Thank you again for your support. People that aren't animal/bunny lovers don't understand our grief. It's true that they are part of our family. We're picking him up this afternoon to bury him. <3

Oh gosh I'm really sorry. It's been an ordeal for you all. I hope his little bunny friend doesn't fret to much without him.
He's free of pain. Binky Free little Cooper!
Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.

I'm so sorry. Did the vet say what they think happened? I thought he was stable?

That's what confuses us too. The vet that I spoke with wasn't the same one I'd been dealing with previously in their group of doctors, so I'm not sure how familiar she was with Cooper's situation; but she just said that bunny's are fragile and things happen very quickly. What makes me really sad is, I don't think they ever syringe fed him, because that wasn't mentioned on my itemized bill, and I wonder if that's why he didn't make it. Needless to say, I won't be going back there if Alice (Coop's sister) ever has any issues.

It is possible that he may not have been able to have been syringe fed...especially not really knowing the extent of the jaw injury. I would ask the vet to show you where the jaw was fractured and maybe help you to understand why they were unable to syringe feed him.

The one thing I have found with all my vets for all my animals is they never invoice for food..... even special food.

Hmmm....I think my vet usually does, but maybe that's only for boarding. Besides well-checks and shots and boarding (dogs) we're never really there. Thanks Sarita. I may ask, but I may just leave it alone at this point. We buried Coop yesterday. The front desk people were very sweet, but the vets seem hurried or put out by my questions. I'll just ask my regular vet if they recommend someone else closer to me in case of another bunny emergency. Again, thank you all for your empathy and kindness.

I am so sorry! How painful for you all. I can't believe the vet acted put out by your questions especially after what you went through - that is inexcusable. I am so sorry you even had to deal with that. 

Coop is now free of any suffering - Binky Free Coop!

And hugs to you.
