    I have two pet rabbits and currently one is dying and there's nothing I can do.
    She's 8-9 years old currently and she's very unwell, not eating, crying/squealing etc and I'm not sure she is going to even make it through to the weekend. She has never done any of these things before until recent weeks but the squealing noises have only started today when I got home and its happened 3+ times so far (witnessed 3, possibly more when I was at school).
    I still have 2 exams to go, M2&C3 but I can't concentrate right now, I'm just switching between crying and trying to revise for tomorrows exam but I can't. No one will be home for at least two hours.
    We have another but I can't even bare the thought for him to be alone, they have been together for 7 years now but imagining one alone is just heartbreaking for me.

    I don't know where to post this so sorry if its the wrong section but I feel this will impact my remaining exams and I don't know what to do.

    It is best if you can take the pet to the vet as they would be able to give you support,help and advice! Of course it will be hard for you to concentrate as it is your pet and you don't want to lose it. Personally I would take the pet to the vet just so that you are not as worried. Your exams are important and so is your pet but you really need to try your best to revise. Hope my advice has helped and I hope your pet gets better.

    I can't though, the vet is fairly far and my parents wont be home for two hours minimum so there's no way to get her there for a while now.

    Can you apply for emotional special consideration? Probably would only get you +1% raw marks, but every little counts (as so they say)

    Call the vet if you can, they should be able to give you advise

    In regards to exams, they won't give you anything, they're brutal when it comes to special consideration

    Definitely take her to the vet ASAP though

    What about giving them a call and possibly asking them about what to do just so the animal is not in pain. I'm really sorry to hear as I have lost my dog a few months back and I know the feeling of not been able to do a lot to help. I guess it is something that we can't control...so sorry to hear that you are unable to take it to the vet.

    So sorry to hear this JN17- I know its very difficult and you should have a good cry, but after that you need to get back to your exams. You only have two left.

    Contact the exam officer and tell them whats happened. Tell them you wnat to make an application for special consideration. If accepted (distress and traumatic event), thne that could get you 2-3%

    Sorry to hear about this, you have nothing to lose by contacting your schools exam officer and explaining how you feel. They may try and get you special consideration but as stated above exam boards are particularly harsh on awarding this. Just try and focus on the positives. You cared for her for many years and she had a great life because of you!
