My bunny Lola had her spay almost 2 weeks ago now, but has still not returned to her normal self.
She had to spend 4 days in the vets after the spay as she wasn't eating or pooping - when she finally did, they sent her home with some medicine to help her 'keep regular'. She was very good at taking her medicine, and we completed the course. The vets are happy with how the wound is healing - so no need to go back to the vets.
However, she still doesn't seem completely back to her normal self.
Normal being: she would eat all the dried rabbit food each day in her bowl (1/2 cup) and any veggies put down. She's eating some of the veggies, but not all the rabbit food. She would also come straight out when the cage is opened up for free-time in the living room (bunny proofed) but she comes out for a little hop around, then retreats back into her cage.
Is this normal for a rabbit that has been spayed? How long will it be before she's back to 'normal'? Should I be worrying about her?
