  1. Our bunny Lana

    Lana didn't make it after the surgery. I got a call saying the surgery went well and she was on a morphine drip. 2 hours later I got a call that they were giving her CPR. 10 minutes later they told me they lost her. They needed to replace her catheter because it wasn't working and she struggled until she went into cardiac arrest. I have no idea how much they are going to charge. I lost my baby and it feels like it was all for nothing.

  4. Our bunny Lana

    Lana is a 5 year old Netherland Dwarf we adopted at 6 months old after she was apart of a huge confiscation. We took the rabbit care classes at the local chapter of the House Rabbit Society and still volunteer for them. Last Thursday I received a call from my son's father that she was dragging her hind legs. We took her to the emergency vet where they prescribed her pain meds and antibiotics. We followed up with our regular vet on Saturday who referred us to Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital where they could do a CT scan. The earliest I could get in there from Denver was yesterday (Tuesday). The vet there confirmed it was a fractured spine and would need surgery. Her prognosis would have been better if she got surgery within 24 hours. She got her CT scan today and doesn't appear to be any spinal cord damage. She is my baby and of course I will sell off whatever I can to save her. He has done 3 spinal surgeries on rabbits with 2 returning to almost normal function. That is a good track record considering most people put their rabbits down and do not see them being worth the $6-8k for surgery . It was a tough week. Last week my son started Day Treatment at Children's Hospital which is costly and time consuming itself. Lana already has a following of undergrads that are enthralled with her because she is so sweet and affectionate despite her condition. I hate asking for help. I don't know what to do. She has plenty of life ahead of her.she can live another 5 to 7 years. The oldest rabbit I heard to live 18 years at the shelter. She is so smart too. My son likes to show all of his teachers the YouTube video of Lana "Bunny Block Training" because nobody believed a rabbit could be trained. She means so much to us and still very much wants to be on the move and be apart of everything.
