It would depend on the overall general health of the Rabbit
The Rabbits age, weight etc.

I have had a few Rabbits whom have had a successful cystotomy :)

One of mine had bladder sludge a couple of years ago and was flushed out (under GA), he was fine once we got him to eat and not had a recurrance of it. Make sure pain relief is given.

This is for Max.

Max is a 2 and a half year old giant. He has not had the best of health so far with 2 eye infections, 2 ear infections, stasis twice and a dental. For a giant his weight has always been around 11lb (which is on the light side for a giant).

He is booked in for tomorrow morning.
