I love bunnies, i have two (Bax and Paco).
2 weeks ago i brought home another baby bunny, but he did not eat, drink or poop. We drove him to the vet the next morning where he died, because his hair got stuck in his intestines, which caused a lot of pain and trouble breathing. We didn’t know he was sick when we got him and we were devastated when he died :(
to anyone who owns a bunny: BE CAUTIOUS! as soon as they stop eating it’s an emergency. Drive him/her to the vet and hope for the best, because bunnies are very unpredictable and you can never know when there’s something wrong with them. I have a new bunny now, healthy and lively Paco.❤
Gi stasis is definitely a medical emergency for bunnies. I've nursed rabbits through it a number of times, but I've also had two rabbits die to it despite vet treatment. It's important to both treat their pain and determine the underlying cause of the gi stasis.

I'm so sorry for your loss! Binky free, little one.
