Spring, my sweet but giant bunny, suddenly passed away last night. Jerry called as I was getting off work (in STL) to say she was not eating, lethargic, and weak. By the time I got home she was already gone. We found that she had a very small (about the size of my pinky finger or less) hernia in her body wall. She could have lived her whole life with a hernia that small and never had any trouble. But unbelievably intestines went through the hole, got trapped, and died. I'm guessing the toxins released from the dying tissue and the pain is what caused the death. A dog or cat would not likely have died from this, so long as surgery was pursued. But rabbits are so fragile. It's hard to believe it all went downhill so fast. It's hard to know it was something that could have been fixed, if I'd known it was there to fix. It could have been there since she was born for all I know, a birth defect. She would have been 3 late this year.

Nicki, I'm so sorry. What a gorgeous bunny she was.
My condolences for your loss.She was beautiful and I know she will be deeply missed.
I'm very sorry to hear about Spring! She was a beautiful bunny and I am sure you will miss her very much.
Goodness, I'm so sorry- what a sad day for you :( She was absolutely beautiful- I'm sure she had 3 very happy years with you :) I'll be thinking about you!
I'm so sorry for you loss. I used to breed/show rabbits and I know how hard it is when they pass. They have a lot more personality than people give them credit for. She was beautiful.
Oh Nicki, Im so sorry. Diana
Very sad - I am so sorry for your loss of Spring.
I am sorry for your loss.
I'm sorry to hear about Spring. She was such a pretty girl. Rabbits and birds are delicate and don't give a lot of warning when things are gong badly. What a shame that it went unndiscovered.
I'm sorry Nicki. I love BUNNIES!!! She was very pretty! That was one LUCKY rabbit!
