Thank you

Libby became acutely unwell with what appears to be severe gastrointestinal pain. Although she is not in gut stasis. At the moment she is being treated symptomatically and she is more stable now.

It has all come as a huge shock as the onset was so rapid and the symptoms so severe :cry:

I know that for a Giant she is now considered to be 'elderly', she will be 7 later this year. But it is still awful to think of a time when my big gentle girl will no longer be here :cry:

Thank you everyone

We have no idea as to the cause of Big Libby's illness today. But thankfully she is doing quite a lot better now

When it started I found her lying down covered in wee, breathing VERY fast and with her head stuck up in the air. She had eaten and poo'd LOADS less than an hour prior to me finding her so ill. The pain was located around her distal colon.

Anyway, at the moment she is doing OK but I dare not be too optimistic for fear of tempting fate

Roly Poly
21-03-2013, 06:04 PM
So pleased to hear a more positive update - hope she continues to improve, please give her a gentle noserub from me xxx

On examination this morning I have found a tumour in her abdominal cavity :cry: it appears to be located at the top of her bladder

She is more comfortable within herself, although she is still obviously not feeling well. She is eating, but not as enthusiatiscally as usual and she is very lethargic

Very much like how Sir Victor was in his final days.............. :cry:

We are seeing C again this morning, we will NOT be putting Big Libby through abdominal surgery

Surgery is not an option as Libby has some heart irregularities and she is almost 7 years of age. 7 is old for a Giant

Because of the location of the mass surgery would be major and even if she survived the GA she would suffer a lot of post operative distress.

I want her to remain with us, of course I do. But not at the cost of her welfare. I dont want to put her through a huge ordeal at her stage in life with her additional complications.

This has nothing to do with money and everything to do with Libby's welfare

Jane you do not have to justify your decision, ( I understand why you feel you have to:( ) Many humans in similar situation would choose for themselves not to have surgery.
I know that you will do what is right for Big Libby and it is good that you have such a good vet to care for your rabbits.

Those are all very good reasons to choose the option you have.
I had a very good dog some years ago who was still full of pee and vinegar all the way up to the end, but she had an inoperable mass in her lower bowel. It was beginning to cause her difficulty when toileting so we had to make a difficult decision. Hardest thing I've ever had to do, but I knew-after having had cancer treatment myself-that at her advanced age I didn't want to put her through what I went through.
I could have done and she'd have had a real struggle for who knows how long?

Loved her too much for that.
