Grandbunnies: an update

I thought I'd let you all know that all the bunnies that Ginger had been carrying died. In fact, Ginger almost died with them. She has been through quite a lot in the past week. After three shots to induce her and two rounds of x-rays she had to be taken in this morning for a c section.

She is going to be fine, but she won't be breeding again. Tyler and Megan had made the decision before the surgery to go ahead and have her spayed at the same time. She had been through enough and they had spent much more than they anticipated. But then once they started the surgery the vet discovered that her uterus had ruptured and the three remaining babies were lodged between her liver and kidney. Poor Ginger!

I'm sure this is all more than you wanted to know about bunny reproduction, but we've been planning this for a while now and for it all to turn out this way is kind of a let down. But we're all glad that Ginger is going to be healthy again soon and back to her spunky little self.

Next up on the bunny agenda: get Milton neutered. Won't that be fun?
