abscess

If this was the case you would be able to gently cut the fur near to the skin bit by bit to slowly get the this off. I have come across this before but not on the face. In the rabbit that I examined and helped, the lump was huge and its owners were very concerned, but could not afford a vet. The other reason may be due to a growth that is not normal. In this case, you should only allow a vet look at it and treat it.
She isn't an outdoor bunny, purely lives in the house, in her own cage. Her cage is cleaned weekly - but maybe we should do a thorough cleaning using natural cider to kill anything that might be causing it... Thanks for the suggestion. If anyone else has any ideas, please do let me know!

A few days later I had developed a periodontal (gum) abscess below my rear right molar - the tooth in front of the questionable wisdom tooth. - my dentist drained the abscess (yes, sorry... gross) and put me on antibiotics. (Diagnosis was a periodontal pocket which has since healed quickly.) - this cleared things up (severe, life altering head throbbing pain is gone thank god) and things were back to normal. - that was a week ago.
If given choices, they often choose to eat what they are accustomed to eating, or the foods which taste better. Foods high in fibre often have poorer palatability. If given a choice of rabbit mixes, rabbits will often pick out foods high in carbohydrates, high in simple sugars and high in fat, these foods are often extremely low in fibre. Thus they will select foods like grain, nuts, and cereal over more fibrous foods like hay.

A new class of students start Thursday and then my usual class is back on Friday. Our 8 lb 5 oz rabbit developed a huge abscess in her dewlap late last week so had surgery to have that removed today. She's eating and drinking already, only four hours after surgery. She has to stay inside for the next two weeks so that should be interesting. She's reasonably toilet trained, but not completely!! The cat is not impressed either, considering rabbit is bigger than she is.
She usually has fresh tuna, rabbit, or mackerel for dinner and packaged food for breakfast in addition to the usual biscuits. I guess I could try changing the packaged stuff and the biscuits first. Although, if she was responding to the doxycycline you would think that indicates that the infection theory is correct. I will post the info if I find out anything more.
She stopped eating (I was feeding her daily) early in the week, and w/in 2 days, she had developed sores and was not doing well. My neighbor took her to the vet the following day, and I was told that the cat's kidneys (both) were as hard as a rock and the cat had a bad odor as well. The vet euthanized her, believing that she was too far gone and possibly may have had cancer. It just seems bizzare to me, as the onset was so sudden and devastating. I know the neighbor has rats by the barn.
What a mistake that was. My husband never cared to ask what is the safest way of treating an abscess in the front leg. I would have asked the doctor to confirm what bacteria is he infected with, so the correct antibiotic, if needed, is given. So pissed!!! He was given the injection, then my husband was told to give Orbax; another type of antibiotic; I guess a double whammy. Why not just confirm infection with bloodwork and have the abscess lanced and drained? I would have paid the money.
It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
Hi, I have just diagonized with GERD only but negative to H.Poly bacteria. I have to tried variety of medicines (including homeo) for GERD but nothing works. Usually I don't blurp a lot. But there is lot of pain (not pain exactly but sort of strange feeling on the upper part of the stomach and doctors say this is common due to GERD) But I must say that I felt a lot better with had the candida related drug (Called Threelac bought from US). Usually I feel worse during the winter.
