    I wonder if the method of stitch is different according to the countries?

    You are right, thank you so much.

    Oh bless him, topping up the get well soon vibes, I have never had a rabbit after neuter in a cone. Could you take it off whilst you are with him and then replace?

    Thanks you all.

    Actually I want to confess something. I don't normally find sterilization behavior very ethical. I don't think it's right to sterilize a living thing. Just as we think it's a terrible thing when we do it to people, I actually thought the same thing when it was done to animals. But I love Cookie so much that I couldn't take the risk considering the possibility of her getting sick in the future. Frankly, my love for him got ahead of ethical values. So I feel a little guilty.

    He is constantly trying to groom himself. If I take off him hat he'll probably damage him stitches so I'm scared.

    Cookie doesn't want to drink from her water bowl since she's wearing a top hat. I don't understand why he doesn't want to try and learn because he has a little difficulty. He drinks when I give him water with a water bottle. Now I'm constantly giving him water every 30 minutes. He's struggling because of the hat on his head, but he can drink water from the bowl as before. But he doesn't want to drink water from the bowl now.

    My bunnies were given cones when they got neutered last year. Joey kept pulling his off and Sophie was just so miserable with it on so wouldn't eat or drink.

    Our vet had requested a next day check up as neither of them had eaten at the vet post op (Joey started eating as soon as he got home). I explained how they were having issues with the cones and they gave us these medical pet shirts

    They're like baby grows for bunnies! They still weren't happy with them but they were a lot happier than they were with the cones. There's a hole for the tail and for them to eat their cecos. They're heads are also free so they can eat and drink normally. It also helped ease my worries as I was paranoid about them chewing their stitches (Joey did this a little the first night when he took his cone off).

    Maybe you could ask your vet about these or find them online? I've also heard of people modifying baby grows or socks!

    Thank you both so much.

    Cookie isn't too happy with the cone hat either but it's good to eat and drink, mashallah.
    I asked this to the vet. At the clinic she said the dress was for female rabbits only, not for males. This dress option is so good, but even many normal rabbit products are not sold in Turkey. I've looked online but can't find it.
