Chonky bunny rescue!
Penelope came into Hamilton Animal Services as a “stray.” This chubby bunny is definitely not a stray. More than likely she was abandoned outdoors by her owners when they no longer wanted her. Behaviourally, Penelope was not doing well in the shelter, so Hamilton Animal Services reached out to us for help. We got Penelope out of the shelter and got her into the vet.
Poor Penelope is obese. It seems wherever she lived before, she didn’t get any exercise at all because she has pretty much no muscle mass. Thankfully, her “rolls” are just fat and do not have any suspicious masses or tumours in them. She does however, have a urinary issue (possibly a condition called bladder sludge) and both of her ears are full of infection. She’s been started on medication, and she’ll have an xray soon to further explore the bladder issue. Penelope has also been started on a very strict diet! She has free run of a whole room in her foster home, so hopefully having lots of space to run around will help her shed some of those extra pounds.
We’ll keep you updated on Penelope’s progress.
Welcome to Ladybird, Penelope. We’re so glad you’re here!
