Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you. I am sorry for the loss. This is possibly a protozoan parasite called Encephalitozoon cuniculi or short name is***** can cause the symptoms you have described. This would cause the Vestibular issues or the Drunk walking and the seizures. It kills rapidly.

This is some information about this parasite. https://www.petcha.com/signs-and-diagnosis-of-e-cuniculi-in-rabbits/

Please hit reply to discuss this information. My condolences on the loss.

Joan

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
