Wasn't the spay this afternoon? If so then you are panicking. It can take 24 hours for her to want to even start eating. It is best to just leave her overnight and not fuss with her - make sure she is not in a drafty area either.

Females do take longer to recover - could be 48 to 72 hours for her to feel better. Boys do bounce back quickly.

{{{Vibes}]} Dump the litter box and vacuum everything-that way your poop/pee watch will be more accurate. And wait until tomorrow later to start panicking I'm currently on the poop watch tonight too, so sending {{poop vibes}} your way

They are to easy to worry over!
It is a but harder on the girls so normal that she's not doing much yet. I do want to ask though, did she eat prior to surgery? ( important rabbits do). Her normal amount of food?
Also, did they give her pain meds after? Some vets use a long lasting med so they don't send you home with any. But they may give you some in case.

I hope you see her rally soon. I agree with others though, this is normal at this stage. Baby is lucky to have attentive human
parents fussing over her. : )

How is Baby today? If she still doesn't have much of an appetite, try offering some fragrant herbs like mint, cilantro or parsley.

It is difficult dealing with a post spay bunny. They just look and act so pitiful. Olivia was pretty bad after her spay. I spent the night laying in her condo with her, we honestly thought she was going to die. She was super lethargic and looked to be in a lot of pain. She was eating and hopping around some by the next day. Drama Queen Olivia.

It can definitely take a full 24 hours, and I ditto having some fresh herbs on hand and scatter some hay around. What has also worked for some bunnies is gently poking (tickling) them in the mouth with some soft hay or herbs. Sometimes out of annoyance they'll take a bite, causing them to continue to eat.

no eating yet, I caught her sipping some water though. they used long lasting meds so she didnt need any, and said if she was in pain to call. she has moved around a little more but is still sleeping a lot. I am going to try the mint or cilantro since that is one of her favorites.
