It's always a relief when they make it through the surgery and are in recovery:)

It's a shame they had to remove the whole paw, but better that and be sure they got all the cancer. I have heard of several rabbits missing a paw, and they do really well. I am sure Chubby will be up to mischief again just as soon as he can!

Let us know how things go.

Great news for Chubby! Whoohoo. How are you guys holding up? How is Chubby doing tonight?
thanks for asking .. ill take a picture tonight .. when i picked him up from the vet , they were already giving him apples :) so he has been eating normal and drinking water. its just a little hard for him to get around , thanks everyone for caring =D. i was very surprised how he is reacting almost normal.. i just have to keep on him.

as of right now he gets injection ( pain meds ) every 12 hours and antibiotics ( oral ) 2 times per day.

Sounds like he is quite the little fighter :). Great to hear he is already eating and dinking, and acting 'normal'. Please keep us updated.

I'm so glad he's doing GREAT!!!!!! He appears quite determined to make this work. I know this has been really hard on you, very scary. But, you're doing GREAT, too! You and Chubby are an unbeatable team!!!!:party0002:

Aw, so cute! I'm so glad he did so well and is doing well! Whoohoo! Go Chubby! You did the best thing for him and I hope he continues on cancer free!:pray:

Is he getting on okay so far?

Oh, he looks wonderful :). That looks like it's healing really well.

I can only imagine how hard this whole ordeal has been, but when I see those pics, I think you both did awesome.

After all he's been through don't you think that maybe he could live in the house with a little more human contact. A bun can do well in 50 degree temps but I would treat this little guy a little special :)due to his surgery and his age.
it's risky to have him in the garage alone with a puppy. I have 2 dogs myself so am familar enough to know that a 7 month old pup is not predictable.
he sure is a cute little guy:p

oh no .. the pup has a crate always sleeps in there i would never let him roam. also he was in the garage because of my wife she is really allergic to him =( , no problems ill get one of those nice natural gas heaters and have it professionally installed..
