When i got George done, he had it glued first but then he somehow managed to open his wound so they stitched it, he then opened it again so they glued and stapled it & a collar :roll:

So ill vote Glue because they did glue it first :)

I think Molly possibly had both? Internal dissolvable stitches then external glue? Can't remember now though.

Olly had glue but Honey had stitches, as two different vets operated on them and they each have their own way of doing things... I thought the glue was much better as they don't need to have stitches removed - although Honey had dissolvable stitches she had to have them taken out after 10 days as they were irritating her skin a bit and making it swell up... On the poll I voted glue, it wouldn't let me vote twice! :wave:

My three rabbits were all just neutered the end of Feb. The three of them got stiches and also staples.

They had some under the skin and all I could see was two staples and two stiches.
Except for one of them who was cryptorchid (meaning he had one undesended testicle) only had one visable stich and one staple but he had a big long row of stiches and staples on his tummy (where they had to get the other testicle out)

I have never had a neuter/spay done before as Trixie (bridge bun) was only 10weeks and Domino and Tallulah are 8weeks today! Do you get a choice as to what your bun has if there are no reactions/irratations to anything?:)
Also, I'm booking them in for the vets in a few weeks to see when neuter and spay can be done. :)

I was only the tiniest little slit so not worth a stitch

Beano was 'glued' so she wouldn't chew at stitches :)

:wave: My girls both had internal dissolvable stiches & outside glue....
It was the same with my girl cat (different vet) my boy cat had nothing & neither did my dog when he was neutered either...

With boys though it's a much less invasive procedure x

I'm pretty sure this is what my bunnies have had, the girls definitely but not sure if the boys had glue or just stitches.

I've not voted as I want to vote 'both'.
