Tofu Tuesday: Towel bedding

It has been 1 week since Tofu’s surgery to remove a bladder stone. Tofu has 7 stitches in his belly and until he is healed, he has lots of towels instead of hay. We’re also keeping him inside for now to limit his movement and chances of anything poking into his tender belly. It is a little extra laundry but no biggie. Tofu is getting plenty of snuggles and is eating well. He is currently on 3 meds a day: Deprim – antibiotic Metacam – pain and inflammation Temgesic – a strong opioid  for pain relief Tofu says thank you to all your well wishes.  

Tofu update: post surgery

On Tuesday, Tofu the bunny had surgery to remove a large bladder stone and yesterday the vet gave him the all clear to come home. Tofu wasn’t eating at the vet’s but if he was feeling depressed, going home might be good for him. If he didn’t eat during the night he would have to go back to the vet today. At first we kept him in his indoor hutch to restrict movement so he didn’t injure or bother his stitches but he had other ideas. He was stressed about being locked up and frantically looked for the way out, so we freed him. After inspecting his area a couple of times (to make sure it was just how he left it), he proceeded to spend most of the evening eating. He needed a little bit of encouragement but last night he ate: 1 grape 1 large bok choy 2 coriander plants 1/4 cup of pellets a few bits of hay Not bad for a rabbit who wasn’t eating! He wasn’t eating much this morning …
