Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
My name Is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special inerest in Small animals and exotics. What the Vet said is possible, but to me it actually sounds like your Rabbit may have died of a GI Stasis. GI Stasis is called the silent killer and can kill a Rabbit in the matter of hours. if the gut stops move, then that is the biggest problem and causes a painful death. This is some information on GI Stasis : http://www.bio.miami.edu/hare/ileus.html The GI Stasis is one of the most common causes of a Rabbit dying. If the Vet was not a specialist in Rabbits or exotics he may not know about GI Stasis. It is very unusual for a bacterial infection to cause a problem like sepsis, unless there has been some type of blockage or injury. In my experience I would suspect the Rabbit passed of a G I Staisi, which is called the Silent Killer. If I have addressed your concern, Please take a moment to Rate my service 5 Stars.
