1138. Rectal prolapse in a rabbit

Today I saw a case of rectal prolapse of over one week in a rabbit. The lady brought her in as there was bleeding. Stools were hard.

"The rabbit has to eat daily and passes stool frequently. When I stitch up the anus after pushing in the rectal tissues, I need to take out the stitches after 3 days."  

7 days would be better for the rectal tissues to heal.
