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!
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.
