    A few weeks ago I was chatting to a friend and she got her rabbit from Pets at Home. Anyway there were alot of problems with infections etc and a very high vet bill.

    The poor rabbit had to have all his teeth taken out so now he is gummy!

    It seems I was lucky Leo is a PAH bunny and he's perfectly healthy.

    If your friend can get evidence from the vet to say that it came with these problems and they did not develop while in your friends care then I would advise making a complaint to P@H

    Good luck to your friend and her bunny!

    Well they gave her the money back for the vets bills, but the cheeky sods asked her if she wanted to swap the rabbit for a different one!

    How awful, its a lovely little thing.

    I'm glad that they paid up, but I find it odd they offered to swap the rabbit. After all you friend has been through to make her pet healthy why would she want to swap it?

    Exactly!

    I think they asked her to swap it before she had all the work done.

    I know, it really is awful.

    On th bright side tho, the rabbit is now much healthier and loving his life without teeth

    I'm not surprised. They could have had the rabbit PTS, and saved the money that they have had to pay out on the vets bills. Its all business to them. the less money they have to pay out, the better.

    Your friend did the right thing. So many people would have cut their losses and gone for the swap. Fickle beings.
