Gotta admit, she's pretty cute.

I am a very bad coworker. Dr. Rogers, our illustrious rabbit DVM asked me to post this prior to Easter.  I’m almost two weeks late, but here is her (very brief) guest post:

How often do you get to say you operated on the Easter bunny? I feel privileged to get the opportunity.
Lubelle, 3 pound black and white lop, presented from Rabbit Rescue as a returned adoption for urine dribbling. On exam, I palpated two large hard masses so we radiographed her abdomen. She had 2 large stones approximately 2.5 cm a piece in her bladder. My technician, Amy, was jokingly calling the stones- Easter eggs due to their shape and size. Since Lubelle was not feeling well, she was treated with pain medication, antibiotics, and intravenous fluids over the weekend. On Monday, I removed the two large stones from her bladder. Lubelle aka the Easter bunny is recovering well.

Happy Belated Easter!

  1. Returned due to urine dribbling – and they didn’t take her to the doctor? Shame on them.

    Is Lubelle doing OK now?
