It has been a tough couple of weeks

Ickus started showing head tilt a couple of weeks ago. Our vet scared us very much, telling us that the outlook was grim and the only way of finding out the cause was a CT scan and a spinal tap (hundreds of dollars).
A family member recommended her vet, who would look at Ickus for half the price. It was just an ear infection and treatment would be simple.
Ickus is now showing some slow but steady recovery and we are so relieved. He is a good little patient. He takes his medicine every day and never protests.

Good thing it was not a very serious case. Sometimes vet scares us so much but good thing you cute rabbit pet is okay. Just keep her for a while in the rabbit hutch away from any other infection that might interfere with its recovery.
