Thread: Just lost my rabbit to EC 😭

  1. #1

    Default Just lost my rabbit to EC 😭

    Iím so heartbroken. Weíve just had to have our 4 year old Flopsy put to sleep just to EC. The vet said it was a severe infection and she didnít think she would recover even with treatment. What about if Iíve made the wrong decision to put her to sleep. I didnít want to leave her in pain. Sheís got a sister and sheís now all alone and I feel awful 😭 Iím treating her with panacur and I hope it doesnít affect her too. Has anyone been through this and does anyone have any advice on how to clean the hutch and look after our rabbit that is left? Thanks in advance x

    I am so sorry to hear your sad news Your remaining rabbit should cope ok on her own but in time you could look for a neutered male rabbit to bond with her. Introducing them must be on unfamiliar territory for your girl as they can be very territorial.
