Default Mikey

Mikey went in to get neutered today. So did my bunny Niblet. Of course I will worry about them all day. <sigh>

I had them give Mikey a sedative while I was there because he hates being picked up or having his back end handled. He's gotten a lot better with that since we've gotten him. Almost 100% better but he doesn't know them and I just don't want problems. (more problems.)

I'll let you know how it goes. In case you're intersted.

Hi Saqe....

Awww....I'm so sorry that you have to worry all day about your babies. Everything will go just fine, I'm sure. I will keep them in my thoughts today, and, yes, please do let me know how it goes.

Take care,
Dena

Thanks guys. I do worry about them a lot even though I know that it's not that complicated an operation. It's still an operation.

I get to pick them up in 3 hours and 21 minutes. LOL I can't wait! I think I'll go early.

Thanks. He will be sooo pampered. The bunny too. It's not easy on them I'm sure. But I'm really hoping to see some changes in his behaviour too. I can't wait 'til the end of the day!

Well, they're back and very groggy. Mikey seems fine. He weaves when he walks and is very mellow but he's still doped. It's quite amusing. Just have to keep him from licking his stitches.

I'm a little worried about Niblet though. His hair around his eyes looks like it was all wet and dried. I don't know why that would happen. And he looks very stoned and out of sorts.

The vet assistant told me not to feed him tonight (either of them but I"m talking about niblet) but my favourite rabbit website said that it was very important to make sure they eat so their stomachs don't shut down. They can get GI Stasis very easily and die. I gave him a little bit of food because my vet is very nice but he's not a small animal vet.

I hope they'll be ok. I'm not really worried about Mikey though.

That's the news!

Sounds like they're in good hands - YOURS!

Thanks! Mikey's so funny. He keeps falling asleep in the oddest positions.

Glad to hear all went well! Your real fun will start tomorrow when Mikey is feeling up to start getting rambunctious & he's supposed to stay semi-quiet!
