Hi friends on the internet,

Me and a group of bunny owners have rescued and we are currently fostering Truffles who was on the verge of being put down by his previous owner as she thinks Truffles is “not perfect” and “no one is homed to tend to him” as he requires to be syringe-fed for his recovery.

Truffles is a 1.5 year old male Netherland Dwarf Bunny who has suffered from an EC (E. cuniculi) attack 2 weeks ago.

For my friends here who are curious about what an EC Attack is, its symptoms are similar to what we’d see in a heart attack/stroke in humans.

BUT the parasite, when actively present, causes a head-tilt while also affecting the bunny’s brain, nervous system and other organs

As Truffles’ owners then had brought him to the vet alittle too late, he now has a head-tilt at about 90degrees which is completely parallel to the ground.

Based many many very real and present cases of EC bunnies both locally and internationally, most of them is able to recover and go on to lead their lives fully with proper care and medication, even if their head doesn’t revert itself

However, though we have recommended the then-owner to a vet who have very high and successful rates in treating EC bunnies, the then-owner went ahead with another vet who recommended Truffles to be put down to end his suffering.

Personally, I am not a believer of putting down animals unless, they do CLINICALLY AND PHYSICALLY SHOW SIGNS that they want to be put down.

BUT with initial treatments and recovery, Truffles has made and is still making very good progress with his recovery - showing us that he’s strong and fighting for his recovery.

He was unable to walk, stand or even move initially, but right now he is able to stand and is actively trying to dig his layers pee-pads that are placed for him

Even with that, his then-owners still wants to put him down, unless someone is able to take him in.

Truffles requires bi-weekly follow ups and medication refills till the vet has deemed that his gut has recovered and the active parasite is no longer present

As a Bunmom with two of my own bunnies and also a University Undergrad with no stable and fixed income from my part time jobs, I am not able to fully support Truffle’s medical bills alone.

Currently, each visit to the vet costs about 1.3k and it is still unclear how many more visits he needs until recovery.

But, with Truffle’s recovery progress, I believe he deserves a shot at recovering and leading his fullest life, but he just requires alittle bit of help from everyone else.

If you believe that Truffles deserves a shot at life like I do, we will really appreciate any amounts of donations which will be used for his vet visits.

If you’re unable to help financially, please do us a favour and share this Gogetfunding around!

Thank you
