Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Thank you for your quesiton, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you. I have a question before I can help you properly. Can you see muscle or pink tissue though any of the skin wounds?
If you can't check it then I do think the safest thing to do is have the emergency vet check it. Rabbit bites with the front teeth can go very deep and cause damage or trap infection. The wounds should be cleaned properly and if done so quickly then antibiotics and other expenseive problems can be avoided. If you are able to control her to look and the wounds are just superferficial (no pink muscle showing throug) then simple soap and warm water washing is all that is needed. I'd suggest seeing the vet now given the circumstances and her nervousness. It could save a lot of hassle, stress and money later. If you are able to clean the wounds DO NOT put human over the counter antibiotic ointment on the wound, if she were to eat this it can and often does creat e a fatal diarrhea. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more quesitons, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
They are correct that behavior problems are significantly reduced with being spayed. They themselves may have a 50% survival rate but that indicates to me that they do not feel confident in this surgery and are not using current protocols. I'd try to find a vet who is comfortable, when you do that person will have a success rate the same as cats and dogs. We operate on rabbits of all sizes and have never yet lost a healthy rabbit and most sick rabbits do fine as well. I feel with current protocols survival rate is 95% or higher.
