You need a prescription for pain meds. A vet must write the prescription or call it in/email it to the pharmacy you want to use.
Metacam is the preferred drug after a spay. It has fewer tummy side effects than buprenorphine (another painkiller). It also tastes good to rabbits so it’s easy to get them to take it.

You can absolutely use apple sauce to make the buns take their food more willingly. There’s sugar in fruit, but that can be a good thing when a. bun has just had surgery and is feeling out of it.

Your mother wouldn’t have to take our words for the importance of pain management in bunnies. We could provide her with links from trusted sources. I’ll alert the site’s owner (Jen) to your thread, I’m sure she’d be happy to reply to any questions your mum might have.
