I took the darn rabbit to the vets again this morning. Well actually, I took her to the dentist first. I wasn't quite concentrating properly and when I parked outside the dentist surgery, Tall Girl, who always enjoys a good vets visit, asked what we were doing there! I suddenly realised I should be at the vets instead, which is only two streets away, so off we dashed - drove very carefully because the white fluffy thing slips about in her box- and arrived for her appointment in the nick of time.
During a vets visit there is always a glimmer of hope that the current problem from which she is suffering won't have a cure. However there is no end to modern veterinary medicine it seems! After having paid for a course of 3 injections recently for the mite problem, which was making her fur drop out in clumps and which haven't quite done the trick, the vet now informed me that I need some drops of stuff to put behind her ears. Probably as expensive as Channel no.5 but not quite as fragrant! Anyway I have to pick it up tomorrow, yet another trip, and pay him then. You wouldn't believe how much that rabbit has cost over the last 18 months!
Then, the nit children arrived. More medical traumas in store, I thought, as the nit boy cheerfully announced that he has a skin infection! A skin infection? OMG he's the one giving it to the rabbit after all!
So what next for 2009? Plague and pestilence in abundance in BS9! Happy New Year by the way, just in case I expire before tomorrow!
