My 8 year old bunny died few days ago and I can't find peace, I'm crying ever since. I saw she was not feeling so well in the evening...the next day in the morning I brought her to the vet..hairball in her stomach and low body temperature. The doctor didn't give her much chance but by the end of the day, she managed to remove the hairballs, got normal on temperature and started eating by herself. I was so happy....The next morning they called me she passed away overnight, unknown reasons...I'm devastated. I know hairball is mainly due to lack of fiber and lately I neglected her hay intake. I was giving her, but not constantly...on the other hand, she had one of the best pellets (reach in fiber) and freedom to eat fresh grass from our yard for 1-2 hours a day. Her sister is healthy (I'm thinking if hay was the problem, her sister would also have problem). I keep thinking if I was giving her hay more often, if I was doing something that evening instead of waiting until the morning....I feel so bad and ask myself why it ended this way. I had her since she was a baby and for 8 years she was by my side...

I'm very sorry for your loss.  Bunnies are very fragile.  it sounds like you did everything you could have done for her.  You gave her a wonderful life for eight years, and that is the best gift you could have given her.
