Baby Bunnies

On July 5th Tom brought home 2 baby bunnies that each had conjunctivitis in one eye. It just broke my heart. I didn't post about them, or take photos, because I was sure that they were going to die. They were very, very infected, starved and barely 10 days old. The only hope I had was that they moved around and wanted to eat. So, we regularly soaked and cleaned their bad eyes, painstakingly cleaned up their fur, fed them alfalfa hay, fresh dandelion greens, ground pellets and goat's milk (by eyedropper). They lived.

They are still under "clean up" care in my living room but they are eating, playing, grooming themselves and each other and their fur is almost totally clean. I believe that they will both be blind in their infected eyes, but I am not positive. The white rabbit's bad eye almost looks normal now. I just can't figure out how to give an eye test to a bunny! Lol :)

Hi Marguerita,

The bunnies are so cute. It was wonderful of you to look after them as you did. My daughter had a dwarf bunny named Licorice that we had for about 8 years. She had quite a personality and we all loved her very much and missed her terribly when she passed.

Looks like you are doing a wonderful job bringing the bunnies back to a healthy state. I am sure the granddaughter loves them.
