Encephalitozoon Cuniculi a silent killer
Hello to the team.
I don't want to get into details and keep this simple hopping that I might help some other people. I really hope that some parts of this can be pinned because it might save some bunnies out there and save a lot of pain and grieving of loving owners.
E. Cuniculi is really a nasty parasite because:
What you should do:
E. Cuniculi is nasty. I also need to mention that I treated E. Cuniculi a few month before my girls fall ill as a precaution for a new baby coming home. We visit the vet quite a few times and all time we concluded that bunny was very old and the symptoms she had did not fit well for E. Cuniculi. I realized that something was not right when the bunny developer cataracts in a period less than 3 days (my vet insisted that I was wrong and that she had developed this condition many many weeks and I just did not realized it) and because I had the medicine I gave it any way to rule it out. A few days after my other bunny had a seizure and then the vet told me that he also believed that it was E. Cuniculi as well. Two weeks after the bunnies made a very good recovery; the first to get sick can now again run around, eats and started drinking water and the 2nd has not had any more seizures... However both are visibly not what the used to be. Now for those wondering how we got it, my wife's father brought their bunny home, and although I did not let it come close to mine (not even in the same room) the shared the garden; he peed everywhere and my first to get sick she would run and smell them.
Wishing you all the best, and thank you for your kind support and the help you have provided to the rest of us!
