    Default SOS - emergency - hyperventilating bunny/UD bunny doing better!

    Oh dear - I just found my one year old rex girl laying in her cage hyperventilating - she is laying completely streched out, eyes almost closed and her heart is racing... her body is shaking from the heavy breathing!

    She ate an hour ago with good apetite - what could this be? Please help?!??

    Oh my goodness, I have never heard if this? Is she hot at all? Has something frightened her? Could she be having some sort of panic attack? I am not sure if bunnies have those. Bless her. Healing vibes coming your way.

    My best friend. Princess, I love you x

    Just to say I've linked this thread to general chat to see if anyone there can help.

    I'm sorry I don't really know what to advise other than trying to help calm her down - does she like being stroked? Sounds silly but maybe it'll soothe her a little? Can you see anything stuck in her mouth?

    Called emergency vet who told us to check her temperature - while doing so bunny suddently came to life!!!

    So jumped up and is now acting like normal (eating, cleaning herself)!?!

    Om my god she scared me!!! I really thought I was going to loose her

    She was laying down, shaking and panting 10 min ago... then she got up and acted normal.. now she is back to laying down (although breathing more normal...). Not sure what is going on...

    Will spend night with her.

    Any idea what could have cause this?

    in that link i put in, someones rabbit had a shock after a bookcase fell down or something and sounded in a similar state to your bun, maybe she had a fright?

    are her ears hot? if they are, try and cool her down. i'd suggest a vet check up as soon as you can to check her over and make sure it's not underlying thing. keep an eye on her food and water intake aswell as her poops and pees.

    hope she's okay x

    It does sound like she's had a fright of some sort. Glad she's come round now, good idea to stay with her tonight I think. That must've been so scary to see! Let us know how she is in the morning.
