Finnegan and Muffin

August 2017

We’re glad to have you part of the Sherwood family, Finnegan and Muffin!

“Finnegan and Muffin are our bonded pair. We adopted them in November 2015 almost two months after our first bunny died. They were picked by our first bunny about 15 months before his death. They are special to us, because they spent nearly five years at the sanctuary and now accept us and show us affection. They are enjoying life as pampered house rabbits…

I really like the fresh smell of the Sherwood pellets. Both bunnies are waiting for them every morning and eat them enthusiastically. The pellets look greener than what we fed before. Finnegan, especially, seems to have softer fur than on the other pellets. Since both are six years old, I was surprised that his fur felt softer, since he is getting older. Both are fixed, so their urine and poop didn’t smell much at all. Muffin seems to have lost some weight. She was overweight, when we adopted them. Our vet suggested decreasing the pellet intake and she did lose over a pound from less pellets and more exercise. Muffin looks like she has slimmed somewhat more since the switch to Sherwood pellets. Finnegan has survived three episodes of stasis and this was the reason behind our switch. I wanted him to have the best nutrition possible. There is a suspicion that Finnegan gets blockages from grooming himself and Muffin during molting. Finnegan doesn’t need to lose anymore weight. Each episode has seen a loss of at least one tenth of a pound. Thank you to David for answering my questions about Finnegan and his health.”

Ollie

July 2017

We’re glad to have you part of the Sherwood family, Ollie!

“Ollie was adopted 2 months ago. He is 5 months old and he’s a bundle of joy. Ollie came to us with dire circumstances. He was previously used as “live bait” to train a future hunting dog. Because of this, he was extremely malnourished and withdrawn from human interaction. Eventually, he was released into the surrounding neighborhood but returned because he was unfamiliar of his surroundings. An acquaintance of Ollie’s previous owner caught Ollie and sought a home for him. She felt sorry for him and wanted him to have a good home. Thus he miraculously ended up in my arms. We’ve spent the last month introducing him to our family. He was such a tiny little thing– mainly skin, fur, and bones. Thanks to Sherwood Pellets (it’s our family favorite) and plenty of hay, love, and patience, he finally met his goal with steady weight gain. His fur used to be matted and greasy and stuck together in clumps, but now it has a beautiful, sleek, and natural shine. He is a complete sweetheart, and he finally understands what it’s like to be cared for in a nurturing home filled with love.”

Savannah

June 2017

We’re glad to have you part of the Sherwood family, Savannah!

“This is Savi (Savannah). She’s one of your biggest yet smallest fans. Sherwood Pet Health has very literally saved her life. Lionheads, like many other small bunnies, are prone to malocclusions. Savi’s case was severe, resulting in really wacky tooth growth and lots of abscesses. Sadly, she has lost all her teeth and most of her jaw, but she is thriving on Sherwood pellets and immune support tablets, and SARx has been critical to her recovery from surgery. Her vet is thrilled with her health, and is as much a fan of Sherwood as Savi and I are!”

Cash

APRIL 2017

We’re glad to have you part of the Sherwood family, Cash!

“Please meet Cash, named after the Man in Black himself (hello I’m Johnny Cash). Cash is an approximately four-year-old Mini-Rex who is defines the layback bunny lifestyle. Cash came to us after Frankie, our first bunny, selected him as her “hus-bun” at a bunny speed-dating event three years ago. Cash loves the finer things in life, like a soft bed to sleep in, hay imported from California, fresh veggies from our garden, and raisins. Cash also loves to have his soft Rex fur stroked and will often run across the room (and underneath our feet) when he wants attention. We also discovered that Cash has a bit of a sensitive stomach but after switching to Sherwood Adult Rabbit pellets and a daily maintenance dose of digestives, he’s perkier than ever and not as prone to GI stasis.”

Stormy Kisses

MARCH 2017

“We have a mixed breed bunny that a lady told us was going to die. I said I’ll take her. She was so very tiny and I was worried. But, now she’s huge! Bigger than our dog! I think she’s part giant rabbit. Her name is Stormy Kisses. We named her that because she literally licks everyone like mad. More than our dog does. She’s so loving and I believe she Kisses everyone so much is because she knows we saved her and gave her a loving forever home. She eats her Sherwood pellets daily and she gets dried mango or banana slices as a treat.”
