We noticed Priscilla’s right eye was red around the edges and decided to take her to a veterinarian who recently opened up a new practice. We first heard about Dr. Joseph Martinez in a TV news story about a pregnant rabbit who had been shot in a park in Richmond, BC, Canada. He saved her life and she delivered a healthy litter of baby bunnies, but her shattered leg had to be amputated. There is a YouTube video about it down below. We met Dr. Martinez last fall at Vancouver Rabbit Rescue’s annual Rabbit Fest. He generously volunteered to give free health check-ups to the rabbits people brought in.
There are not a lot of rabbit savvy vets in the greater Vancouver area, so we were very happy to know about Dr. Martinez. It is obvious he not only knows a whole lot about rabbits and how to keep them healthy, but also he is a man who truly enjoys rabbits and likes to spend time with them.
