    Default Neuter gone wrong!

    My friend's male rabbit was taken in to be neutered today and he lost a lot of blood in recovery apparently and had to be put back under. She says he is now floppy and pretty lifeless. She had to pay for the extra operation and I don't think she has insurance or the money to pay for any more vet visits. She is keeping him her with her tonight to see how he does. Any idea what's wrong or what could be done?

    So he haemorrhaged post castration, had a 2nd op (assuming to tie off the spermatic cord properly this time, probable source of blood loss) and the Vet sent him home

    IMO a Rabbit who has haemorrhaged post neuter, then had to have a 2nd GA soon after the first one, should be kept as an inpatient in intensive care. IV fluids, oxygen, heat therapy are all almost certainly essential. Bunny would be at very high risk of hypovolemic shock after a haemorrhage.

    I really hope that poor Bunny pulls through, as for charging for the emergency procedure..............

    I dont have any advice but that sounds horrible.

    i'm also shocked that the vets made your friend pay for the emergency operation after the first was so badly messed up. I mean, I don't know whether it was the vets fault or not - maybe it was just one of those things - but whatever the case that should've been free of charge. I hope they're at least giving her advice over the phone.

    I reckon I'd be looking for a new vet if I were her.

    I hope bunny makes it xx
