I have no advice, seeing as I am new to having a bunny, but we all truly hope that Bindi is feeling better soon. I'm thinking about you guys and hope that things calm down for you soon so that you can relax and have time to properly deal with losing Stormy. Hugs and vibes to you and Bindi.

I'm going to try leaving the cone off for the day. His lump thing is now pretty hard and looks like a hard prune. It's pretty gross. The vet said that it would dry up like a scab and then fall off. So I think it's beyond the point that licking will hurt it. As long as he doesn't pick it off.

I took the cone off and gave him his cardboard house back (which he sleeps in) and he was so glad to have it back. I had to take it away so he wouldn't get stuck in there with the cone. He's in there sleeping right now. He ate almost all his veggies at breakfast. Can't wait till we can stop the CC. He's so difficult about it. I keep telling him he needs to be a good patient like his brother was. Stormy was so much more easy going with medical stuff.

That all sounds very promising, LPT. I think he is clearly on the mend.
And we all know that a very sick bunny is cooperative, but the first sign of recovery is feistiness, so I think he is doing great being uncooperative.
Glad to hear he got a good sleep in his house. AND is eating his veggies. A return to normal food must be better for him, isn't it?

I didn't realize that the lump is going to dry and fall off. That will make you both feel so much better when it happens. Does he get a medicated salve to put on the area when it does fall off if it's still a bit raw or exposed underneath?

Go find your own favorite cardboard box, now, and crawl in for some much needed rest.

He finished his veggies and ate some hay and pellets. Should I cut out the CC completely or keep giving it? He's at a pretty low weight right now. But giving the CC is frustrating and angering him. I'd love to just stop it now that he's eating.

If he is eating on his own, I would stop the CC. Don't want to over fill his tummy, and he'll probably like the break

I'd be tempted to cut it down to once a day but not stop completely. Possibly pick a time of day when he is the most tired and least uncooperative (too sleepy to struggle much). Then give him a dose at that time. That way he gets more in his system to promote weight gain and has balanced nutrition.

Continued Healing Vibes to BB!! I know absolutely nothing about his illnesses and how to help treat them -- but just wanted to give my love and hope you are both doing okay physically and mentally as quickly as you can be expected too!

Much love and healing vibes again to both of you!

I'm very glad to hear that Bindi is eating all of his veggies and some hay and pellets too. Until he's back to his normal consumption of hay and pellets, it would probably be best to give him one or two feedings of CC a day.

I've only had to give CC once, but my bunny didn't like it and got very upset. He does not like to be handled at all and works himself up into a real state. After a few horrible sessions I came up with a different way to get some in him, by making it into little cookies, then baking them for a few minutes in my toaster oven. It's possible that the heat of the oven may have destroyed some of the nutrients, but I had a terrible struggle trying to get him to eat it the normal way, so I came up with the cookie idea, and I knew at least he was getting food in his system. I mixed the CC and water in equal parts so it had a thicker consistency than normal. I put little nickel sized portions on a baking tray, then after a few minutes, put them in the toaster oven. It's been a while and I don't remember the details. I only baked them for 5 or 10 minutes and I guess the oven was on 300 -350 degrees. I really should have written down exactly what I did. I let them cool and offered one to him. He wouldn't eat them at first, but did start eating them after a few tries. My other bunny, who did not need CC, enjoyed the CC cookie nonetheless.

I hope that Bindi keeps steadily improving!

I'm sure that making cookies is fine. I got an instruction sheet that said to use less and less water to make them dry balls that are more like cookies anyway since some bunnies prefer it when they are getting better. Sounds like a good recipe.
