Pain Medication for Rabbits

       For Paws does not prescribe pain medication for rabbits. When I asked about this I was told that only older rabbits may need it. You should talk to your rabbit savvy vet for pain meds before the spay or neuter operation for any age rabbit! Make sure to give BID (twice a day) at a modern dose!!

       There is a study that shows that giving Metacam post-op (spay/neuter) will help recovery times decrease by almost 1 day with females and a bit over 1/2 a day with males. Metacam can also help reduce swelling and inflammation, helping prevent possible adhesions. This can be key for females because after the OHV (ovariohysterectomy) adhesions between the uterus (and other internal parts) and GI tract, can make the normal peristalsis movements abnormal. Normally this does not show up right away.

       The reason that some vets give for not using Metacam is that it's an extralabel use for rabbits. They will point to FDA's 21CFR530.3, this is the U.S.'s FDA CFR (Code of Federal Regulations), title 21, chapter I, part 530 (extralabel drug use in animals), subpart A, section 530.3, ". . . use in species not listed in the labeling . . ."

There are many studies that show Metacam is safe to use in rabbits.

       "For Paws does a great job with rabbit spay/neuters, and is one of the most affordable places for rabbit spay/neuter in the entire Bay Area! I often refer people to For Paws to have their rabbits spay/neutered when I am doing outreach at rabbit adoption events. I volunteer with Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, and For Paws does most of our rabbits, and we are very pleased with what a good job they do! Rabbits recover quickly after their surgeries at For Paws, and we haven't had any problems with incisions becoming infected or coming open. They won't do the surgery if the rabbit is too young, or if they think the rabbit is not in good health - this is a big comfort to us, as we know the vets use good judgement. If you have a rabbit who needs to get fixed (they will live longer and won't get uterine cancer, and boys won't spray the walls!), this is where to go!" - yelp
. The Rabbit Haven Director Auntie Heather

Thanks to this wonderful clinic for all they do to benefit the animals they serve - They are such compassionate, dedicated people." - yelp
