"Our 4 1/2 year old holland lop, Whiskers, had not been eating or drinking very much in the last few days. She was also not as active as normal. We brought her to the vet last night and he said she had a 104 temp and had developed pneumonia. The vet gave her a needle shot of antibiotics and gave us some medicine to give her on the hour. When we got home and tried to give her the first dosage of medicine by syringe, the rabbit took the first one but to complete the total dosage, we had to give her another syringe. My son was holding the rabbit in his chest and I was holding her head still while my wife put the syringe in the rabbit's mouth. The rabbit began to squirl around a lot in my son's arms to the point we could not administer the medicine. We quickly put the rabbit down on the floor and she rolled over rapidly about 3 or 4 times as if having a seizure, then died on the spot. We were all very attached to the rabbit and are very upset. We feel like we killed the rabbit by not giving her the medicine properly. We always kept her cage super clean and fed her mostly pellets. Can you please help us? Did we do something wrong to cause the rabbit to die. Thanks."
