Rabbits in Need of Help
Francis has a common chronic disease known as ecuniculi or EC for short. This rabbit disease can affect various organs causing paralysis. When Francis came into the Rabbit Sanctuary he began to present with symptoms which quickly developed into a total body paralysis. Kim said, "Only his nose was moving and only slightly". He was seen by Dr Lucy who made his diagnosis and treatment has been ongoing and Francis lives a fairly normal life apart from occasional relapses which quick veterinary treatment and nursing by Kim fix up in no time. At the time of writing he is well enough to play happily with rabbit toys which is lovely to see.
