    Thank you everyone. He's now eating and pooping but head tilt no better, possibly worse. If no better tomorrow, they'll try a different antibiotic.

    Aww thank you Ruthy, I remember Honey Yes he's on antibiotics and has also had painkiller and gut stimulant. Does Bailey have daily meds? xxx

    There are Meds they can have for the dizziness, is he on anything for this? I think there's 2 different meds for help with headtilt. Luckily Bailey's infection at the moment isn't too bad and he's just on chlophenical anti-bacterial ear drops.

    I know honey was on all the following;
    Metacam and Tramadol some days if very painful
    Penicillin injections - Daily
    Zantac - Daily
    Stemitil - (for dizziness) Daily
    Marbocyl - another anti-biotic given daily

    Injections were given daily for 3 weeks xxx

    Oh yes sorry I forgot that one but I'm pretty sure he's on something for dizziness as well. Thank you for the info. It's such a worry when they're ill, isn't it? xxx

    Good for him, eating & pooing. Head tilt can be a stubborn thing. News of his appetite pleases me . He definitely sounds in good hands too xx

    These meds are what my Harry had when he had an ear infection.Daily penicillin injections were vital for him.Marbocyl was also very useful.

    Lots of luck.x

    As well as Ruthy, RoxyRoller88 has loads of experience with ear/head tilt rabbits.

    She is very active on a Facebook Group - it's called "Head Tilt Hoppers".

    There's also some good info here:
