Hi all, First time posting here, but there seems to be a great wealth of knowledge here, so I'm hoping to get some useful feedback please. First off, we live on a small island in the UK, so there aren't many rabbit-savvy vets available. My bonded female, Strawberry, was attacked by our newest house rabbit addition Robin. We took her to the vet and she ended up getting three sets of stitches about 1.5 weeks ago. The worst damage was done to her nose. Basically half of it was torn and they had to sew it down with stitches. We went for a checkup last week and the nose wasn't healing very well and there was a little necrosis, so she immediately went in for a new set of stitches after removing the little bit of dead tissue. We went in for another checkup this morning. This afternoon her stitches opened up again. Now, when we spoke to the vet, he said that the second time around the stitches would hopefully heal the nose, and that they couldn't likely carry out the same type of stitching for a third time, as the amount of tissue is very small and there's not much room to tie down the nose flap to cartilidge. This afternoon, after trying to gently apply some iodine to the tip of the nose, the stitches opened. I'm not sure what we should do. The tissue underneath the skin is exposed, a small triangle's worth. I'm afraid to go back to the vet as I'm not sure what other options there are for her re: stitching it closed shut. She doesn't seem to be in any pain (I know rabbits don't show pain) and is eating normally. I just don't know if it's ok for that tissue to be exposed, or what we can do to help it heal at home, without more trauma to the area.
