Mary Lou and Oscar had been returned to the organization last fall, and at that time Mary Lou's front teeth were clipped, but I am not sure if her foster parent did it, or if a vet did it. I know she saw a vet at that time. I was told that I could clip her teeth myself, and I was told how to do it, but I wanted to take her to a vet because I didn't want to run the risk of making things worse for her. Her cheek teeth are only slightly overgrown, and I don't think they were ever clipped before, so I suspect that the front teeth might be the problem, but thanks for the suggestion, it gives me some ideas of what questions I should ask. I wish I knew what her teeth looked like last fall. I would feel better if her teeth were ground down before going through with surgery, but I feel that it is not my deision since I won't be the one to pay for it. She is outside where I can allow her to graze on grass for 10 hour a day, so I hope those cheek teeth will wear down. I would like to take a wait and see approach, and see she what happens before doing something permant like teeth removal. I have asked the organization if they would like me to take her to another vet for a second opinion, but I haven't heard back yet.
I am expected to pay for her medical bills, and then the organization pays me back, which is tough for me since I lost my job. If it becomes too stressful, I might just return her to her previous home, which I hate to do. Her previous foster mom is a wonderful woman who used to foster for the HRS when she lived in another state. Her house is small, and Mary Lou and Oscar (bonded pair) would have only a fraction of the room to exercise in than they have now. She has a small rabbit room where she has 8 other rabbits that she rotates out of their cages, so my pair would not be able to have the freedom they are used to. That makes it hard for me to give them up.
