cute syrian hamster female, over 2 years old, with a suspicious lump in her groin, but at her age it isn't wise to operate as it doesn't appear to cause her any problems at the moment.
A small sort of lop black female, around 5 months old. Bess arrived with E cuniculi, and has had three months daily treatment with panacur, but still has balance problems. She's bright and lively and doesn't realise that she is slightly disabled, so need understanding owners that can cope with her dizziness and continue to worm her regularly. HOMED
A pretty tricolour, agouti, cream and white, female, probably around a year old, has had to have an eye removed due to an injury. She manages very well, and you wouldn't realised that she is partially sighted. Sociable and friendly, needs another guinea pig (or two) to live with. HOMED
Dementia, is a sweet girl, an OAP, harlequin small lop, but a bit strange and we suspect she has a bunny form of alzheimers! She was found abandoned with a male rabbit, and both showed all the signs of being very old. Their nails were long, thick and corkscrewed, mammoth amount of wax in their ears, slight hint of cataracts, stiff legs etc. She has been spayed, and has slightly difficult digestion, so we're looking for an experience rabbit person to give her a retirement home where she can be closely observed and will need to be inside in the winter. HOMED
UPDATE - All now rehomed.
22 October These are some of the 28 guinea pigs that have arrived with skin problems
They will be treated, the males neutered and the females kept until we are sure they are not pregnant before they are looking for homes
Wild Child was taken to a RSPCA hospital with an injured back leg. It was amputated and she was passed to a rescue centre for homing. It was only then discovered that she was wild. She was terrified at first but now rushes to us for a fuss. She will sit still for as long as possible while her head is being rubbed.
She is now ready to find a home. She is spayed and has been living temporally with a gentle old Mini Lop.
she has now found a loving home which is perfect for her needs
We have rabbits with incisors removed for malalignment. Steptoe's top incisors were curled round so far they pressed on his tongue and forced his mouth to stay open, then curled upwards and touched the roof of his mouth. He was emaciated and dehydrated as he could not eat. His previous owner was unaware that he was suffering from starvation. An emergency dash to our vet for fluids, then to be operated on and he was lucky to survive. HOMED
He is a lovely friendly little rabbit. His coat has now improved so he is looking less scruffy. But is waiting for one further dental operation before he will be ready to find a home Update: 23 July, he has just had another operation to sort out his incisors, and hopefully this will be the last one and he'll soon be ready for rehoming.
Blue magpie dwarf lop, male, approx 8/10 weeks old. This baby rabbit was abandoned at a garden centre, he has an old injury, resulting in the lower half of one rear leg missing.
Update 28th Nov: Tiggi had to have his leg amputated as an emergency yesterday, but is recovering very well, He was also neutered at the same time.
Tiggi has now found a new home
These two Netherland Dwarf-cross brothers first came to us at 5 months old as the result of an accidental litter, caused by a pet shop mis-sexing two babies they sold together. They almost definitely have the max factor gene as they have typically soft coats and were born with their eyes open, resulting in severe infection. They also had severe entropion and malocclusion of the incisors. Sadly their owner had not had any vet treatment so they were in very poor condition on arrival. Since then, they have been neutered, both upper and lower eyelids operated on, and their incisors removed. Their eyes have serious scar tissue, so their vision is very limited (except for one of Barclaycard's eyes).
The boys did go to a home briefly as house rabbits, but unfortunately they just couldn't get the hang of house-training, so were returned.
UPDATE 26 MAY - One of our helpers has given them a permanent home.
in a large hutch and run combination which is just perfect for them.
This 7 month old orange and white dutch female arrived with a serious head tilt. Her previous owner had treated her with a course of panacur for E Cuniculi. We have subsequently given her another course for 6 weeks, so even if EC was the cause of her problem, she no longer has the active stage of the condition. Her balance is generally good, just slightly wobbly when picked up quickly, and she is a sweet natured friendly little rabbit. Twisty Top has now found a home
Percy is about 5-6 years old, neutered male, who was kept in a tiny hutch and he had a severley displaced broken hind leg.He was not taken to a vet and came into rescue about 6 months after the accident, so his leg had fused in a very difficult position which made it almost impossible for him to get around. He recovered quickly after the leg was amputated, but had a lot of muscle wastage so his movement is restricted, but he copes well and adores his friend Edwina.
Edwina is about 3 years old, neutered female, lionhead who had half her leg, her vent area and tail all bitten off by her mother at birth. She had to have the remaining part of her hind leg amputated and had a couple of minor ops 'down below' to tidy up the area. Edwina does need to be cleaned up regularly and so would need an experienced adult home. She is very mobile and copes extremely well, and adores Percy. REHOMED
