My rabbit died yesterday and I had him for 5 years. I noticed the rabbit was full of poop (poop stuck to his bottom?). He had been attacked by flies and the vet removed the visible maggots. The rabbit was not obese.
The vet told me he was injecting the rabbit with antibiotics and some other medicine to kill any remaining maggots.
Took the rabbit again to the vet for follow up and he found more maggots inside the testicles and this time the bunny had an operation and his testicles were removed because the maggots were inside the skin.
2 days later I took the rabbit back to the vet for a follow up and also the vet said he was going to put laser on the rabbit to speed up the drying of the wound.
While I was in the waiting room the vet technician, came out with my bunny dead. He said my rabbit died from a heart attack. I do not understand. Can this be possible? Or could it be something went wrong with the laser?
I am trying to get some sense on what happened. The rabbit supposedly did not have anymore maggots. He had even undergone an operation. The rabbit was very skinny but was still eating how could he die when I took him for a follow up and laser?
He died 3 days after his operation at the vet's office.
I don't believe the vet. Something went wrong when my rabbit was inside while I was waiting for him outside in the waiting area. Or maybe there were still maggots inside that kill him and it was a coincidence that he died at the vet's office?
