    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    Thank you, @Cara . I am so sorry for the loss of Walter. The guilt feelings are abating for me. I am slowly realizing that I did all I could do for her. Sadness remains, of course, but is easing a bit. And yes, we talk about her often and remember her antics with a smile. I wish you peace...

    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    @MyMelody I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your baby! I know exactly how you feel. I keep seeing Dimi everywhere- I actually go into check on her, and remember that she's not there anymore. Thank you for your message, I appreciate it. I know for a fact that your rabbit and mine would not...

    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    I'm so sorry, Orrin, for your loss. Just when I think I'm getting a bit better, it all hits me again. I miss her so very much.

    We had to let Cinder go

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I just lost mine as well. They are just such fragile animals😔😔

    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    Thank you all so much❤! Yes, I agree with @DelawareRunner , bunnies are very special. I am 53 and have lost many pets- this one was the WORST. She feels like my little child. Maybe it's because they are so innocent and require so much attention. Also with her needing the special medical...

    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    Thank you both, Apollo's Slave and CrazyChickenGirl. I knew only rabbit people would understand how I feel! I'm sorry about your rabbit passing from stasis as well. They are such fragile animals. We buried her in the backyard, and I found a stone Zen bunny (with lop ears!) statue to put on...

    My Dimi has passed, and I am not coping well

    My 9yr old lop passed last Wed. I have been crying off and on since then, and having trouble coping. This is a bit long, but I've been wanting to write this out, and this is the first day I felt I could do it. Dimi has had lifelong stasis issues, and I've been able to pull her out of stasis...

    Recovery from a blockage

    Watermelons, any advice on how to get my rabbit to eat the petromalt? I've tried putting a dab on her pellets and she won't eat the petromalt or pellets that are touched by it.

    Recovery from a blockage

    I just want to comment on the Laxatone issue. I also was under the impression that Laxatone or any other form of hairball medicine was BAD for rabbits, and not helpful with GI stasis. I had read an article by Dana Krempels basically stating this. She says since it's mineral oil based, it can...

    Accidently fed spoiled canned pumpkin??

    Thank you both for the responses. I know food poisoning can present differently, and it was difficult to find info online. I did find references to mouldy hay causing liver damage over time as well as other damage. I also found a bit on salmonella. I'm happy to report that Dimi was perky as...

    Recovery from a blockage

    My rabbit Dimi has been through GI stasis several times, unfortunately. I think it's very good that you're getting her to eat greens. Make sure they are nice and wet when you feed them as she will get more water that way. My Dimi does not drink much water, so when she is having a problem, I...

    Accidently fed spoiled canned pumpkin??

    Well, my husband got Dimi's veg/pumpkin plate ready this morning and tonight. She ate all of her food this morning, but didn't go for the pumpkin tonight which is rare. I smelled it, and sure enough, it had spoiled in the refrigerator. We keep a tupperware container of it after we open it...

    Thought all was ok, but Dimi lying in a weird position, tail up

    Thank you again, JBun. I had her in on the bed again tonight, and she was very affectionate and cuddled with me like old times. When I pet gently down her rump with my hand encircling it, and get near the tail region, she jumps away. So perhaps something in this area- like hip area. I talked...

    Thought all was ok, but Dimi lying in a weird position, tail up

    Thank you JBun. She has an appt tomorrow at 8am. Her regular rabbit vet is currently on vacation, but they say that all the vets in the practice see rabbits. I am nervous about her being seen by a regular vet, but do not know what else to do. I did call the super rabbit specialist out of...

    Mucus and soft stool. Should I be worried?

    She needs to see a rabbit savy vet. There are many things that could be going on... diet, infection. Do you give her any fruit or wheat based treats? If so, cut back on those. If the only thing she eats is the alfalfa pellets and hay, I would back off a bit on the pellets, and make sure she...

    Recovering from Stasis

    When Dimi had her first stasis, they did an x ray. They said that if there was a large impaction or "bolus" that the only thing to do would be surgery, and that was not very successful. I was told that giving motility drugs with an impaction was not a good idea. Fortunately, she had not...

    So sorry for your loss....

    Thought all was ok, but Dimi lying in a weird position, tail up

    OK... so all was well the last few days since hubby dropped Dimi, and she was acting aggressive. She has been back to normal. But tonight, she was being aggressive with me again, which is very unusual behavior for her (she was spayed 1.5yr ago). While out tonight in the living room, she laid...
