Bun-Sitting Sir-Hops-A-Lot

August 3, 2010

I’m bunny sitting Sir-Hops-A-Lot aka Hoppy aka Hopsie.  He was with us last month as well when his human, Mark, went away for his wedding.

You might notice that he’s got a busted leg in the picture.  Hopsie is about 9 years old and in bunny years, that’s pretty old.  He’s got arthritis in his hind quarters which makes him not able to move his back legs as much.  This also creates a problem for his bathroom habits so that’s why he’s on puppy training pads.  Despite being on the training pads, he still has trouble moving about when he pees or poops so he also requires nightly butt baths.  We basically take him, and run his butt under the facet to clean him out.  He doesn’t seem to like it and in fact, he bit me tonight but at least he’s clean for the day.

Due to his medical conditions, we’ve got to feed him gloucosamine to help his arthritis (which we put in a banana) and also syringe feed him meloxicam.

All the bunnies get their veggies and we call it a night.
