I know, I am like a broken record :oops: But I just had to tell you that The Inspector has had such a good day today :) He has only needed half his Metacam dose, he has NO PUS in his left ear and his right ear is improving too :)
But best of all Morse is really back to his old self. His decline was so gradual that I hadn't realised just how quiet he had become :cry: But today I can honestly say that we have Morse back :)

We dont know what the future holds or what his next lot of blood tests will show. But for now I am just so happy that Morse is 'feeling' better within himself.


I'll shut up now.............. :oops: :oops:

I am so :D

I honestly thought he was dying a couple of weeks ago :cry: he was so, so poorly. I dont know if he is ever going to fully recover, but just seeing him look so much brighter and being 'Morse' is such a relief.










I'll let you into a secret, Morse is almost a 'Jack Rabbit' to me...............

Ooof. Horrible. And scary too. But your vet sounds brilliant and sounds as though she loves Morse almost as much as you do.

I'm sure she'll take very good care of him and do whatever is best.

We are giving the systemic treatment another 2 weeks as C says that there is a definate improvement but she fears we are almost at 'as good as it can get' stage without opting for surgery. The problem is that Morse's ear canals are VERY narrow and the pus is very thick. Having said that C thinks my 'homeopathic' eardrops (Manuka Honey UMH +15 in an Olive Oil base) are definately helping, she said the pus is markedly reduced and thinner.
The other complicating factor is a 'deformity' in the ear canal of Morse's right ear, its rather like an extra flap of cartiledge and a magnet for infection.

Morse didnt have more bloods taken today as C feels that the comments re his raised Liver Enzymes were a bit of a Red Herring and that the Enzymes that were raised were not 'Liver Specific'............. :?

My poor brain is having trouble assimilating all this. I do wish I were more intelligent..............

Its one of the great mysteries of vet medicine - confuses the heck out of us - but yes, some liver enzymes are raised for entirely different reasons, and so are not indicative in any way of liver function. Liver function tests are a whole different thing....

Jane, I don't know if you've thought about this or if Christobel has used it before but while I was at my vets on Tuesday there was an English lop in with very bad ear infections. His ears are so long that they struggle to see down his ear with the scope.

I got talking to the owner and also my vet (as you do :) ) and found that having exhausted every type of antibiotic. That he had, had something called ear wicks put in the week before and that they where being removed that day.

Ear wicks are like very small tampons which are inserted into the ear, once it's been flushed with saline, and then filled with antibiotics until they swell they are then left in place for a week before removal. The fact that the antibiotic is right up against the infection and that they aren't being messed about with in that week seems to work wonders with clearing up the infection.

Apparently it's quite a new idea but has been used in humans and is getting good results with rabbits.
Thought it might be another option for you to try.
He's also done that op in the past and had good results from that aswell.

Simon quite often takes cases from Bristol so if very rabbit savvy.:)
