1150. Rabbit biting herself passes away

The owner phoned to tell me that his 4-year-old rabbit with the jaw abscess in which I took X-rays and treated, passes away in her sleep.

The young couple had boarded the rabbit at a friend's place and she started to bite off her front paw fur and lately her back paw. She was drooling and wet. The jaw abscess was not present and so it was strange that she passed away. She was on pain-killers and antibiotics and had some appetite.

"She started to bite her front legs again," the husband said. "Also her front paws."

Could this be an allergic reaction or infection? It is a mystery.
