I haven't posted in awhile, I am sooo busy with classes, but here is a little update on my bun. For the last 7 months or so since my bun was diagnosed with malocclusion I had been getting his teeth clipped twice a month (expensive yikes) but then he broke off his bottom teeth and my vet started pushing me towards getting them removed completely but I didn't want to do it yet because I was worried about having them removed. Then he broke them off AGAIN somehow, so I decided to schedule him for incisor removal.
He had all 6 teeth removed yesterday around noon ( 4 top and 2 bottom ) and I brought him home at 4:30. He was his usual bratty self towards other people when I picked him up. He went after the male ( I don't think he likes men very much, he doesn't care when the female techs pick him up and hold him ) vet tech that was trying to put him in the carrier and the head vet was like "Oh, he is known for that" haha. He is on antibiotics & pain meds for a few days. I thought I was going to have to force feed him but he started eating 20 minutes after I brought him home. He ate a big plate of vegetables that I cut up so it is easier for him to pick up, some pellets, and even started eating his hay a few hours later after he figured out how to pick it up with his lips. I felt so bad for him though last night! He looked so sad and just wanted to sit in my lap and get head rubs.
Today he is a lot more active and is harassing me for more food and attention constantly. I think he might get to be a free roam bunny soon since he isn't destructive anymore now that he is about 1 yr and 4 months. I might have to cage him at night because he has something against me sleeping, he always nudges my cheek or tickles my face with his whiskers until I wake up because he wants my attention.
Hopefully they don't grow back though! The vet said something about having to damage the growth plate to stop the teeth from growing back and the worst case, which she said she hasn't ever had happen, is they grow back impacted which means I will have to take him for another surgery at a specialist an hour away. It will be about 2 months before we know they aren't growing back for sure.
Anyways that is it about my bunny boy
