Georgie did extremely well in surgery, and was up and hopping pretty much as soon as the anethesia wore off. I took his newest favorite treat (tarragon) with me, along with some greens and things to entice him to eat, and the tech said he inhaled it! The vet said that it looks like he eats better than she does!!
Oh yeah, the vet also added the Georgie had the biggest nads she'd ever removed!! But he was himself right away...when I got home and took him out of his carrier, he proceeded to dig at my pants and bite them. Hopefully THAT aspect of his hormones will go away!!
Thanks for the well wishes and good thoughts everyone!! Here's to hoping that he doesn't chew his stitches...every time I've had a critter get stitches, they've always tried to remove them and the wound gets infected. So keep your paws crossed for him!!
You know, for some reason Ive never had any trouble with bunnies pulling on stitches. I have with other animals but not my rabbits. Heres hoping I can pass on some of that good luck to you and Georgie. Keep him occupied with toys and snuggles and he should be ok.
He's doing all of that just fine!! I'm dog sitting at my parents' house this weekend, so Georgie is staying here with me. We have a breakfast room (sun room kind of thing), and he's staying there. It's a nice area, free from steps and levels...it's linoleum floor, so I laid out a rug and several fleece swatches for him to rest on. He's not a fan of floors where he can't get footing, so he seems to be doing well. There's plenty of poo in the room, spread about of course. I hope he doesn't forget his litter training after this!!
One thing...I just held him to give him his pain meds and his tail was wet. It didn't smell like urine...was he just grooming himself? It wasn't sopping wet, just kind of damp. Should I be worried about it? (Never had an animal other than my dog neutered before...)
hmm were you able to look at the area? I would think it could be a little damp just from a little discharge of fluids around the area. The area always looks a little shriveled and a tiny bit bloody the first day or so. I would just keep an eye on him. Watch for bleeding or excessive discharge.
One trick Naturestee suggested is to make them stand against their cage for treats, you can usually get a look then without having to pick them up.
I'd say he's more masculine because he isable to romance and groom a future mrs. wonderbun. He'll be healthier and not hormone-obsessed.You know humans choose toget vasectomies (sp?) and that doesn't make them less worthy of female companionship. Spay and neuters save lives. Cheers to you and yours,
