View Full Version : FOX ATTACK..U/D....Murray-Mint Has Gone.......

02-05-2006, 03:30 PM
A lady from my estate has brought her daughters Bunny Murray-Mint to me after he was attacked by a Fox :cry: He is a 12 week old cream coloured lop and I really doubt he will survive :cry: I have called Cristabel (Vet) and she has OK'd me to treat Murray-Mint as I think appropriate. A car journey to the surgery would kill this very sick bunny :cry:
So Murray-Mint is on a heat pad and has had 30mls warmed Hartmanns(sub/cut fluids) and 0.3mls Baytril. Cristabel said to give Metacam would just about guarantee kidney failure and opiate pain relief would cause respiratory arrest. She said to give Metacam IM if Murray-Mint becomes more responsive.
Murray-Mint has no obvious flesh wounds I can see.
Full examination would be too stressful and he'd probably die from shock :cry: :cry:
Poor, poor baby bunny :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
Sorry, but I HATE Foxes :evil: :evil:

Poor bunny, such a tragic end to his life. :cry:

Just a quick update.
Murray- Mints family have been to collect his little body :cry:
They are going to bury him in their back garden and have bought a rose bush to plant next to him.
The little girl is at school so Murray-Mints funeral will be this afternoon.
Apparently the little girl wants me to go.....
Oh dear....... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

He was in an open-top run in their back garden.
Sadly they didnt think Foxes were about during daylight................

I know how you feel. My rabbit was attacked by a ferret when he was two weeks old. I'm lucky that he was stronger.
