canoeing

Broken pets again

Ash bunny is doing generally OK, but her teeth have started to grow oddly. Local Vet says 'keep an eye on them' : thank you, I think I could have worked that out without paying you £20.

More usefully, my online rabbit contacts suggest that the back teeth may be overgrowing and forcing the front teeth sideways. Am considering another trip to Ivybridge Vet to get this checked out properly, though I don't think it's too urgent yet as she is eating well and the teeth are still biting on one another and wearing themselves down, if in a slightly odd way. It appears that this is a bit unusual to start at the age of 6 though.

Have started Mollydog on Previcox for her bad leg. Local Vet much more convincing as dog vet than as rabbit vet. I don't think that vet actually likes rabbits.

Mollydog is 29.5kg, which worried me slightly as her racing weight was only 25.5 kg. But the vet pleased me by saying she wasn't carrying much weight at all and was nice and muscly :-D. Az is 21.5KG, which I think is about a kilo more than he was last time. He is perhaps looking just a little chunky, but not too bad.

Yesterday evening's walk, Az cut his paw. This morning's walk (short, because of rain and bandaged paw) Mollydog got stung by a wasp. The wasp got stuck on her by the sting and could not pull out. I had to pull it off her!

It's a house of woe here this morning...
