Bunnies + Benadryl = Chin Hair.

Mr. Snarkolepsy and I thought we were making good progress with Paisleys' balding problem. We started her on baby benadryl, and changed laundry detergents.

Even though I have a hard time accepting she can be allergic to detergent.

See.. even her chin hair was starting to grow back.

So, we began to think maybe she was having an allergic reaction the whole time, and not an OCD problem. Kind of a bummer, because rabbit allergies are not something I would have thought could be a problem.

Her ear was even starting to look better. Until last night.

We think she might be having a reaction to Vaseline.

Her ear was looking fabulous and her hair was growing back. But she was starting to get a little dry scaly-ness. So, two nights ago I put a little Vaseline on her ear to relieve the dryness. All of a sudden last night her ear looks more inflamed than ever, and she's all swollen up. Back to square one.

Now I don't know what to put on the ear, because she tolerated Vaseline really well in the beginning. Now, not so much.


  1. Poor Bunny!
    I'm telling you, if you can't find that Gerber stuff, Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme.

    PS. Have you seen that redonkulous cat and bunnies video on Cute Overload?

  2. You know, my husband is allergic to bunnies. Maybe your bunny is allergic to you!

    Poor bunny

  3. EvilHR - Hey - I wonder if bunnies can be allergic to humans...

    MDG - Thanks for the recommend, but it has vitE.

    I did run over the cute overload though. That is crazy cute. Those cats always seem like they want to eat the bunnies. A little like those old tweety bird cartoons.

  4. Hmmm.... No Vitamin E.
    How about

    And look! has the Gerber stuff on sale!

    Or, ooohh...vanilla scented, might have to get this for Sarge.

    PS. I saw the commercial with the swimming bunny. I think it was for some kind of travel insurance. Unfortunatley Piko was asleep.

  5. Didn't you say petrolium products were a problem? Vasoline IS a petrolium product...
    I'd use any good moisturizer, like a goat's milk hand lotion, rather than the Vasoline.
