It is good practice to check your bunnies daily for signs of fly-strike, especially if they are overweight and struggle to reach everywhere to clean. We seem to have seen an increased number of cases this year in the UK, which is most likely related to the odd weather. Checking your rabbit for this unpleasant and potentially deadly condition may also give you a chance to spot other problems they might have...
After my long Wednesday, I was hoping for an easier one yesterday. So I wasn't overly excited when it turned out I would be spending much of the beginning of Thursday extracting a medium sized whole dead slug from Jemima's dewlap. I struggle to understand how, but it had deeply matted itself into her short fur. She seemed at least as disgusted with the removal process as I was, though I'm pretty sure she was happy to be rid of it as she flew into a round of mad binkies straight after (though there could also have been an "ewwww" and "shakin'-off-the-yuck" factor to that too).
After recovering from her "slug-strike" incident, she also had to endure an unrelated trip to the vet to have her breathing checked and pick up some medicines, so that's another of my bunnies that's going to hate me for the coming weeks.
Do they still make Tamagotchi's? It might be my only chance of pet appreciation any time soon.
