    looking for calf manna in Southern Ontario

    Yeah, calf manna would not be something that I would typically feed to my rabbits, but I tend to make exceptions to the healthy bunny diet rules for dental bunnies. Some days, I'm thrilled that they still get excited about any food, even if it is bunny junk food. I guess by treat food...

    looking for calf manna in Southern Ontario

    Hi all. I have two dental bunnies who are having a hard time maintaining their weight, so I've been giving them a tiny bit of calf manna each evening (both are totally addicted!). Problem is, the calf manna supply that I was given is running low, and I've not been able to find it locally. Does...

    molar extraction experience ?

    <<Chloramphenical is a great antibiotic, particularly for deep infections because it passes through the blood/brain barrier, however, it does have a reputation for "loss of appetite".>> My rabbits have always tolerated this antibiotic well, and Chia has been on it before with no ill effects...

    molar extraction experience ?

    Thanks, Angieluv and Tonyshuman. Very helpful. I've not yet read Stella's story, but I will. I've briefly discussed molar extraction with my vet - he is very experienced with rabbits, but said he would not do the surgery. I have an acquaintance who has been pushing for me to have the molar...

    molar extraction experience ?

    Hi all. I have an 8yo Jersey Wooly who has two lower molars (one on each side) with overgrown tooth roots (they are starting to grow into the jaw). She is currently on pain meds (buprenorphine and metacam) and antibiotics (Chloremphenicol) + syringe food, sub-q’s, cisapride, etc. Has anyone...

    Extremely teary eyes - please help

    Hi all. I have an 7-8 yo jersey wooley rabbit with the teariest eyes I think I’ve ever seen on a rabbit. About 3-4 weeks ago, her left eye was tearing, so we went to the vet. The vet flushed her tear duct (it was plugged), removed a smallish spur from one of her molars and prescribed some...

    Rabbit Savvy Vet Toronto

    Hi all. I haven't posted in a while - I hope I am posting this question correctly and that someone can help. Does anyone know where Dr Robin Lane is now? I was using his services through one of the local clinics (Amherst), but when I called this morn to book Chia in for a recheck, I was...

    Questions about Baytril and nebulizing for chronic URI

    Hi Geoff. <<Don't know much about Tricide Neo... looks like primarily a Koi medication. May be just another brand of Triz EDTA, a solution that has an excellent anti-Pseudomonas effect. It does not tend to be absorbed systemically (at least when applied topically... can't say that's true in...

    Questions about Baytril and nebulizing for chronic URI

    Has anyone ever used Tricide Neo to nebulize a chronic URI rabbit? I have a 11-12 yo chronic URI rabbit, Jinx (neutered male, lop-eared), who has been on/off antibiotics for almost a year. Baytril seems to do the best job of controlling the infection, but the infection usually returns within 2-4...

    she only eat her veggies if they are cut into small pieces

    <<She wouldn't touch ner favourite treat, carrots, for ages after the meds were finished. At the time I didnt think too much of it, but after reading this I wonder if it was the flavour/smell of the meds.>> Interesting thought, hartleybun. I did notice that when she was on the meds, her...

    she only eat her veggies if they are cut into small pieces

    I have a 5yo spayed jersey wooly rabbit who will only eat her greens if they are cut into small pieces. She is eating pellets and hay, but we have yet to be able to restore her veggie consumption to normal. Her problems started about a month ago. She has been to the vet numerous times - Long...

    Fuzz is scanning

    Thanks for your help, Tonyshuman. I have found out from another list that I am on that we can get Meclizine here from a compounding pharmacy. I have a call into my vet to inquire. <<What about a more aggressive antibiotic therapy? Baytril is of a class of drugs that many bacteria have gained...

    Fuzz is scanning

    Just want to post an update on Fuzz. Since my original post, Fuzz has developed noticeable nystagmus (horizontal) and his head is almost completely tilted to the left but only when sleeping or eating. Otherwise, he looks and acts pretty normal. He seems to get around well and I’ve not seen...

    bizarre bunny behaviour

    Just thought I'd post an update to this thread - The vet removed two spurs from Fuzz's molars, one of which he said was quite sharp. Fortunately, the spur did not do any damage to any of the surrounding tissue. Fuzz is no longer humping, but unfortunately, the scanning has gotten worse, so I...

    Ebony is barely eating, back to vets 2mrw :0(

    Fuzz is scanning

    Last night when I got home from work, I noticed that Fuzz was scanning (head tracks to the left). The scanning is not constant, but occurs in somewhat short bursts. He also seems a bit disoriented. He's not rolling, but I've noticed that when he hops around, he acts like he is not quite sure...

    bizarre bunny behaviour

    bizarre bunny behaviour

    Thanks for the replies. I, too, think that pain relief is the most likely explanation for the increase inhumping. Despite the fact that he's still eating well and the humping seems to have decreased a bit, I've kept the molar rasp appointment for tomorrow. His mate is 12 yo and she's starting to...
