I have had 2 Buns who have had CVAs. I dont think there is a specific breed tendancy towards them unlike the Lionhead Seizure issue.
How did you Buns CVA present ?

I have only experienced a stroke in my old bunny Joe Joe.He was ten and a half.When I came down one morning he was completely paralised down one side. I was so upset I got my OH Andy to take him to the vet.The vet said nothing could be done for him so he was PTS.

i may be taking on a young rabbit who suffered a stroke at the age of 9 wks. i was just after some information on possibal causes (and the chances of a reoccurance) as well as how best to care for him befor i and my partner agree to take him on.

Well done for researching. It is best to understand if they have special needs and if you would be able to cope. Good luck if you feel that it is right.
