Bravo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bravo
Age: Ten weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tort English Lop
Home: Grayson, Kentucky, USA
   When we adopted Bravo we had no idea he was a very sick little bunny. We found an abscess between his shoulders where another bunny, maybe a littermate, had bitten him. His breeder was unaware of the wound and did nothing for it and it turned into an abscess. Rabbits lack an enzyme that breaks down infection in their bodies so it is very hard for them to fight it. Most abscess have to be removed via surgery. Luckily Bravo has responded well to oral antibiotics and his abscess is totally healed.

    Now he is a healthy and happy member of the family. His ears are around eighteen inches and we guess his age to be about ten to eleven weeks. He loves getting pets and is quiet a sight running through the house with those ears flying behind him like a cape! That is of course until he trips on them which he always does. His favorite foods are red and green leaf lettuce, kale and collard greens. It does my heart good to see him thriving considering our vet said one more day without treatment and his abscess would have been to far gone and we would have lost him! He is a sweet bunny, and we will have to see - but if he ever grows into those ears, he's gonna be a very big boy! He loves hopping around and exploring the world around him, even if he sometimes does step on his ears as they are so long. In fact, his feet are very furry anyway, so I'm sure it must not even hurt, but it sure looks silly!
