    Thanks everyone, still thinking about it. Her eye looks much better this morning, almost back to normal which is great she's such an angel, takes her loxicom straight from the syringe like it's a treat

    Yea, I really don't know, I'm tempted to go with William because I trust him, tbh if I needed an operation I'd probably want William to do it but then I'm worried I'm not picking the best thing for her? Plus William said the orthopaedic surgeon is really excellent... So the fact that he says that, he must be.. I'm worried I'm picking the known option but just because it don't know the orthopaedic guy doesn't mean anything.. I guess it's fear of the unknown. I know William would do an amazing job. If anyone had to operate on any of my animals I'd want it to be William or Ivone, every time. Clementines surgery was much more complex, so it was a bit different.. So tricky! The money doesn't bother me, it's just knowing which is best, vs what feels more comfortable to me I think (which shouldn't really factor in, but it's influencing me) William would be there either way though which is comforting.

    It's not often a rabbit owner has the dilemma of having to choose between two experts, normally we struggle to find just one!

    I have to admit that I'm swinging backwards and forwards myself on this one. I think the advantage of going with the orthopaedic surgeon is that William is still going to be present during the op. So essentially you wouldn't have to choose as you'd have both of them. Kind of like double bagging!

    I know only you can make the decision but if finances permit and as long as William will definitely be present during the Surgery I'd want the Orthopod Vet to do the actual surgery and William the GA/monitoring. As J+B pointed out having an Exotics Vet do the GA would be a real bonus. That way Penelope will have 2 Vets and a VN in attendance. Each Vet carrying out their own individual specialities Good luck with whatever you decide xx

    I might come to a different conclusion if I were in your shoes and knew William personally etc, but Jane's thoughts mirror exactly what I have been thinking since yesterday evening.

    Sending hugs. These decisions are really tough.
