Sterling Wentworth.jpg

Sterling is a 4-year-old Blue Rex bunny.  His Mom adopted him 3 years ago. Two weeks ago she noticed his eyelid was red and took him to a local vet, who put him on an antibiotic. Unfortunately, Sterling's eye is getting much worse, and he needs surgery as soon as possible.  Yesterday, her regular vet put him on pain meds to help with the pain. The longer Sterling waits for surgery, the worse his eye will get.  His eye could pop out or he could go blind; and there is the possibility of systemic infection.  We really need to get this poor bunny into surgery ASAP.

Here is what Sterling's Mom has to say:  "I adopted Sterling 3 years ago, he is a Blue Rex and is is super sweet. He has a mate that adores him, her name is Tribble. I love them very much and it is breaking my heart to not have the funds to give Sterling the care he needs."

If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation – note for Sterling Wentworth.  If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate Sterling's name when making your donation.
 
Can you help us help Sterling?

Thank you!

Rabbits are VERY good at hiding their pain. The thing with rabbits is that they can deteriorate rapidly. IF this infection is not taken care of NOW, or he will probably need an enucleation. Rabbits do very well with only one eye but if the infection is not controlled, it could also lead to septicemia. 

I am so sorry I can't help out financially but I will pray and help spread the word. Sharma is a great bunny mom and loves Sterling so much.

Please help. Look in your pockets, your couch, etc. No amount is too small. Please help him before it's too late :bunny:

Sterling's mate Tribble is staying by his side and comforting him.. Tribble is a very relaxed bunny so I took her to the vet with Sterling yesterday for support and she was so good at  keeping  him calm!

I told Sterling and Tribble how nice people were by donating for his surgery ;-)  Don't think he understood tho.  But I do, and thanks so very much!
