    Default Dobbin home

    I went to get him at 5, he is in the lounge with me waching children in need!!

    He had a cuddle with me for over an hour he just laid on my lap being stroked.

    My little man is so dopey - awww i feel so guilty.

    The vet said not to use hay for about 7 days - just a bowl of eating suff. Any other tips?

    Awww, has he been de-plummed?

    Just keep an eye on him and make sure he eats/wees/poops

    Sounds like he is enjoying being pampered

    You could use an old towel/blanket for bedding which should be more comfortable for him

    Just let him rest and ensure he has some tastey Veggies available to tempt him to eat. He should have eaten and poo'd a bit overnight.
    You only need to be concerned if there are no poos at all by tomorrow morning or if he is not eating at all.

    If he likes carrots try him with some grated carrot, it was the only thing Pippa would eat after her op. He's probably still dozy from the anaesthetic, Pippa didn't poo until the next morning. I wouldn't worry too much overnight, he'll probably get to be back to more normal tomorrow.

    Has his sneezing etc improved now??

    Thank you - touch wood - the sneezing has gone.

    He has lots of tasty things in his play pen - i shall be staying p all night to watch children in need so i can keep an eye on him till it ends and then i will probably end up sitting up all night!!

    So glad to hear that Dobbin got through his snip ok It may simply be that he wasn't snipped until later on in the day so is still drowsy after the anaesthetic. As Jane says - leave him lots of tasty treats (and water in a bowl, not just a bottle) and see how he is in the morning. If he hasn't eaten/pooped by the morning then I'd pop him back to the vets, but chances are he should be well on the way to feeling better by then.

    Have you got a hay rack? Rather than give no hay all week, I'd be inclined to provide it in a rack or chopped up in the food bowl if you can, he could get out of the habit of eating it, so if it's in a rack or something it's unlikely to get into his wound but is still available for him to munch??
