Just brought Timothy home from his neuter, he immediately started drinking and eating hay, pellets, veggies! He's even flopped and is currently trying to get out of the x-pen haha. So I tried calling the vet hospital to ask these questions but they've been busy so figured I'd also ask bunny owners who have gone through this before.

- I noticed they shaved his leg for an IV, will there be an issue if he starts to lick and groom it?
- I've read online that bedding like straw or shavings should be removed to keep the wound clean. I only use wood pellets and I cover it with a thick layer of hay in the litterbox, will the hay bother his incision site? Pic of his setup below. Also when can I let him roam his room again? Been reading different things and my vet's care sheet just says to limit exercise for a few days.
- Should I be stopping him every time he tries to lick or pick at the incision? I noticed he's been reaching down there a few times already so I distracted him with food but what about when I'm not around?

Sorry for all the questions! He seems totally fine but I want to make sure I'm doing this right after I just paid $470 for his neuter 😆

Also someone recommended I remove the ikea bed so I've replaced it with a blanket :) If there's anything else I should remove please let me know!

I tried to take a peak last night and he let me look for about a few seconds before he started kicking, it looked the same but I know when I got my dog neutered his also looked refilled for the first day or two haha. I'll look again this morning and see if I can get a pic (if that's appropriate to post here? lol)

Well I was unable to get a pic.. but his balls still look the same. I read that they will shrivel over time so seems normal, didn't see any bleeding or redness so hopefully will recover well
