Speedy is going to have Surgery!

The Time has come to decide do we keep trying to save Speedy's Left eye or do get Speedy's eye removed after talking about it this weekend and there has been no further improvement in the healing of the eye So we have decided that the best thing for Speedy is surgery ..... This will mean no more eye drops or eye gel and no more pain killer to stop it from hurting once he has recovered from the surgery.
What is the point in trying to save the eye when he can't see with it and it is causing him pain....there is no point.I don't know when it will be as I will talk to the vet tomorrow about the cost and when it can be done.
So once he has recovered Not only will Speedy be The Cheeky House Bunny but he will be A Cheeky Pirate and Buccaneer too!

  1. That sounds like the best solution. I once had a cat that had somehow badly damaged his eye. The vet tried to save it but it didn't improve and it was obviously painful. We had it removed and it totally changed his life back to being relaxed and playful again.

  3. The surgery is probably the best option for Speedy. I'm sure he'll feel a lot better once the painful eye is removed. Let us know once the surgery date is fixed.

    Love you, sweet boy!

  11. I am sending purrs Speedy's way! If the eye is hurting him and it's not getting better, it's best to remove it for sure.

  14. Tough decision to make, but I'm sure Speedy will make a cute pirate. Surgery was never an option for Weasley, because of his age and infirmity. Speedy is young and strong, so hopefully this will have him sailing the sea in no time at all!

  15. I think you are doing the right thing. If he cannot see out of it, then removing it will just make one less thing to get infected or hurt later. I had a blind golden retriever---she got around so well and never ran into a tree..knew just when to turn a corner! and she had NO eyesight--at least Speedy will still have a good eye....and lots of love from you and family! My best for sweet Speedy.

  16. Oh Speedy, you will look super cute with an eye patch. Sounds like a good decision. Sorry Speedy has to lose his eye, but at least it won't cause him pain anymore. He will be fine without it.

  17. Oh Speedy! me could not believes how happy and cheerful and like a puppy my old hairy slobbery sister Bob was after they removed her eye! There is different options (for dogs), like glass balls the vet can puts in so it looks like their eye is just closed, and stuff like that, but we asked which would be the easiest and fastest to heal and that was just getting it removed (along with the tear ducts) and stitched closed. It only took 3 weeks for it all to be healed up!

  25. Speedy, you will be the most awesome rabbit pirate ever! I hope you wear a cute little eye patch. When Fuzz was going blind from his cataracts we were given surgery as an option but decided against it. I did some reading on the internet and lots of people said that their blind rabbits did just fine. I know you will too, because you are so CHEEKY.
