Exclamation Best News Ever

hi, i talked to my brother yesterday trying to convince him to take me to neu. my rabbits, i showed how they started to put feces everywhere in the room, and told him to try to catch them and that they wont let him hold them cuz their starting to become aggressive ( thier not aggressive but they dont let him hold them cuz he always likes to chase them aroud the house and now they dont trust him thats why he cant hold them but i made the agfressive part up cuz i know how much he likes to hold them and told him after their neu. they'll let him hold them and play with them lol) and many other reasons and he finally AGREED!!!!!!!! so i will be taking them to a vet in a couple of weeks ( when they turn 6 monthes) yaaay im sooo happy i get to keep my babies
but to every happy story theirs a problem ! all hospitals are far from my house and the one thats kinda close ( 50 mins away) is very expensive! to neu. a rabbit its 500 dollars!! ( and neu. a cat or dog its 45 dollars crazy ha?) see i was hoping maybe it'll cost $150-200 most people that i asked said its around that price but 500 thats crazy and i have 2 rabbits so it'll cost me like more than a thousand dollars
ill telll the rest later cuz im in school now lol

yay, you get to keep them!! The price you got does seem very high even for a female. I just finished paying $294 for a female which is still very pricey. Have you checked with the shelter to see if they would do it? BTW...you are soooo sneaky (with your brother).

Call them all and ask how often they do spays and neuters on RABBITS and if they have lost any patients and what the circumstances were.
If they will do it, but have never done it before, keep looking.

Yeah, the most important thing isn't usually price, it's the vets experience and knowledge of rabbits.

Ask about how many rabbits they've fixed, and out of those did they ever have any pass away for any reasons. Don't go to a vet that's only worked with a handful of rabbits, or one that's had a lot die on them.

To make sure they know what they're doing, it's a good idea for you to read up on the facts then ask your vet questions and make sure they know the right answers too! Like ask them if your rabbit can eat the night before surgery, and the answer should be yes, you do not fast rabbits like you would cats or dogs because they need to have food in their system, and they can't throw up. Also, ask your vet what kind of anesthesia they use on rabbits - isoflurane is usually considered the safest to use on rabbits.

OMG 500 dollars thats like 250 pound over here thats way to pricey for a vet cant you look around for another vet, vets over here charge about 50 pound (about 100 dollars) if you cant find another vet do a little research on em first just to make sure your not being ripped off maybe you could find someone who has used that vet and ask their opinion, if not then i hope everything goes well for ur little buns xxx

There is no preparations that are needed...just lots of snuggles because you feel guilty putting them through this...but it is for their health and well being.

Metacam is a pain reliever that my female was put on twice a day for three days after her surgery. My male was not given any pain medication...he rebounded beautifully like nothing happened.

I'm not sure if bonded bunnies should be separated or not. If there was conflict before surgery I would think they should be separated until the healing is done. Females 14 days...males 7 days I believe.

Supervised playtime is needed to control the amount of activity they are doing. No binkies...no jumping up on furniture. They could undo stitches.

If bunnies are grooming too much after surgery they may need to wear a collar so they can't work at the incision.

It is surprising how fast they resume their normal activity.

You will also need to check the incision at least twice daily to see that all looks well.

I think you could carry them. You will need to lift them to check out the incision so as long as they are not struggling to free themselves it should be okay.
