      Hello All,

      At the end of September, we said goodbye to our little boy Dodge. He was just over two years old at the time. He had been battling an abscess on his jaw. After three surgeries, and losing his two bottom teeth, we made the decision to let him go. The abscess had come back and he was struggling to adjust to eating again- as well as, all the pain he was in. Anyway, a few weeks after we knew we needed another little man in our lives to fill the void. And along came Moggy. We have had him for almost a month, and we find our selves worrying about whether or not it will happen again. For anyone that has lost their rabbit in a similar way or through unforeseen illness, does it get easier? Do the fears eventually slip into the background?

      I’m sorry you lost him. My buns have had serious health issues over the past year. One of mine lost his life to a summer long gi problem and gi surgery. I have 3 others. I know during the whole summer and a month after I lost him, I was so worried my others would get sick too, but they didn’t. After time passes and you work or go to school, you forget to think about that and soon enough Itl be a year or so and you wouldn’t have thought of it. Having a bunny means they can get sick at anytime, and that’s the depressing part.
      You won’t be thinking it forever, you’ll eveneutally forget to think about it, so try not to worry so much or you might be putting you and him in a self self fulfilling prophecy.

      Sorry about your little Dodge. I can’t imagine how hard that is.

      For your question, I think it depends on a lot of factors. If you have a chronically ill bunny, it’s definitely a thought that goes through your head. I have two boys, Asriel and Bombur. Asriel is as healthy as an ox. He’s never had health issues, so I never really wonder if I’m going to find him dead. Bombur on the other hand, I worry daily. He’s had several battles with stasis, and he has complications due to EC, so I’m always preparing myself when I get home from work. I’m always wondering if this is the day I’m going to come home and he’s not with me anymore.

      As Bunny House has said, bunnies can get sick very easily, so there’s always some degree of worrying.

      I also have that fear. I want another bun but after losing two I’m terrified of it happening again. Anything can happen even to perfectly healthy bunnies but sometimes it’s the sick buns that live long.

      Anyways I hope you are enjoying little Moggy ?

      I know what u mean. I lost Merlin and Lancelot to ec. Since they were both bonded to Guin, and she is now living with Morgana and Avalon, I worry that she is a carrier and whoever she lives with will get sick and die. When we lose a pet that we r so attached to, it is understandable that we worry about it happening again.
