Curly was found as a stray in Greenwood, very skinny and with eye infection. She was turned into an Indiana shelter, who helped get her weight back up and treated her eyes. But Curly was kind of stuck at the shelter... they didn't have a spay/neuter connection, and Curly was getting cranky about being there. IHRS came in to take Curly to foster care after she'd been at the shelter a couple of months. One thing we discovered while at the shelter: Curly has terribly maloccluded incisors! One of her top teeth curled right out of her mouth, and the others were really wonky. Since rabbits' teeth grow continuously, this condition will only get worse and will lead to starvation.

Ms. Curly received a prompt dental exam from an experienced rabbit veterinarian. She has now had two dental surgeries with multiple extractions and more are likely. Unfortunately, Curly's cheek teeth (molars) are even worse than her incisors. She has had a CT scan to help the vet perform the dental surgeries with the best information possible.

Once Curly is stable with her dental woes (which may also fix her ongoing eye discharge and grooming issues), she will be available for adoption. She has an unknown future with her teeth and therefore would need a very special adopter with access to a great rabbit vet with dental skill. We are supporting Curly with special foods and antibiotics for her dental infections... she's having a hard time eating.

Curly is curious and thankful for food and attention. She could use your well wishes and your financial support as she recovers! She has a great spirit and says to keep the apple-banana flavored Critical Care coming!
