I know I haven't posted in a while, and here's why: my rabbit, Julie, became very sick with an inner ear infection. I've spent most of the past two weeks caring for her and worrying, so I haven't been online as much as usual. She developed a pretty bad head tilt, and I plan on posting a video on YouTube about it some time next week, just to share her story and to give some helpful tips on caring for your bunny if he/she develops a head tilt too!
I'm very happy to say that she has recovered completely in terms of the head tilt, and I hope we can stop with the meds soon. It's bad to take antibiotics for long periods of time...
Anyway, here are some before & after pics, In the photo on the left (taken 09/08/13), you can see that one side of her head is facing upward....yes, her head was nearly tilted to 90 degree angle at its worst! On the right is Julie from this past Thursday, and as you can see her head is straight!
Her recovery is actually a very fast one, from what I've read online, it usually took months to cure!
To give you an idea of the time line, I saw her head tilt on Sept 4, took her to the vet next day, and started the medications Sept 6th. It was gone on Sept 19th.
Today she is very hyper, energetic, and her appetite is back to normal.
My only complaint is that now that she's back to her normal self she doesn't want to stay still when I'm giving her the meds lol! But I'm very glad she's back to normal♥.
That's all folks ;D
