I got up i got her new water, she had none left in her bottle. I petted her and went back to bed! I got up went to work, i forgot to feed her, i didnt look if she had any hay left or food as i was in a rush, I came home fed the kits and then had to go for the job.

NOW I JUST GO TO CHECK ON HER AND SHES LAYING DOWN HAVING SEISURES shes down to bones, she wont eat i am crying I dont know what to do!!!! Shes dying! and i dont know how to help her!

oh my, have you brought the bunny into the house ? Do you think he is dehydrated ? if so...............

keep it warm, not too warm, try a box with some small hand towels in. Try to give it some water with one of those dripper thingys (oh heck I cant think of what they are called - dont matter anyway )

I dont know what to suggest about food at the moment, maybe water is what he needs now !

sending vibes

Keep us posted !

I'm so sorry. You need to get her to a rabbit-savvy vet ASAP. If it's going to be a little bit, syringe some water into her mouth to keep her hydrated. You can also grind up some of her pellets, mix them into a mush with water, and feed that with a syringe.

I hope she's okay.

Oh, honey...I'm sorry! Please find an emergency vet, ASAP, as when rabbits deteriorate, they can go quickly.

Please don't beat yourself up right now...now is the time to get her some help.

Bunny needs vet NOW - in the future, if you cannot be responsible for the feeding/care of a live pet, I advise you NOT to get one - sorry to be harsh!

My mom told us - if you want pets YOU be responsible for them - I learned very quickly how to take care of many kind of pets.

And for your bunny to be down to skin/bones, something tells me you don't take pets very seriously - rabbits don't loose weight that fast!

Normally I would agree...but I do know that Fran loves her pets. Bunny has gone to the Bridge, and she feels awful about it. She feels guilty, and irresponsible...let's just offer her some support, and a hug. Sometimes life gives us a bit more than we can handle at the moment, and we make mistakes...we ourselves are the only ones who truly know what we are and aren't accountable for, if we're being truly honest with ourselves.

Fran, my heart goes out to you...I'm very sorry to hear that your bunny has passed.

Kinda felt bad after reading the bunny died. You might love your animals, but she still showed a lot of irresponsibility. I hope after this she will be a better pet owner.

I'm sorry the bunny died - I raised dutch rabbits as a teenager

Sorry for taking so long to reply to this email everyone, Right after i posted this thread i called the vet in tears, she told me to bring her to her office asap. When i came back i posted the in the Crossing bridge section and my best friend came and tried to cheer me up.

As for your post GoldenKitty believe me i do take care of my pets. Before my parents moved back to italy, they stocked up on alot of things for the rabbit, Hay, bedding, toiletteries, and lots and lots of treats. (I will donate everything left of the food and things to someone who has rabbits) My parents were to take the rabbit with them to Italy in a couple of weeks as right now it was only a temporary solution because of all the moves. Just before christmas i went to the vet with the rabbit as she needs to go there every 5 weeks to get her teeth cut, I told the vet she is acting strange, being friendly, she has an abcess on her mouth and i wanted it cured. I wasnt able to go to the vet appointment that day, my father went. The vet didnt call me back that day, my dad told me the rabbit was fine and that she had to take her medication for the next three days.

This rabbit has been going to the vet every 4 to 6 weeks in the last 3 years! I had changed vets back in December and before today, NOBODY at the old vet office told me that house rabbits were to be vaccinated every 3 months against this disease. She had only been vaccinated ONCE!

She was fine last week! She was chubby, was happy and jumping on my bed and licking my face. I noticed that she had been increasing how much water she was drinking. Saturday i noticed that i could feel her back bones, but she was still chubby so i thought id give her more hay and some treats. She barely touched the hay but ate her treats.

When i think back now, since last sunday she has been quiet.

I would not starve my animals. My new vet told me it was not my fault that this happened, every second rabbit dies this way. Its called Mexotusis (sp?) i cant find the piece of paper she wrote it down for me. Its when a mosquito bites the rabbit and it gets infected. There is cure, but little hope. Unfortunately I got to the vet much too late. She told me that the rabbit doesnt seem like she suffered for very long.

It was hard to let her go, she had such beautiful fur, her coat was always so shiny and soft. I wish i could have her back here licking my face and giving me cuddles, its unfair that it took so long for us to bond. And now she had to leave. Maybe she knew her time was to go.

I guess you dont know me very well. I am very hurt from your post. I have suffered alot in the last couple of months, both financially and emotionally.
I dont think that i deserved something that harsh from you.

Now I have my kitties. I am scared that one day I will come home from work and see them laying there motionless having seizures. I hope they will never leave me for atleast many more years to come.

Fran - I am so sorry to hear of your loss . I know you're a responsible pet owner. I have read your posts about your babies and know you love them very much and would never intentionally harm or neglect any animal. I do think that GoldenKitty was a bit out of line, but in the same breath, I'm sure she's just a responsible pet owner as well who's immediate reaction was of great concern. You know that we are all here for you and we all know you well enough I think to know you are a caring person.
Rest in Peace little bunny. Your little one is now playing over the rainbow bridge with all the RB kitties. Just think of what fun she must be having with them all! Hopefully that will make you feel a little better.

Fran, please read my apology to you. I'm sorry about your bunny. I only read your post - none of your previous ones.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I lost a rabbit to myxymatosis when I was a child, they go downhill so very fast with it and there is nothing that can be done. We didn't know a vaccine had been developed, so he wasn't vaccinated. I am sorry for your loss.
