Comment on Grieving the loss of a rabbit by Biscuit.
Thank you, so much, for your site. Reading this page has been very comforting. Our Flemish Giant was euthanized 2 days ago and I am utterly devastated. We had been working so hard on getting rid of an abscess on her shoulder that we were completely shocked to discover she had flystrike. Why the vet didn’t recommend Rearguard I don’t know, yet feel all the guilt of not having caught it soon enough and not even knowing about it. The only reason I saw it was because there were two flies around her rear, which I thought odd.
As my partner stated, it was a privilege to have known her. She was the sweetest, gentlest and most sensitive creature I have ever encountered. That such beings live on this earth is a blessing. Her gentleness softened hearts and we all experienced more love than we ever thought possible.
