    Thankyou so much for the information
    It's invaluable to people like me who don't know reams and reams about all the different illnesses bunnies can get... those who ignore your advice are silly.

    I had only heard of the intestinal one and its only young bunnys affected etc.

    imagine my horror when we have our newest rescue bunny get ill and have to be pts 3 weeks later after arriving. she seemed healthy and happy until a few days before she got ill..she had excess cecals but we thought it was due to a fight between her and merlin. she ended up with a haematoma on her tummy and we and the vets put it down to that.
    if the first two vets had taken her temp then theyd have known she was very ill. but by the time she was doing the excess cecals it was already too late.
    the hepatic version was present but the vets and the necropsy and bristol vets all agreed it was not the cause of her being uill and dying...no indeed she had an infection cos of the fibrin strands around her organs and probs with her kidneys etc...and when she was speyed her uterine organs were too small. she didnt grow in the few weeks here,whereas her suster did.
    it was pulmonary edema that killed her.

    i have been advised by my vet who contacted richard saunders at bristol that we needed to go a different way than septrin. john chitty also advised baycox but not till a test was done.
    bristol said no..the dose had to be given then a rest then the second dose and then a poo sample.

    both said the dosgae in FHBs book was incorrect.

    nothing could have been done for dazy-mae..it was a hidden collection of latent health probs that led to her demise...coccidia was just incedental the vet has said.

    its broken my heart losing dazy-mae......blubells not been the same and has got aggressive from fear. saw her sister being medicated so much then being pts...so medicating her makes her panic.

    i havent been thorough in the cleaning..its my fault..dealing with everything and my mums cancer...ive been so lax...
    i need to test my steam cleaner tomorrow.

    i have 3 free range bunnies..one of which poos anywhere and everywhere...one who only does it in the dog bed and litter tray. we have lino in the lounge....but ive not done enouh..just swept up and washed the floor with trigene....but need the steam.

    thank you for all the info and input....nothing would have made us suspect it in dazy-mae...not the fosterers..not the rescue..not the vet who speyed ehr...not the three vets i saw with her before the 4th vet said she was so full of fever she shouldnt have been alive.
