Dutchie was neutered today!
Finally!! I was able to get Dutchie neutered today...wasn't sure if it was going to happen actually! Dr. Lehr had his own doctor's appointment late this morning and had requested "light" on the surgeries for today...no big deal, Dutchie's neuter was the only surgery scheduled and we had only 3 appointments this morning...however, we had 5 walk-ins!! By the time everyone was seen, it was time for Dr. Lehr to go to his appointment, so Dutchie was put on hold
(actually, Dutchie GOT held almost all day! Everyone was carrying him around and playing with him
Yup, he likes being carried)
So anyway, when I went back after lunch, Dr. Lehr found time to actually do Dutchie's neuter! (I expected it to have to wait till tomorrow) But when I came in, he was being sedated and shaved up. Unfortunetly, I couldn't observe the surgery since I had dogs to walk. All went REALLY smooth though! Dr. Lehr said it was one of the easiest rabbit neuters he's done! Said he didn't have to "dig around" or anything
He also got his nails trimmed and teeth checked. I wanted his teeth checked because he's not a big chewer and just wanted to be sure they weren't getting too long. All was good in the toofers department. Apparently they are the perfect length and NICE and Straight! So even though the neuter didn't take place till this afternoon, Dr. discharged him home to me (normally they won't discharge them until they are eating and drinking) But since no one is there overnight to watch him, it was better I take him home
He's doing good now...little bit of pouting still...won't come to the cage door when I open it, but he's eating and drinking and letting me rub his ears (he likes that)
So anyhoo...that's my tale for today...Dutchie lost his jewels
