Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
Don't be too nervous. I have had my Ophelia and Penelope spayed. Ophelia was young when she was done. Not really sure how old but no more than 5 months I think. She was fine. It really didn't phase her a bit. Penelope is at least a year old but I would guess no more than 3. She was a bit sore the day after. I took her back and they gave her pain meds. She was fine once they kicked in. She was on them for 10 days. It was a liquid that smelled like honeysuckle. I had to force it on her twice and then she LOVED it. It is a liquid that is administered through a syringe. When she saw me with the syringe she hopped happily over. I would push the plunger down slowly and she liked it off the tip. I think she may have been said when the 10 days were up.
Neither of my buns were sent home with antibiotics. Although when I had Tabby she was on one - baytril - and she LOVED it as much as Penelope loved the metacam. They both would try and grab the syringe if it didn't come out quickly enough.
I am sure she will be fine. And remember once this is over you won't have to worry about cancer. Many female bunnies develop cancer in the later years.
