Rescuing an Orphaned Bunny | Critter Fixers: Nation Vets

[phone ringing]

Let's see

Hey, bud!

It's a little, little bunny

See any wounds on it?

KIM GUIDRY: It's got
one little wound

NARRATOR: Kim Guidry
brought in an injured bunny

TERRENCE FERGUSON: Yeah, it's
got a little blood on the arm

right there, see?

VERNARD HODGES: Hey,
my furry little friend

Last night, while we were
cleaning up the dinner dishes,

my daughter and I
heard a noise outside

And our cat had brought
us a baby bunny

We need to get you
warmed up, though

It's awful cold

[rabbit squeaking]

We'll get him shaved
up and get him warm

[rabbit squeaking]
I know!

TERRENCE FERGUSON Gonna
get going here, OK?

Hey

If you could imagine a
giant coming out of the sky

and just grabbing
you and maiming you,

that's kind of how
these guys feel

So they're traumatized,
they've got lacerations,

they're bleeding

You don't have
the mother's heat

You don't have
the mother's milk

You have a lot to overcome
to get them back to health,

but we just got to
work hard together

and see if we can make it live

[rabbit squeaking]

The biggest thing
is a puncture wound,

I want to make sure it's–

it's right on his arm, but I
don't think it's in his chest,

though

Poor thing

[rabbit squeaking]

OK, it sounds fine there

Maybe it's superficial

VERNARD HODGES: It
seem to be right

superficially on
the muscle there

NARRATOR: This bunny got
away with only a minor wound,

but there are other
concerns for the baby

VERNARD HODGES: Oh,
you get my warm gloves?

VET TECH: Yeah

VERNARD HODGES: Thank you

[rabbit squeaking]

I know!

I know!

You sound like Ferguson
when he hungry

[rabbit squeaking]

TERRENCE FERGUSON
I'm probably worse

than that when I'm hungry

VERNARD HODGES: All right, we're
going to improvise and make

you a warm bed right quick

I know, we got to warm you up

No matter what
species as mammals–

the babies– they
have to have warmth

Because they cannot
control their body temp,

so they need a source of heat

Once the temperature
gets to a certain level

and drops a few degrees,
they absolutely will not eat

Hey!

[rabbit squeaking]

You at natural at this
thing, look at that

That's what it was howling for!

Ah, get your blood sugar up

A little more!

Oh!

VERNARD HODGES:
Yum, yum, yum, yum,

yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum

Teamwork make the what?

Dream work

All right!

All right

Was able to get it to drink,
got his blood sugar up

OK

There is a superficial
wound, but we cleaned it,

and then we [inaudible] back

You know the hardest part?

Taking care of it

My daughter and I
are going to feed her

till she gets a little bigger

My daughter's like, I think
this is a gift from God

I've always wanted to
hold a little baby bunny

So feel the gloves?

See how they warm?

You can heat these
up, it'll eat

All right?

– Thank you so much
– No problem

Thank you so much

You take care
