I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you're okay and that you can get through this all. I've never lost one of my buns and I can't even imagine it. Just know you have the whole BB community to help you through this. <3 Others on here for sure have been through this and can help with the moving on process.

I'm so sorry.  He is free now of any pain and discomfort, but I know for you, the pain and heart break will linger on.  I am sorry that the vet was not helpful.  Sounds like your bunny was very weak and who knows if he would have even survived the 1 1/2 hour car ride. Such a very sad situation. I know you are in full grieve mode and are heartbroken, I am so sorry for the loss.  

 I know that with my very first bunny, I learned a lot through the loss, and used the pain to help educate others due to what I had been through.  I know you are not ready for that now as you need time to grieve. but in the future you may be able to . For example, before the loss of my first bunny, I didn't realize how quickly a seemingly healthy bunny could decline soooo quickly nor did I understand fully what were the very subtle signs to look for until it was too late. 

 It also has been extremely difficult financially for many people --those who got a bunny when they had money, but then something happened - job loss, health issue, whatever, cleaned out any savings they hadt.   But helping to educate and prepare people considering a bunny about the costs can be very beneficial to those are are already financially tight. 

 I ended up using what happened to my bunny to try and prevent it for others, and that at least provides me some comfort regarding the loss.

Sending huge hugs and healing vibes.

I'm holding off on getting another Bun until I have another job. Things did get very tight here as I'd lost my job to the economy. I also just lost my bachelors degree attempt 5 days ago cuz the loans ran out fully and I can't go back til I pay off the 57k I owe which will never happen so I gotta pay all that back and get zero degree for the 2 years I've spent so far. So I've been dealing with that and now my bun died today. It's a lot to handle at once.

I'm so sorry! I cried while reading your story ;(
You know it sounded just about the same condition Panda was in, when he passed. I aswell called vets but all were closed, it was a Saturday..
Panda couldn't move, wobbly legs.
I read more about his condition and am wondering if Paralysis and hind limb weakness was it.
Hmm.. and Baylsascaris (Roundworm transmitted by feces) is something to wonder about.
Whatever happened to your baby, Its so sad
I am extremely sorry

Thank you, Pandorachik. <3 I hated how helpless I felt. I take comfort knowing he slept by me on his own accord last night and then today came up by me to pass on. I was his comfort even then and that means so so so much.

My sympathies to you, chromashadows. My bunny passed on several months ago so I know how awful you must be feeling. I'm sure you gave him a good life during the time you spent together. I also have a ton of student debt so you're not alone with that either. <>

I am so sorry about your bunny and your situation!

It probably doesnt matter to you now but I thought I would share my experience. I live in a small town, and there is a 24hr emergency animal clinic here. They are expensive and require to pay upfront. The minimal cost is $100 just for an appointment. But they offer application for credit with some company that can be filled out right there even at nighttime. I had to use their clinic twice for emergencies. Ended up paying $100 for a visit when our bunny got attacked by a dog. Maybe there is a clinic like that where you live. Just good to know the resources for the future.

To piggyback off what LittleDoll was saying -- when we took our bun to the vet for his hurt foot (it was also an emergency service but we found out our actual normal vet takes it too) they had an application for a credit card specifically for your animals. My boyfriend did the application on his phone and was approved for $700 on the spot. So we used that for the visit that day. It's a great card to have for emergencies with your little guy! It's my boyfriends card -- so if you're interested in the name, I'll get it from him later when he gets home!

Another good thing to do is to open a savings account for emergencies, and put money into it every paycheck, even if its only $5. And don't spend it unless it is an actual emergency, like a needed vet visit, or the like. Vet care MUST be provided for your animals, as they can't go to the doctor on their own, and depend on us to take them. It's the law in many places, as well. So save up so you don;'t have this kind of tragedy happen again.

It's called CareCredit --- here's the link for it : http://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/

Hope this helps and I hope you can get another bun soon! <3

I have Care Credit also. It helped tremendously when I had both my boys neutered at the same time and it was a little over $400! I like it because if I pay it off within 6 months, it's interest free. It's also comforting to know that its there in case of emergencies. I am not really happy using a credit card, though, so my plan is to do what MonkeyBun said and start putting away a little each paycheck for this type of thing. That's always the best way to go, if possible.

Very sad to read this.
I lost my previous bunny Tussi before xmas last year and I was shattered.
I can imagine how you feel.

If you want I can print a picture for you to remember your fuzzbutt by.
I am a photo-nut so I got some gear, and I can do up to 24" by 36" and I can also do it on canvas.
Send me a message if you want me to print something.

I just wish I could do more.

Oh such a sad story I just lost both my boys and while I have read everything I can find on bunnies, I was not prepared for how quickly something can happen. My baby was at the vet's office when he got sick and despite their best efforts, he died within minutes These are fragile little creatures that we love. I'm so sorry for your loss
