LEADERS: Bam BinkyBunny JerseyGirl LBJ10 LittlePuffyTail LongEaredLions RabbitPam
Hi all! We rescued a sweet little Jersey Wooly a few weeks ago. Our intent was to get him neutered and bonded with Indy our 3yr old. Indy has been overall a very healthy bunny, Nero is turning out to be a medical nightmare! After we got him home we realized he had a lump on his side (which turned into 3 by the time he had surgery). We got antibiotics that didn't seem to help much, so the vet went ahead with the neuter/abscess removal. It has been a couple weeks since the initial surgery, and we are faced with more surgery on Friday. I'm scared to be putting him under for the second time in a month. Luckily, he is a quick healer and the neuter went fine. But we have a returning lump in the same general area as the other that were removed. Initially, the vet asked if we wanted to biopsy them but since they didnt look cancerous we opted out. Is this normal for an abscess to return and to return so quickly? If so, what causes them to come back? And if its something we are going to have to deal with for years to come, where do we go from here?
Thanks in advance!
