Aww, keep yourself busy until you can 'phone the vet. Waiting is horrible, isn't it?
Sending lots of good luck vibes to Pickle, he'll be home with you safe and sound before you know it.

Good luck Pickle! :D I know how hard it is - I cried the whole day while Bundle was there being spayed, but after a couple of days she was absolutely fine and back to her usual self again so don't worry.

Sending big hugs to you and Pickle :lol:

I'm sure he'll be fine..after all no news is good news

25-10-2006, 01:27 PM
any news yet?

25-10-2006, 02:39 PM
Well he has had the op and he is "fine". But they might keep him in overnight. I have to phone at 5.30 to see the outcome.

Why does he have to stay in overnight. Something must be wrong :( :( :( :(

Did they not say why? I'd ring back and ask why they might want to keep him in..he's your bun and you have the right to know!

They said all the bunnies might be kept in. She seemed a bit nervous. Said bunnies are slower to get over an op so they need to make sure they eat/poo/drink ok

If it's just a case of him not eating or pooing yet I'd be tempted to bring him home, surely he's more likely to relax in familiar surroundings and you can keep an eye on him overnight and tempt him with his favourite foods. When my bun was spayed she came home and didn't eat anything except a bit of grated carrot until the next day. Hope he's ok xx

Well the vets are not letting Pickle come home tonight :( :( Not sure if they are just being cautious or not... receptionist was very matter of fact.

Problem is I have planned a day to Chessington tomorrow with the kids as it is half term, so not sure when I am going to get him back now and am gonna spend all day thinking about him at the vets :( :(

When my two girls went in for their spays Effie came round fine but Jess was really slow to recover so they kept them both in overnight and they were both fine. I'm sure your little one will be fine, some buns are a bit slower to come round than others, if I understand things right the fact that Pickle has come round means he's past the worst of it. Fingers crossed for him.x

Lucky stayed in overnight and nearly caused me a breakdown :oops:

He refused to eat until he came home :roll:

26-10-2006, 09:07 PM
Pickle is home :D :D

He was able to be collected this afternoon - was at Chessington with the kids so left early and rushed back to get to him before the vets closed!!

Lots of money spent on tickets for Chessington but couldnt leave poor Pickle in the vets!

He is indoors and seems ok. Seen him eat hay and veg but not seen him drink or eat his pellets. Doing poops/wee.

What can I do with him now? Can I pick him up etc?

26-10-2006, 09:17 PM
keep him warm and give him plenty of nose rubs :wink:

He soon be back to himself again

Pickle had a check up at the vets today. He was really grumpy at having to go back to "that nasty place". The reason the vets were concerned was because one of his incisions looked a bit sore. They have said to keep him indoors until his stitches come out on 6th NOvember as they dont want his wound becoming infected in the outdoor run (which is wet and a bit muddy although on concrete).

He is running around my living room doing little jumps so must be feeling so much better now :D

28-10-2006, 07:11 PM
awww good news he is feeling ok now. All of my males stitches have been soluble stitches :?
