    I can understand why you feel like that, but your decision was what the majority of us would do. To lose a Doe to a routine spay is very, very rare. You could not possibly have known that your Doe would be one of the very few who do not recover. Your decision was based on the fact that you wanted to prevent a serious illness, it was a cruel twist of fate that led to the tragic outcome. Not something that you did wrong x

    But your decision was the right one. In my many years of rabbit keeping, losing a doe in a spay is very rare. I would do what you did every time and you did the best thing.

    I am so sorry she didn't make it. In these cases there is usually some underlying condition that's not known about at the time.

    Please try not to blame yourself xx

    I'm so sorry - this is so upsetting. Try to be kind to yourself and remember that you were doing your absolute best for her. As Jane said, it was a cruel twist of fate.

    You have to take decisions sometimes to do what you think is right, it's so rare this would happen, I'm sorry to read this thread. We all can understand how you are feeling xx

    I'm so sorry to hear this. You did everything right. A young bunny dying after a routine spay is all of our worst nightmare. It happens rarely but when it does, it is absolutely heart-breaking.

    I'm very sorry. you did all you could i am sure *hugs*

    as others said its incredibly rare to lose a doe to a spay, its likely and underlying condition. maybe it was her age as she was about 5, nobody knows. but you did do the correct thing to get her spayed. however sometimes it doesn't always work out.

    but i am very sorry, my best wishes to you and that you'll begin to heal soon.
