I posted a thread the other day with some pre surgery questions but now I need some help with aftercare. Obi had a tumour removed from under his arm yesterday, we got home and all was fine, he was drinking and eating. That was until about 11pm when he managed to (what I thought) ripped his stitches open. So I bandaged him up and he’s been very lethargic since. We went to the vets today, vet said that stitches are fine and Obi probably bit through a sac of accumulated blood and other liquid, he put a mesh type of bandage over the wound and it has looked okay since. Obi was wiggling around and jumped into his carrier fine so vet wasn’t too worried about his supposed lethargy. However, ever since we returned home Obi has been very lethargic, he won’t get up himself to eat/drink so I have to hand feed/give him water. He will only eat soya yogurt and bits of watery fruits. When I take him out to check up on him, he does move around and he has no porphyrin and breathing seems good. I’ve been giving him 0.5mls of Metacam once a day to help with pain. Is this normal? I’ve been reading other people’s experiences and it seems like everyone’s rat was okay and up and eating/drinking after a few hours.
