I will defer to my UK friends as what must be done to clean things.  There is an old saying:  When in doubt, scrub it out.  

I am so grateful that the rabbit population here in the US is not yet threatened by this horrible illness.

Soap is pretty effective as a skin cleaner so that is all you need for your feet. I would advise that you clean everything that the buns have had contact with so that is cages, runs, bowls etc.

Try not to worry too much about Henry - easier said than done I know - but each bun has a different natural defence against VHD. Some buns have mild symptoms then recover, others die quickly. Henry may well have better natural resistance.

I'm so sorry to hear you lost Daisy. She was beautiful. I'm sending you loads of hugs Hugs

I agree with everyone else re: cleaning everything thoroughly. Try not to worry about Henry - as Cheryl said he may well have a stronger system than Daisy had.

I've not got anymore advice to offer but I just wanted to let you know that you're in my thoughts xxxxx

Oh Hunny,

I am so so so sorry, I have only just seen the post. I am gutted for you. Please like the others said - do not blame yourself, these things we cannot control Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad .

Henry like others have said will have a stronger immune system and with you cleaning and stuff and taking those precautions I am sure the little sweetheart will be fine.

I really do not know what else to say, I know your pain and I just want you to know we care and give our love and support. Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs

Reading all this thread I don't think it was VHD but it's worth just cleaning everything anyway.

Don't blame yourself it happens to us all Hugs Hugs

Oh just seen the bit bleeding from the eyes oh dear , could be VHD but I hope it isn't.

I am so sorry about Daisy, how incredibly sad Sad 

Nothing you said about her led any of us to think this might be the outcome, so please, please don't blame yourself Hugs Hugs Hugs 

I really hope Henry is ok.





This might not be the time to offer, but whenever you are ready to consider another bun we'll happily take you to the rescue - if you wait until Henry has been neutered, he can come too and pick a nice girl for himself. The benefit is that a rescue bun will already be spayed and vaccinated, so less to worry about, and she'll be able to be with Henry straight away. Don't think it's only old bunnies in rescues, either - there are plenty of youngsters in need of forever homes too Hugs Hugs Hugs

I'm so very sorry to hear what has happened hunni - I agree with the others - it does sound like VHD sadly :-(

I don't have anything to add to the excellent advice given, but I am sending you my love.

Don't blame yourself hunni - you did everything you could for them both xxxx

Hi thank you everyone! My dad doesn't have the funds to get he cremated Sad we burried her In the front garden in a comfy shoe box with a warm blanket and some hay, away from the back. We cleaned her cage thoroughly and Henry seems a little low but not ill! Low because he's missing daisy. It's not the Same without her.. She was full of character and always had us laughing! Hopefully she's binkying away up there!! Xxxxxx
Shall I look into getting him a spayed female companion?

Yes - most buns from rescue will be spayed before they go home. They will also have their vaccinations and the rescue will mostly likely know if they have any underlying issues such as dental problems.

How did you get on at the vets?

I'd wait until a few weeks after Henry is neutered, so he can go with her straight away.

Several of our buns came from Tameside Rabbit and Guinea Pig Rescue, and they're all lovely buns.... even Gizmo... Wink

So sorry for your loss. It does sound like Daisy died from VHD which is so tragic when she was nearly old enough to be vaccinated. Henry maybe has a stronger system than she did as she was smaller, so hopefully he will get through this OK. HugsHugs Hugs

Thank you everyone I've felt a lot better today and made Henry's run bigger and he seems happy. Daisy will always be in our thoughts.. I've mentioned her so much today I keep forgetting she's gone. Sad

My mothers old friend was getting rid of a female 10 month old Lion head so I brought her home today. I had to get another as I felt as if Henry would of felt lost without another bunny. I just hope this little girl isn't pregnant as she said she was homed with another girl but Ruby (her name for the time being until we think of another or keep Ruby!) seems to be round around her stomach.

Still missing my Daisy doo! Hope she's very happy up there.

She was deteriorating as she had a operation and she can't deal with the bunnies.
