Thread: Do I let him see his buddy?

    Default Do I let him see his buddy?

    Bailey was rushed into the vets yesterday and Brandi has been doing really well without him, Bailey passed away under anaesthetic today, should I let Brandi see him if he is doing so well without him?

    Its so sad to hear about Bailey

    I think it has to be your decision, some people think its really important, others don't. I'm glad Brandi is coping well

    In my experience a rabbit will more readily understand and accept the death of a partner once they have seen and had a chance to say goodbye/groom their body.

    I don't find it makes the surviving rabbit depressed or upset to do so - they will just deal with it in a matter of fact way if it's of little concern to them.


    I was so sorry to read about Bailey x

    We let him see him, he sat on the body and then hopped over and started grooming me for the first time ever!
