Abscess in rabbit

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess in rabbit


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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!

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hi and welcome, thk you for the great write up on your kitties condition, the Vet is definitely on the right track wth eosinophilia granuloma and the sores a result of allergies, the allergen highly likely to be the food, so rabbit is a good choice!! Only thing I would change is if it's avail in wet form rather than dry? Dry foods themselves carry so many pesticides and chemicals that are also allergens, my one cat breaks out every time he eats a dry food.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn it is most often seen in people with HIV or in HIV negative but immunosuppressed or those with low T helper cells. Also, those with leukemia and lymphoma. HIV negative normal individuals in Japan can also get this. Have you been tested for HIV? If HIV negative have you had a complete blood count? If so you would see very high red blood cells too. The diagnosis can be supported by the finding of eosinophilia but a skin biopsy is necessary to establish it.
Avatar m tn 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.
