Question: What should I do if my Rabbit eats Housing insulation and I cant afford a vet?


Question by Meg: What should I do if my Rabbit eats Housing insulation and I cant afford a vet?
I have no way to pay for a vet, and all the offices and hospitals I called are closed on sundays. Any help would be extremely apprciated. The rabbit has been able to eat a little and go to the bathroom a little which I think is a good sign, but the rabbit has been pulling its hair out and burrowing… and i’m pretty positive those are bad signs… HELP?

Note: Look, The rabbit is my sister’s. Her best friend gave it to her like, a month before homegirl hung herself in her closet, ok? So it’s not like we went out and we were like, “Ok, we’re broke, but lets get a rabbit!” Also, the fact that My mother recently got laid off due to the economy does not put me at fault for not being able to afford a vet. Especially considering we COULD have afforded one when we accepted the responsibility. So please, no judgement on why i’m a bad ‘rabbit gaurdian’. Please stay on the subject of helping save my rabbit. Thanks.
Note 2: Considering my mom JUST got laid off, it would be kind of hard to take back the month’s cable bill at this point. >.>

and the internet is exponentially less expensive than a visit to the vet and probably surgery. Incase you didnt know.

If you take it to a vet, the vet will probably give it a medication. I would say, if it looks really bad, and if he keeps pulling his hair out and burrowing you should either hold him, or contact someone who knows alot about rabbits. Im a rat expert, so i dont know too well about bunnies. I have a bunny though, when she was sick, the vet gave her medication. I would watch her closely, and make sure she is eating normal. Wish i could be of more help. Good luck, home he feels better.

    really not much you can do now.. give it some stuff for hairballs – like what people give for cats.. or a bit of CANNED PUMPKIN.. hopefully that will do the trick -otherwise – surgery..

    most vets have an emergency number you can call.. they can give advice over the phone “until monday” this is the best thing.. call them and ask what you should do.. kinda make it sound like you will bring bunny in on monday but need help in the meantime.

    now..
    as far as affording a pet

    if you can afford a computer and internet – you CAN afford pet care.
    there are always things a person can sell if they really want to.. its about choices.

    If you can’t afford a vet, you shouldn’t have a pet.
    A nice easy little rhyme to remember.
    It would be like your parents letting you eat housing insulation, and then saying they couldn’t afford to take you to hospital.
    If you cared about your rabbit, you would FIND a way to pay for it.
    I’m sorry, I have no sympathy for you, only for your poor suffering bunny.
