and he had to have MORE surgery!!

I hope your little Harvey makes a fast recovery and the Baytril starts helping that swollen area!

Steph, he's doing much better!! The surgery they did really helped him out a lot. I was very happy to be able to give them a dust bath last week, as they really needed it! (Now they need another one!)

Again, here's hoping for Harvey to make a speedy recovery!
