Need funding for Bunny's Treatment



Story of Blossom

Blossom is a rescue bunny from Bunny Wonderland (BW). She was found with 5 other bunnies along Bukit Batok Road on 14 June 2015. Abandoned by their breeder, spiders and maggots were found all over them. BW was contacted and they brought the bunnies for a thorough health check at The Animal Clinic. All 5 rabbits had huge clumps of fur held together by poo, pee and dirt. Their nails were horrendously long which indicated long-term negligence. Blossom had fur loss around her neck and had to be nursed back to health.

My friend, Wendy, adopted Blossom from BW on 7 August 2016 and she is now 5 years old. Wendy is an avid animal lover and has cared for rabbits many years. Wendy learned about adoption on Instagram through “Bunnymama” and decided to contact BW to help rescue a rabbit. During the BW adoption drive, little Blossom was the only rabbit that went up to Wendy and licked her hand. The volunteers at BW saw the chemistry between Blossom and her and decided that Blossom had chosen her owner.

Blossom has since been living with Wendy and her family in a loving environment with unlimited hay supplemented with nutritious pellets in a nice cosy playpen filled with fun toys. Blossom is fed with fresh vegetables every day. She has truly found a home of joy!

Blossom's Condition

However, few days ago, an unfortunate health issue struck Blossom. She stopped eating and drinking and was brought to The Animal Doctor. The vet suspects a growth on her right eye and due to extricating pain, she has lost about 100g (7% of her mass weight) which is very significant to a small animal. The vet is suspecting her of Retrobulbar Abscess or Mass Growth and medication was given but has been ineffective. In fact, the growth surrounding her eye has been growing rapidly and has ruptured quickly, resulting in the loss of sight in her right eye. She is now hospitalised at The Animal Doctor and is scheduled for a CT Scan on 7 Sep, Thu at Landon Specialist which is the earliest CT scan that we can make for Blossom due to the severity of her condition. Daily hospitalisation cost is about S$180 - S$220 and the CT Scan will cost around S$3,000. Her upcoming surgery to remove the growth will amount to another S$1,500. The vet will have to remove her entire eye to remove the growth mass.

Blossom means a lot to her Wendy and they are very attached to each other. It has been heart-breaking time to see Blossom in so much pain and discomfort. I hereby seek your help to give your best to help in the hefty costs so that Blossom can get her due treatment. She is still active and her left eye is in perfect sight. She is currently on drip so that her overall health can improve. Blossom’s organs are functioning well and has the potential of adapting well to her environment after her surgery.

Your *giving will help Blossom go a long way and I will post updates on her condition here.

Thank you so much!
Lawrence

*All costs are based on the clinic's quotation. All funds raised will go to Blossom’s treatment and donated to Bunny Wonderland thereafter.

*as the costs are based on the clinic's quotation, if there are any leftovers,
proceeds will go to the bunny shelter.

May I suggest that the owner also post pictures of vet bills/ invoices, quotation for the next treatments, etc in his gogetfunding to show people that it is a genuine case.
Hope Blossom will recover soon.

Thank you AistroCats for your suggestions, I am in the midst of getting the quotation from the Vet and will get it scanned and post them up.
