Teddy is off to the vet this evening. He hasn't been right since his last dental. He sometimes sticks his tongue out as though he has something stuck in his mouth and he's trying to get it out. He's also becoming increasingly fussy with his food, completely refuses to eat any kind of hay or grass (although will eat hay cookies). I'm worried about his weight as he's 1.6kg on my kitchen scales (so not the most accurate) when he should be over 2kg. Over the weekend I heard some teeth grinding so gave him some metacam but something is definitely off with him, although he was charging around quite happily this morning so it's really difficult to tell. He had a steroid injection about 4 weeks ago now for his head tilt, I'm worried that his liver or kidney function may be impacted but I've no idea if I'm being paranoid. I'll have to leave diagnosis to the experts!

Thanks all! Will update once he's been. He does his best dead rabbit impression at the vets and I always have to convince the vet this is not normal [emoji23]

Just back from the vet. He's had his teeth looked at and no issues, and she couldn't find any problems with his abdomen. It could be tilt related so we decided to try a vetergesic injection to see if that helps, if not then further tests will be needed. The vet suspects the issues associated with the tilt might be progressing.

I'm a bit worried that he might be in pain and if it is due to his tilt that we may have come to a point where it's either constant medical management or PTS. He actually weighs less than I thought, he's 1.48kg. When I considered the ear op he weighed much more than that and although he's still bright and runs about I don't know if he'd make it through that kind of operation at this stage. But I do tend to have a habit of catastrophising everything in my head when it comes to Teddy so hopefully he will be okay.

I’m glad there weren’t any problems with his teeth or abdomen, but I’m sorry that he’s still a worry :cry: I’ve not had experience of a bunny given vetergesic but I understand that it can have quite an effect on making them sleepy. Topping up the vibes and hugs xx

Hi all,

He seems quite bright this morning, last night he was pretty out of it which I expected. He's normally bright in the mornings anyway (breakfast time!) so it's a bit hard to tell how much relief he's had. I wish I could stay home and monitor him all day but I have to go go work soon!

Saying that just as I write this I think I heard a bit of a tooth grind so now I don't know what to think.

I've booked a check up for him tomorrow at the vets, it's annoying that I can't be at home today to see what he's up to and whether he's grinding his teeth at all, but I can check on him this evening, he's an indoor bun so lots. Of opportunities for me to bother him. I'm wondering whether to ask for blood tests to see if there's anything else going on with him. I've also been recommended a rabbit savvy vet by a friend so wondering if it's worth going for a second opinion or whether they'll just tell me more of the same.

I have a camera so I can watch my bunnies to check that Frosty is eating, I think it was £30 from Amazon and itís been money well spent :thumb:

It is fun to spy on them! Mine spend most of the afternoon snoozing on and off!

So I took Teddy back to the vet this morning, everything seems good in terms of temperature, heart, lungs, gut sounds. He's going back in a week for a recheck, in the meantime I have been tasked with trying to fatten him up, so I'll be feeding him more critical care daily than I've done so far and will up his nuggets a bit. If he doesn't gain weight in the next week we'll do further tests.

Thanks guys, he's loving the extra critical care and baby food [emoji23] I just hope it works and that it's nothing more sinister, but we'll cross that bridge if we come to it
