Bambi's Eye Surgery

Bambi and Clint both show visible scars from their first home. Clint is missing half of his ear. It doesn't seem to bother him, and it doesn't need any care.

Bambi is missing part of her eyelid. After a few months of having her I noticed that the eyeball itself was drying out. She can close her eye, but there is always this exposed gap. Part of the eyelid itself is turning inside out. I put ointment on her eye every night to keep the eyeball from drying, but the eyelid still gets sore; somedays it gets more irritated than others. She also can't blink normally, which is a problem when she gets dirt in it (which is often because she loves to dig).

So tomorrow morning she will go in (Cinnamon will go with for company) and have a little bunny plastic surgery. You can kind of see her eye in this picture.

I want to keep an eye on her for a day or two while she is healing, so I have the guest bathroom all set up for her and Cinnamon.

Wish us well!
