Bella was hopping her way to bunny motherhood in June. However, when she went into labor, her family noticed that something wasn't quite right.
Bella was able to birth her first baby bunny with no problem, but her parents noticed she was struggling to deliver the second baby. After giving Bella a little bit of time, they decided that something was definitely wrong and made the decision to rush her to Red Hills Veterinary Hospital.
What Dr. Val discovered was that the first bouncing bunny was of a normal size; however, its brothers and sisters were much larger -- actually, the trio was double the size of the first bunny. Dr. Val would have to do her first ever C-section on a bunny.
Bella belongs to a large, healthy family of six who live off of one person's income. Bella's mom was worried she wouldn't be able to cover the costs of an emergency C-section for their cherished family pet. She reached out to Fur Kids Foundation, and were were glad to help with the bills.
Dr. Val and Bella's family are happy to report that Bella and her babies are all doing great. Here, Dr. Val is with Bella's bundle of joy – three healthy baby bunnies.
