This is Tuesday the bunny who was caught in Danbury, Ct. She is a young female bunny who is bearing up wonderfully well under painful, frightening circumstances It appears that Tuesday has multiple chemical burns all over the top of her body as well as in both eyes. We prefer to think that she lay underneath something that was dripping but we strongly suspect someone may have tossed acid or a caustic chemical on her. Both eyes are horribly burned and infected. They are so occluded with pus that you cannot see her eyes. In the morning they need to be soaked open. Treatment consists of washing them out several times a day, instilling an anti-inflammatory drop three a day and antibiotic drops multiple times a day. Yes, this is painful. This will take a long time to heal but there is a good chance she may regain full vision. If there is serious scarring then her sight will be limited for life. Her skin burns are fairly superficial but painful They are being treated with two strong antibiotics as they are all horribly infected. Of course she is on a strong dose of pain medication. She has a long road back to healthy but with lots of supportive care our vet believes she has a good chance at a normal life. She is very young and deserves a chance at a good life. She will be quarantined for a couple of weeks as much for her sake as for the sake of the other bunnies at thge Hopalong Hollow.Tuesday's better eye Tuesday enjoying her greens.. Despite all she has been through she is gentle and very cooperative. She seems to sense that we are helping her. She takes her medications with no arguments and even the eye washes and drugs are accepted stoically. I doubt we will ever know if this was accidental or intentional. Her care is intensive and somewhat costly. Donations toward her care will be greatly appreciated!
