I took our bunny, Candy, to the vet Wednesday because she had been out of her cage all night but wouldn't come out from behind the end table..wouldn't eat or drink either. Just before I called the vet, I got her to move and realized she wasn't using her right front leg. So they had me drop her off so they could work her into the schedule. They called later that day to say they had her hopping around and while she was lame in that leg, it didn't appear to be fractured. They were giving her some fluids and antibiotics and pain medications and I could get her Thursday. Sounded fine. Vet calls 8am Thursday morning. He had come in at 11pm the night prior to check on Candy and a couple other patients and she seemed fine. When he got in at 5am Thursday morning, Candy had passed on. He didn't see it coming. Bunnies are fragile creatures, not unlike birds. It could have been infection. It could have been shock. We just don't know. She was only 6 months old and was just the sweetest thing. Not an attack bunny like some are...when you try to pick them up, some will bite and hiss. I actually felt sorry for the vet. He was so upset. It probably didn't help that they knew I was unwell. I bet he hated having to make that phone call. He said they would hold her there until I was feeling well enough to pick her up, if we wanted to bury her. We do. Candy was difficult child's bunny. She took such good care of her. I never had to remind her to clean the cage, give her food or check her water. I never had to prompt her to wash and cut fresh fruits and veggies for her. When bunny was roaming the house, difficult child always kept a close eye on her to make sure she wasn't getting into something she shouldn't be. She's taking it well, but I just wish that it were different for her.
