    Mix it with her favourite food. She probably will be ok anyway without it, is it 3 days now since she was spayed?

    It's a liquid though and not a paste? Should I still mix it in with her pellets? Thay would be so so much easier.

    This is her 4th day post up but there still seems to be LOADS of it left. She does seem so much better as of yesterday! So maybe I don't need to get so stressed if she won't take it all...

    You could put it on a few porridge oats if she likes that sort of thing, or a small piece of dry toast

    I'd give the Vet a call for advice as to whether she actually needs to continue having it. As you say she seems to be much better within herself it may be that the Vet will feel that it is appropriate to stop giving it, especially as attempting to do so is causing her a lot of stress. That could be counterproductive x

    I might just do that. I'll give it a go in her pellets and if she still isn't having it I'll give them a call. They had a horrible start in life before rescued and aren't very trusting. I'm only just beginning to get their trust and have them stop running and hiding every time we enter the room and things so I really don't want to set that back either.

    It's what I'd do in your situation

    I recently had a doe spayed and my vet advised to give her the pain relief for 3 days and then only give her more if she appeared to be in pain. Tbh I think she would have been OK after 2 days.

    If your rabbit is moving about OK and your vet says it's OK to stop it, I wouldn't be concerned to discontinue it.

    I am glad your bunny is doing better.
    It was also fun to read the posts about the changes in caring for bunnies from a decade or two ago.
