A VERY sick Jaks...

Well it's not looking like we'll be getting back to a new studio season quite yet.
We've had a very very sick bunny since Thursday morning...
one day Jaks was perfectly fine and the next something was drastically wrong...
In short (and sparing everyone details) what happened was that he was bitten by a bug & developed
the worst skin infection we've ever seen.
It seemed to develop and spread over night on his back & bum
It all started under a little matt of fur that we didn't even notice until it had all gone horribly bad...
but after a rough 48 hours, we're tentatively hopeful that we're taking steps toward healing...
though now we're also dealing with a very difficult case of g.i. stasis because of what happened.
After 3 days apart, Jinny is now allowed to be with him and she's really helping to keep
his spirits up & is giving him lots of kisses and snuggles...


(this was Jaks last month...most of his fur on the back end & legs has had to be shaved off :C)

He's still not out of the woods by any means, with the g.i. stasis still present and danger of infection in the wounds...so do please send our sweet boy some extra good vibes and positive thoughts & hope...
And maybe perhaps some good mojo for us too.
It's been so scary & unlike any rabbit ailment we've seen in 15 years of having buns.
Well this is about all I can manage to write this evening.
I'll hop in again as soon as I can, hopefully with some good news.
