    Can rabbits get allergies?

    just to update, after applying the tresaderm and putting him back in the bedroom for a while, his ears no longer appear red and he isn't flinching or jerking away when i touch them. so i have to assume either the tresaderm helped or there is something about the living area that set off that...

    Can rabbits get allergies?

    here again to ask about jojo. his pen is in a bedroom isolated from the rest of the house because we have cats and jojo is incontinent (old age i assume, he just wont use the litterbox for his pees anymore so he is on puppy pads) but he gets time to run around supervised each day. i noticed...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    well jojo's poops are back to normal and he's got the bounce back in his step so i think i can say he is recovered :D thank you so much JBun for helping me through this stressful time and providing resources. heres a pic of the boy in good spirits :)

    Recurring Head Tilt

    he has eye drops but the vet said it looked like the beginning of cataracts but he can still see relatively well. i guess he is old after all.

    Recurring Head Tilt

    update: his poops got more solid at the vet, of course...he loves to scare me. still mushy but not diarrhea, going to discontinue baytril. the vet confirmed his eyes are getting a little cloudier but he hasnt totally lost his eyesight so there is that. hope as he eats the critical care he also...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    thanks for the info. i am just counting down the minutes until the vets office hours are open again. i wish there was an emergency overnight vet in the area that would treat rabbits :( right now he seems willing to eat more critical care. it is weird because the bowl of it is right there for...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    it went from mushy cecotropes to actual diarrhea. i will be calling a vet in the morning, right now it is 4am so no one is open. should i make him drink some water in the meantime?

    Recurring Head Tilt

    the poop is starting to look like diarrhea despite taking the fresh greens away and giving him just hay, water, and critical care. im wondering if the baytril is the cause at this point. will have to call a vet tomorrow and hope there is an opening...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    so its been a little bit, he is pooping more consistently but im kind of worried about the state of his poop right now. he does do his regular poops but theyre still very tiny. he has been doing a lot of cecotropes though and i am not sure what this means. the vet recommended some leafy greens...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    he has started nibbling the leaves off of cilantro, just not with his usual enthusiasm so i dont think its enough to keep him fed. i figured i would back off the critical care when it looks like he doesnt need help eating and his poops are back to normal.

    Recurring Head Tilt

    the past two times he had head tilt, it didnt actually get this bad and it cleared up in two weeks. this time i am not taking any chances and i will keep him on the baytril for the full month even if his symptoms subside. i have no idea what the cause was before but if its just lingering e...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    jojo's tilt is improving quite a lot. his head tilt is a lot less visibly pronounced and his eyes stopped rolling in his head. he still is having balance issues but im hoping that will clear up with time and treatment. right now the big issue is that the medications caused him gi stasis so hes...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    while his condition remains mainly the same, i am a bit concerned that he has stopped pooping, even though i have been feeding him critical care. i think i will call the vet tomorrow since this worries me, it might be a blockage or something and i ran out of his meclizine anyway. is there a...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    thank you and im still very scared that he could take a bad turn again but for now its just good to see him feeling a bit better. have to appreciate the little things while he's still here after all :) jojo is a huge sweetheart, he never ceases to amaze me

    Recurring Head Tilt

    spoke with the vet the other day and he said he wouldnt prescribe azithromycin without first seeing how the panacur does after 30 days. but i didnt want to make jojo wait a whole month for that while lying on his side and miserable. the good news is today jojo figured out how to stand up, and...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    thats the main concern id have with it and why the vets seemed reluctant to prescribe it. if it hurts him really bad i dont want his last moments to be that sort of agony. i do want to consider it though because it's hard to see things getting better when he's like this. he's only had one dose...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    i brought it up multiple times to the vets on our visits, but they seemed reluctant to prescribe it. i can call the third vet tomorrow and ask him if he would consider it. i hope that it wouldn't cause more suffering than what he's already going through if he got side effects?

    Recurring Head Tilt

    we took him to the vet again today because we were unsure the cause had been investigated properly, and were surprised to learn that prior bloodwork did indicate that he might be fighting an e. cuniculi infection. the vet prescribed him panacur but did not seem optimistic about his condition. i...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    a few positives: he still eats his critical care at feedings eagerly, he has started pooping again. today he did a cecotrope and when i offered he ate it. he tooth purrs when petted, and his "up" eye seems bright and alert. negative: he seems unable to stand. i can prop him up between my legs...

    Recurring Head Tilt

    this morning i got up to find him limp and barely responsive, so i rushed him in for an emergency appointment. they found him to be stable, but they gave him subcutaneous fluids and took some samples from his inner/outer ear to see if they could identify what was causing his infection and change...
