my little bug

by anita

Lily was an 8 week old bunny when I adopted her from the humane society. For 9 years she was cage free and the light in my soul. She was diagnosed with cancer and after a second opinion at the college of veterinary surgeons they told us radiation therapy could give her another year of life at a cost of 3000 dollars. We were ready to do anything for this precious little girl until they reviewed the CT scan and said the cancer had already spread and she had fluid in her chest and maybe two months to live. She stopped eating everything but treats and was barely walking. I made the choice to euthanize her and now feel nothing but guilt and heartache.

Your Bunny
by: Charlotte

I also had to euthanize my bunny so I can certainly empathize. I felt like I was in an altered stated for a long time afterward, like I lost touch with the earth itself. She was awesome...she would lay beside me and snuggle. She lived inside too and had free range of my home. She got in bed with me. She ate with me. She was my best buddy. I still miss her and I still think I was wrong to euthanize her. But I didn't know then what I know now. But sometimes I let myself go down that slope and I suppose that's not a good way to honor the spectacular Bunny that she was. I miss her and I love her.

I'm so sorry

I had 4 dogs and one of them had cancer , wow just said in words at the Vets. " 8 weeks"
I really know how you feel, I've been in that position twice although having other dogs may have made it easier. It's the guilt that gets you as you made the final decision . You loved your bunny and you made that decision out of love . Your bunny wouldn't want to be in pain and it is the last kindest thing you did for her. You took her suffering away because you loved her and you have given it to yourself . It is the kindest and most selfless thing you did. Your bunny will always be with you.. God bless you
