Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a diagnosis of some sort? Basically 2 months ago my 5 year old Netherland Dwarf developed a sudden red lump on his nose. We thought it could be burn from the radioactive as he likes to be near them or some sort of sore so we put some sudocrem on. After a week we noticed it was getting larger so we took him to a vet who said he’s sure it’s myxomatos and there’s nothing he can do and gave us some isaderm which helped with the swelling. The isaderm didn’t really stop the spreading just the swelling and redness, I done some research on myxomatos and I was sure it wasn’t what he had, he was still him usual self showing no signs of pain or illness and the lump was very red as opposed to grey lumps I had seen with the photos of myxomatosis. After the cream ran out we returned to a different vet and he had a look. At first look he said it’s definitely not myxo. I asked about dental problems or an abscess because I know they are very common in this area, he tried to squeeze it and he said it’s hard so he thinks it’s a tumour and they can test it but it will be very expensive. He prescribed antibiotics which had no affect and I did some more research. I read online abscesses are usually hard because rabbit pus has a thick consistency, and they are so common on the cheek area whereas a tumor on the face is rare. I have no idea what to do as the vet wouldn’t even look in his mouth. I managed to get some more isaderm but it’s now rapidly spreading. Some days it’s really crusty but sometime it’s moist and it was bleeding the other day where he is excessively cleaning it. He doesn’t seem in pain and is his normal self, but I have noticed now he having trouble chewing and one nostril is very small from the swelling so something needs to be done ASAP!! I spoke to another vet who said they can do an anaesthetic and look in his mouth but still so expensive and I’m low on money and paid a lot for 2 vets to tell me they’re not sure. So want to be certain of what it possibly could be before I go ahead. Please tell me your thoughts of if you have seen anything similar. I also have another rabbit and she is absolutely fine so it can’t be anything contagious.
