View Full Version : Agi has gone to the bridge

24-09-2005, 09:06 PM
Very unexpectantly this afternoon i found Agi dead. I couldn't find anything wrong with her for about an hour. We then looked up her anal glands and there they were, maggots. Agi was fine thismorning and she has been fine all week but they had obviously got in where i couldn't see and she has passed away. I feel very guilty and upset with myself that we did not discover it until it was to late.

Goodnight my Agi XXX

Sending lots of healing hugs your way.

I really feel for you Phill, I'm sure you feel exactly the same way as I did with Nougat. Flystrike is a horrible thing and happens so fast.
Agi had a fantastic life with you and was happy and much loved.
Binky free Agi.

Really sorry Phill - It was difficult enough for us to keep on top with two bunnies (especially as they were both working there way through the bunny sickness almanac), with your gang it must be so much harder.

sweet dreams and run free little one.

Take care

oh Phil - I'm so sorry. Sending you best wishes. Try not to feel guilty and think of all the love that you gave Agi.

:( :( :(

24-09-2005, 10:57 PM
Phill, like I said to you tonight on the phone it isn't your fault, You are one of the best bunny mums I know and I can assure you there would have been no way I would let her come to you if you weren't. I certainly wouldn't want anyone else but you to look after mine.
Take care and lots of love
Kay & David.xx

Goodnight Agi it was so nice for me to be your mum for a short while and to know you had the best forever home and forever mum you could have ever had

Oh dearest lovely Phill, I am so very sorry and sorry to have missed this until now. You are tops when it comes to the bunnies, it must have been a terrible shock for you - heavens knows, how many of us would think to poke around in a bunnies gland area to see if there was anything going on???? I know it has never occurred to me especially since Jason told me the glands are best left alone, you shouldn't poke around in there! Beastly damned flies!!!!

You really must not blame yourself, I know it must be hard at the moment as you will be feeling so raw but think about the wonderful life that little Agi had with someone like you, that is so important and she will be binkying away at the Bridge now with all the other little spirit bunnies. Take care of yourself, you have had such a lot on your plate this week! Big hugs to you. xxxxxxx

Thanks Lizzie thanks Eve XX

Awww Phil - I'm so sorry to hear this about the lovely Agi - Flystrike is terrible and it happens soooooo quickly and as Lizzie said neither would I think to actually check the Gland area.

She had a lovely home with you so don't beat yourself up, you always do your best for your bunnies and the Flies this year have been terrible with it being humid for so long.

Sending you a hug gal.

Oh bless you phill, you must be devestated to lose another precious bunny. We never spotted Cleo had flystrike and i was checking and cleaning her daily, bl**dy flies they are pure evil :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
I felt so guilty when the vets told me about Cleo but there was nothing we could have done due to her other problems and i am 100% certain you did everything possible for Agi and have no reason to feel guilty at all. Think of the love and kindeness you showed her as that is what she will take to the bridge with her. She is there in some very good company so will be telling them how spoilt she was and what a wonderful place she lived in.

Take care, big hugs and lots of love to you xxxxxxxxxxx

i am so sorry to read about Agi - I know how upset you must be Phil and my heart goes out to you.

Agi is having a lovely time 'though and is now playing happily with all the other lovely buns at the Bridge - I am sure she has found your other bunnies and they will be comparing notes and gossip about you.
