I really appreciate you showing this,and how you took the time to show it. I will be doing this for my little Bunny "Molly" and you made me feel less nervous! Thank you!

Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to make this video to help others. I have been nervous all week about giving my bunny fluids because I was afraid I would forget the steps but I'm going to use your video to help guide me through it. Thank you wonderful lady!

Thank you! Thank you! I've looked at so many videos for administering fluids. Couldn't find one on filling drip chamber or second option for where to give. I have a dwarf rabbit and that "tent" was very hard to find. Sunny & I thank you again.
