Megacolon (A Special Easter Mini-Episode)

After Episode 6, one of our listeners was interested that we'd mentioned Megacolon. We'd actually talked about it a bit more at the time, but cut it from the episode. So this is our little All Ears Easter Egg for Rob, and anyone else who wants a brief introduction to Megacolon. Happy Easter Everybunny!

EPISODE 6: JO HINDE PART 2: VETS & WHAT TO DO IF YOUR RABBIT IS NOT WELL

Our sixth episode - with Very Special Guest Jo Hinde, the Blue Cross Vet Nurse of the Year 2014 & RWAF Outreach Officer. In this episode we talk about rabbit savvy vets, how to tell if your rabbit is not well, and what the signs may indicate. We would always advocate that you contact a rabbit savvy vet if your rabbit is ill, but hope that this episode will give you more of an insight into what to look out for and the potential severity of the situation.

 It is a continuation of our chat with Jo in Episode 5, where we talked about some of the many ways in which rabbit welfare can be improved and raising awareness of these issues. 

Please note: Always call your vet if the rabbit is ill or not eating, and before syringe feeding your rabbit in case of a blockage.

Disclaimer: All views and opinions within All Ears are those of the speaker, and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of any organisation which they may be associated with.  While we attempt to provide accurate, up to date information, we would always advise you to contact a rabbit expert or vet with any specific concerns or questions.

Episode 3: Dr Twigs Way Part 1: Housing


THIS EPISODE IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF COLTSFOOT
Coltsfoot was one of Twigs' rescue bunnies who thrived in Twigs' care after being rescued by the RSPCA, but remained very very special needs. He's mentioned in the episode, but sadly between recording and releasing the episode he passed away during an operation on an abscess behind his eye.
RIP COLTSFOOT

 

Our third episode - featuring our first Very Special Guest, Dr Twigs Way. We talk to her about her recent talk on housing at the 2014 RWAF Conference. Twigs very kindly sent us a pdf of her presentation which is viewable below.

(Also we recorded this episode using Google Hangouts instead of Skype, and the sound quality isn't quite as good - so we're very sorry about that.)

NB The above pdf is pretty large - so there's one with lower quality pictures at the bottom of the links in case the large file size of this one causes any problems.
