Niblet update

For the last couple of months, I've been noticing that Niblet's face looked a little strange:My mom noticed it first and asked me why his mouth looked crooked. I worried that he might have developed another abscess.

So when we got back to Pennsylvania, I knew we'd better go see Dr. Ellen Scholz, the Wonder Vet who took care of Nib when he had his ear abscess. Turns out, Niblet might have Bell's Palsy!

I've known people, including my dad, who've been hit with Bell's Palsy; Ellen the Wonder Vet said she'd seen it in dogs, but this was the first time she'd seen it in a bunny. We'll be going back for a head X-ray next month (after I start my job and start getting paid) to confirm that he doesn't have anything more serious wrong with him, like an abscess that can't be seen in an external exam.

Sometimes, it's not that noticeable:

But sometimes, it's pretty obvious:
unless you imagine that he's doing his Elvis impersonation:
Thank you, thank you very much.

In humans, it's temporary; I hope it's the same in bunnies. He is otherwise fit as a fiddle, strong and weighing in at a trim 4.2 lbs. (hee hee!)

On the bright side, his disapproval powers have become devastatingly potent!Don't say I didn't warn you!

Give His Nibs an extra treat for us - and good luck. Oh those spring pictures - wow! Ours started and then has now gone back in the cooler for awhile ...

Oh, poor Niblet. Get better, sweetie bun!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I'm pretty sure Niblet disapproves of this post.

OK, I have been the world's worst blogfriend ever... But I saw Niblet's name in my reader and boom. Here I am.

Niblet!! I do like the Elvis take on the whole thing though. Poor Niblet, I hope that this passes.

And we are due for a catch up soon. I guess I better read your blog and see how you are.

Matty Boy--hee hee! Nib thanks you.

Dk and Fluffies--he's very proud of himself!

Rabbits' Guy--will do, and thanks. And I'm not at all sure that we won't go back to a little chill here too...

Bunnygirl--thank you!

Monkey--he definitely disapproved of having his picture taken.

Fran--I'm so glad you stopped by! I too have been remiss in my blog-reading. Hope you had a great Easter!
