He will be having his upper and lower set of front teeth extracted tomorrow morning. I always worry about him going for ops, more than Jasper and Buttons. I really hope he will feel happier not having to struggle them any more but I can imagine he won't like us for a few days :(

Have got all his favourite noms in today, and a big cuddle will be waiting for him when he gets home. Fingers crossed it all goes well for him...

We are about to leave. His lunchbox is packed full of things he can eat but i dont think he will want to eat much after the op! Feeling very sick with nerves.

not heard anythign yet, but as someone said on my thread last week when Jasp went for his op, 'no news is good news'

08-08-2013, 12:44 PM
Yes no news is good news. I hope he wakes up quickly and is home with you soon :love:

I'm sure you have this covered but make sure you have some soft sloppy foods for the first few days, recovery food, baby food ect. When my Jem had that op she needed an almost liquid diet at first, her poor little gums were sore :(

But don't worry, she was back to stripping the wallpaper for us within a week or two :evil: :lol:

He is still in surgery! Poor darling. They have removed 3 teeth so far.

The vet should give you some. Good luck.

:( Poor thing is really tired. He has just had a bit of kale and thyme. He doesn't want to eat much which is understandable really, although he has had some water.

He is still very out of it but has pooped over night and has been eating and drinking. I have just given him some chopped up herbs and kale and he has started eating that too (albeit with his eyes closed!) We are off to the vets soon to get his medicine and figure out the correct dosage.

Poor Nibbles! Really glad he's eating, he is already doing better than Jem did!

I hope the vet is happy with his progress and don't worry too much, it is insane how fast they heal and get over it, especially with appropriate pain relief :thumb:

He has just had a run around, pooping everywhere and is now trying to eat hay. I'm not sure if he shuold be doing that yet?! But it's nice to see him eating.

Here are some photos ...

Not happy with you mummy!



As you can see, he's still very tired and poss under the influence of anaesthetic / pain killers... bless him!

Awwwwww isn't he gorgeous :love::love::love:

Look at him washing his little face xxxxxx

I just took this photo... do you think he's annoyed at me?! :shock:

Aww bless him :love:

I certainly wouldn't stop him eating hay although it sounds sore! Maybe try and offer him softish hay, that might help?

Yes, I have some readigrass too but he's not interested in that. Wants to eat hay. I don't think he is in pain because he's eating OK, he's just very sleepy still. Will see what the vet thinks when we go back this morning

Hope nibbles is feeling better soon, sounds like he is doing really well.
When my bun Coco had her front teeth removed I soaked her pellets in warm water so they were soft for her to pick up and to eat. She also had trouble picking up her veggies so I used to grate them for her, she loved a bit of grated apple and carrot as a little treat when she was recovering.

Just been for a checkup and hes healing well already! Nibbles isnt having any trouble picking up food and the vet is very pleased with his recovery so far. We will be back again on monday to check on it.

He decided to flop in his favourite spot (the litter tray :lol:) :love:

He's back outside now, seems to be OK!
