HAZEL – January 2020
Bunnies are family too! Hazel is a 4 year old Mini Rex rabbit, a beloved family member and of course her needs always come first. Recently, Hazel developed a massive lump on her chin that was worsening. Hazel’s guardian was afraid she would lose her and knew she needed immediate care. Hazel was diagnosed with a sub-mandibular abscess and malocclusion of cheek teeth, due to genetics and not preventable. Her veterinarian did not have the tools for the surgery and was referred to West Coast Veterinary Dental, where they have rabbit experts that are able to handle sensitive bunnies, she would be in good hands. Hazel’s guardian raised whatever she could, and we stepped in to help her with the rest.
Hazel had her surgery on the 7th, and we have received a fantastic update! Hazel is doing really well, she sits patiently while receiving compresses on her chin, twice a day for “5 minutes straight”. Hazel is back with her family and her sister Walnut, living the happy life! Her guardian is very thankful!
