PostSubject: Rabbits   Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:11 pm

Got a bit of a shock tonight when I went to feed my rabbits. They were both dead!!

They were fine when I went to work this morning. There's not a mark on either of them & the cage is intact.

I know rabbits have a bit of a reputation for dying suddenly & inexplicably but both of them? :san56:

The Rex was 7 and the Dwarf Netherland was only about 3.

I've been racking my brains trying to think what I've done differently, whether anything had changed but it hadn't.

I just don't understand it.

Have also been on Google Fazz & wondering about VHD now.
Paula posted a link into my post on FB about this saying it had been diagnosed in our area.

Apparently a lot of VHD cases aren't recorded as death is often very sudden with no apparent symptoms.

Sorry to hear this :love:
I used to show and breed rabbits too, I only have 2 now. Very unusual for 2 to die suddenly. I know bloody flystrike is rife at the moment due to the warm weather, but then you would see damage to their behinds and of course maggots.

Could very well be VHD, Myxi would show symptoms.

I know its not flystrike cos I always checked them both. They were both lovely, particularly the Rex. Stroking his fur was very therapeutic. :love:

Yeah my brother used to walk his rabbit on a cat harness when he was little. Until the rabbit gnawed through it of course!!

Dont think I'll be getting anymore rabbits. Wouldn't mind a rat though

Chloe has had a couple of rats and they were both brilliant pets. Clean, intelligent & very affectionate. Plus I love to see them sitting nibbling at a grape or peice of apple held in their little paws. Sooo cute :love:
