I lost the first rabbit a week ago. She was 71/2 and had a tumor on her chest that I had taken off last year but it came right back. So her death was sad but not such a surprise.
My other rabbit Bartley was a 4 year old flemmish giant and he became sad at the loss of the first rabbit and wouldn't eat. I made the mistake of giving him 2 small strawberries And banana to cheer him up and get him to eat. One or all of these things caused him to get GI STATIS So I took him to UC Davis. After a lot of money they sent me home with pain meds and emergency food we were not able to get much food in him. But I thought he was making improvement. But with in a few hours he died also. I am absolutely devastated. So this is a warning if your rabbit stops eating do something right way. Don't give them fruit it messes them up if they haven't had regular food and hay too. I hope this story helps others.
