It sounds like you are fighting a bit of a loosing battle with your mum at the moment. Maybe you should show her some of the posts on here to try and get her to change her mind. When she is restricting what you can and can't do with your bunny she is - to a degree - limiting the health of your bunny. Bunnies need the room and when it comes to not being able to fit littler pans - which is in turn damaging your bunnies nails - well that is just ridiculous. It's not like they need a huge space (which a lot of the people on here provide). I certainly don't have a bunny mansion (as much as I wish I did ). Belle has a small dog crate with some plain (non coloured or treated) base wall paper along the bottom so she isn't standing on the metal and while it isn't huge it is better than your conventional rabbit cage. Maybe you could suggest getting one of those? I hope your mum comes to her senses and realises that maybe she has the wrong opinion when it comes to what a rabbit needs. I'm sure she wouldn't like to think of herself as someone who is in essence showing neglect to her animals by not providing the correct care.

I convinced my mom to let me build a bigger cage in my room and we scheduled an appointment at a new place bc the old place wasn't answering the phone. I'm excited that lilly is finally going to the vet bc its free and rock solid this time oh yeah and i forgot to mention, now that its free, I have a ton of money left over for meds. i guess all that saving up and stress was for nothing

$55 is i think quite reasonable and the longer you leave it the more likely it is that a small problem can become more serious which would mean a much larger vert bill. Bunnies are not cheap pets and you will need to be prepared for the possibility of other vet expenses in the future. My last vet bill was around $160 when Parsley was unwell with gut stasis. A checkup is about $60-70 where i am. Just keep in mind that vet expenses are something that comes with the responsibility of owning a pet, i understand its harder when you're younger (i'm a poor uni student myself), maybe make a 'bunny fund' which you can put a little bit of money in every so often to save for those unexpected expenses in the future

I'm so happy for you and Lilly!  Glad your mum came round .  Any ideas on what kind of cage you'll build?

How frustrating, bloody idiots... The least they could do is make sure they note any exclusions before people go there. Sorry they ruined your day and little Lilly couldn't get treatment. Don't lose hope.

Is it possible to negotiate with your Mum, trade off some extra chores for the vet costs ? Or work out a repayment plan ? I know the first part is convincing her of the importance of the vet visit and that must be so very hard trying to negotiate with someone who is not ready to listen and you certainly don't want to create conflict between you and your Mum... But fair, reasonable and NON Nagging negotiation based on sound fact and research often helps with parents especially when they can see you have put a lot of work into it and are approaching them with respect.

That's awful that they made you go there for nothing. Is there any other vets you can try?

Can you only go on a Sunday? Vets aren't typically open on the weekend, unless they are an emergency vet, in which case their fee will be much higher.
