While Walter never made it to surgery, we have incurred quite a large amount of vet/lab/med bills leading up to his passing. Nationwide Pet was amazing but we have maxed out both Walter and Betsy's diagnoses. (still, at $10 a month, I would recommend everyone have it...One issue will pay for a years worth of insurance). We greatly appreciate any donations towards the now highly stacked bills. As I told a friend as I was driving to Madison yesterday, though, as long as Walter fights, I fight. He was always a fighter. Anything surpassing the still incoming bills will be split and donated between the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Humane Society, in his honor. I am sure he is nosebumping all the kiddos who left too soon, looking for head pets and nanners. <3
A Tribute to Walter from BunBun Rwa:
Dr. Walter P. Eckert crossed the Bridge on July 12, 2017. He is survived by his Bunwife Betsy and his human family.
Dr. Eckert was a professional Therapy Rabbit with Rabbitat for Humanity. His practice included humans of all ages, children, adults and seniors, and he made calls to hospitals, schools and nursing homes. He was an Ambassador of Hope and Healing to humanity. His life's work is a testament not only to the Joy which Rabbits can bring to hooms, but to the inherent humanity which Rabbits possess.
