Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes

Definitely find a bunny savvy vet. I know the others said it but it is so very important. I got the blood work done for all of my buns so the vet could be sure they used the proper type and amount of anesthesia. If the vet says fast him before the operation CANCEL his appointment immediately. Buns cannot vomit and should never ever be fasted. I put hay in the carriers on the way into the vets and sent them with some of their own food and some hay. I even sent some treats for them.
Make sure that when he comes home he doesn't jump around too much. He should keep all four paws on the floor for a bit. He may not need pain medication but you may want to ask your vet for some just in case. My buns have always used metacam. I only had to give Penelope pain medication after her spay - she was older when spayed. Once the first dose of metacam got into her system she was absolutely fine again. He should be fine though - it's easier on boys.
