Old female rabbit has "breast" tumours

 
 
 
 
 
Dec 28, 2012  4.57 pm. Spoke to owner who wanted a second opinion.

The vet had taken a biopsy, checked under the microscope and had diagnosed tumour. Anaesthetic consent form needed to be signed and as the rabbit is 10 years old, the owner is worried. As to the $1,000 veterinary costs, I explained that much depends on the surgery time, blood tests and histopathology tests and any other medication that the vet would do and the costs could add up.

The vet had lanced the "infected tumour" and the rabbit stopped eating after being fed some medication. However, it was active and eating when medication was stopped. I advised review and if the tumours were small, the surgical costs  would be much lower. Will see him tomorrow 9.30 am.

Hi Doc,

3 years ago I brought my rabbit to your clinic to clear matted fur. Now I want to bring it to you for medical attention again.
Rabbit was diagnosed to have 2 cancerous small breast tumours about 2 cm. I need your opinion and about how much for the surgery ? The young unexperienced vet nearby my house quoted 800 to 1k !!!!
Also,when is the earliest appointment I can make with you?

Regards
