View Full Version : Poppy is Poorly: UD She's Gone :-(

11-04-2013, 07:39 PM
Has been a bit off her food but still eating last few days. Went to the vet yesterday and was given metaclop, she is is worse rather than any better today so she has been admitted :cry:

Vet said she is the third bunny he has had to admit, he says he thinks it's the time of year & the fact that moult can effect them. My estimated bill seems extortionate, I nearly had to be admitted myself when I saw it :shock::roll:

Flat seems really quiet despite still having the other two here, I hate this part of being a bunny owner so so much, she had been doing so well and had had the longest stretch away from the vets in a long time (about 4 months I think).

awww I know how you feel, my Pebbles has been admitted and I have 3 other buns but still miss him as he is my special bun :cry:

Big (((((((hug))))))))))

Thank you everyone, me too.

I hope Pebbles is better soon. I know what you mean, Poppy is my special bun, she's my first bun and was my only one for 3 years so she will always be my 'special' girl. I know you shouldn't have favourites but......:oops:

Sending tons of vibes for Poppy x

Thank you.

I hope your girls are back to their normal selves soon newbabybuns, it is indeed very strange, Poppy doesn't normally have eating issues unless it's her teeth which it doesn't seem to be-very odd!!

Thank you xxx

Have just spoken to vets & she's still not interested in food but taking syringe feeds. They have x-rayed and her lungs look not quite as they should and can be heard a bit more than they should be able to be (although she doesnt have breathing issues/cough/sneezes), vet also said she had 'pustules of puss in her eyes'???? I think thats what it was, slight info overload. Anyhow, they basically think she has an infection, perhaps pasturella related that has reared its head due to stress of some kind or sonething else. So they will flush her eyes and take swabs to find out which anti-biotic will be best to treat but at the same time as starting her on an anti-biotic whilst they wait for results.

Does anybody know if this all makes sense & sounds like the vets are following the right steps? I trust them but am so out of my depth, dont want to miss anything I could suggest.

So worried my policy wont cover, she's been in less than 24 hrs and my bill is already over 700.

12-04-2013, 12:24 PM
That makes sense to me. Don't know about the medical bit but to start her straight away with an antibiotic instead of waiting I would say is a lot better than waiting! They could give her a general antibiotic and then change it to a more specific one for that infection.

I don't know about costs as I got my insurance after Doughnut's illness but at least I'm covered for dental should I need it!

Lots of vibes for Poppy. Hopefully the antibiotic will kick in quick and she will start to feel better.

Thank you everyone. I have taken her to the crematorium, I didn't plan to look at her but my dad said she looked 'great' :roll: when he unwrapped her from the towel the vets had put her in so I had a look and she was very peaceful. I'm glad I did because I could give her a kiss and a stroke and say goodbye which is what I feel I missed out on and feel guilty for, in all honesty I thought she would come home, she has seemed much more poorly in the past that I thought it would be a case of anti-biotics and home again :cry:

The vet said she had actually seemed much brighter and the nurse had just written on her notes that she was hopping around before she suddenly died. I am pleased she didn't suffer because I always thought her dental issues would be her final battle which I imagine to be painful and perhaps drawn-out, as it happened she was only really poorly for 24hours, I just regret she wasn't at home and I didn't spend longer saying goodbye when they took her in, as I say, I just thought she'd be home in no time.

Sleep tight my little Poppy, you will be (and already are) very very missed. Granny will be most upset when I pick her up from the airport later.

13-04-2013, 03:39 PM
So sorry :(
