thanks but this was so inadequate--no suggestions at all how to care for the injured bunny while we searched for a vet--and you made no vet referral at all. site is a great idea but i would never recommend it and do not expect to be charged.

Hello,

I asked for a zip code to help locate a Vet for you. I did not have adequate information to assist you. Per above in Information request: Please supply a Zip code for your area and i will try to locate an Emergency Vet for you. There are many zipcodes in that area and need specific to narrow down a search and find you a Vet who could see the rabbit.
