      She was only 10 months old. I’m beyond heartbroken. The last month she had been getting on and off sick, almost went into stasis twice and her condition kept going up and down. We spent weeks with the vets, having scans, x-rays, everything . Still couldn’t find the answer, so treated symptoms each time and brought her home. Just 5 days ago she was looking great, hopping around my room and sleeping on my chest. We had such a close and magical bond I couldn’t even begin to surprise. A few days ago she started to get gassy and uncomfortable again. I took her back in and they said she wasn’t looking good. They decided to keep her in overnight and in the morning they rang me to say that they finally figured out the problem  after consulting a specialist and she wasn’t going to make it. She had a very rare complication as a result of her spay a few months ago – gut adhesion. So after all this time it was a complication from her say which was making her sick. I rushed to the vets and held her for the last time. She looked so sick and weak, the vet said the likelihood of operating on her guts being successful was so slim that it wouldn’t be worth the risk. So I had no choice but to PTS.

      I lost my father as a child and so have been through grief before, but this, feels so different. I feel so empty inside and her miss her so much. I can’t stay in my room, it feels so empty without her bouncing around. The last night she was sick, she came and slept in bed with me right by my head. My poor baby. I feel so powerless, I tried everything I could to save her but there was nothing I could do.  I had her spayed thinking it would protect her from cancer in the future, but due to a cruel twist of fate and only what the vets could describe as  “Terrible bad luck” she is gone.

       

      My bunny and her love got me through this awful and difficult past year. Last night I fell asleep alone and prayed I wouldn’t wake up. I dreamed she was alive and recovering, and woke up to the harsh reality she is truly gone today. I thought we had her whole life ahead of us together, and now it has been so cruelly cut short. I have no idea how I’ll make it through this.

      I’m so sorry for your loss. 🙁 I have heard of gut adhesion happening before as a rare side effect. It is so hard to lose an animal due to spay/neuter or any other medical procedure. You did do the right thing by deciding to spay, as cancer is almost a certainty, so try not to second guess yourself. I agree with the vets that it was very bad luck. You did the best you could for her by trying to get at the cause of the problem, and she’s not in pain anymore.

      Just take it one day at a time, it will get easier. Perhaps when she came and slept near you, that was her way of saying goodbye.

      You might like to post more happy memories and photos of her here, sometimes people find that helps them. You are not alone, most/all of us here have experienced at least one loss of a beloved bunny, so we help each other get through it.

      I am so very sorry for your loss.

      You did what a conscientious and loving bun owner will do for a girl bun. You did it to keep her safe and healthy. I’m so very sorry it didnt work as planned. You are not to blame in any way.

      I’m glad your bun got to have you as her human. So many animals -and humans, too -will never know love. Your bun got to know what it means to be important and loved.

      As Dana says, you are so welcome to post pictures or other memories of your bun here. You will probably cry when you look at old pics of her- but those tears will be good and healing tears.

      I have lost rabbits and dogs. I miss them profoundly, yet I can’t help but smile when I think about them now, because they made my life so much better.

      Binky free, little girl bun. 💗
