No Ponies

No ponies yesterday. I drove to Watsonville to help the Rabbit Haven rescue with a mass spay neuter clinic.  Rabbits are a bit different from cats and dogs. You can't put them in a holding cage to wake up while you just keep an eye on them. Bunnies need to be armed and massaged, while their body temp is closely monitored. It is more common for them to go into shock and die, or just have such a hard time waking up that they stop breathing. Each rabbit had a team of two people to help them come to. It takes a half an hour or more before they could go into a pen and be watched by another team. We did over 20 bunnies yesterday.

Here is a photo of my two buns, Silver and Pierre.
