I got home from my boring training course to find Izzy (the georgous harlequin lion-lop) hadn't eaten her breakfast.

I normally give her some excel and kale first thing and she was tucking into the kale when I left her but looked very unhappy at 4.30pm and hasn't eaten her excel and has refused everything so far.

I'm guessing I gave her too much kale at breakfast but didn't get much sleep so really can't remember much about this morning, except that she was bright when I left her.

She looks reasonably bright now she's had her metaclop jab and is indoors with a snugglesafe. I'm about to go looking for dandelions despite having a racking cough and I have a good feeling she will eat soon but vibes would be appreciated.

Thanks everybody.

I'm relieved to say she's just eaten some grass. She waiting 'til I felt sick with worry first though :roll:

I shall go out and pick some more now. I bet she'll get a taste for being a house rabbit while she's inside :?

I've been up every 2 hours trying to get her to eat and she's had hardly anything :cry::cry:

I did manage to get some water into her, which she lapped off the syringe. She looked okay when I made her run round too, so don't know what's ailing her.

I'm supposed to be on a training course, I'm tired beyond belief (had flu last week) and I've just been sick :cry::cry: I forced myself to have breakfast for energy though.

I'm going to get Izzy to FHB for 9.00 am. My training is in Harrogate so at least in the right town.

I hope she will be ok, she will be in good hands. My polo sometimes stops eating now and again for absolutely no reason at all. She is usually given a gut stimulant and pain relief at the vets and she is absolutely fine after than, and is usually eating within a few hours of coming back. Sending vibes your way x

Beautiful little Izzy died around lunchtime. I'd agreed for her to have emergency surgery as something was obviously badly wrong but she died before surgery could be carried out.

A post-mortem revealed that she had a twisted liver which ruptured blood vessels, so she effectively bleed to death. No known cause for this condition, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with her liver.

She was so bright and active at the weekend - I just can't believe a seemingly health and robust 9 month old can die so quickly :cry::cry::cry:

God I'm going to miss her she was so cheeky and full of life.

Thanks for all kind wishes and condolences.


Oh goodness I am so sorry. I really thought little Izzy would make it.

So did I! It just shows that you have to be vigilant and that stasis is often the symptoms you get when something more serious is amiss and not only a digestive upset! It should have been obvious really as her eating was perfect, she really wasn't a bunny likely to suffer a digestive upset, it HAD to be the obvious sign of something more going on, not that it would have made any difference, the damage wasn't repairable anyway. Ruth, the vet who was caring for her said she would probably not have been in much pain, just very subdued due to blood loss. That at least is a consolation.

I'm still in total shock that a bunny so vibrant can die so quickly and unexpectedly though. I never leave them alone all day except when I really can't avoid it ... that would be only two or three days a year, and the poor love had to get sick on a day when she was left all day, so unbelievably tragic. All the time I spent planning her future and she hasn't got any :cry::cry::cry: It's not even a year since I lost Scrat in similar circumstances, it was all too familiar, the verdict of having to go to emergency surgery etc. It's beyond me how anyone gets bunnies to old age, they just seem so fragile.:cry::cry::cry:

So sorry to hear this, we lost a guinea pig to a shunt, a problem where the liver doesn't get the right blood supply and eventually the animal's body outgrows the supply available. He was fine until he was about 4 months old and we realised he was not growing any more and he died. At least you know there is nothing you could have done and her time with you was good.

very sorry for your sudden loss. what a shock.

You did all you could for her Alison, and Izzy went to the bridge knowing love and having much more attention than she'd probably ever had. It's no consolation though, I know & it's so unfair that life is so short for some bunnies. :(:(
