    Default Occlusal Cysts in Rabbits - any experience?

    If not any experience, any info?

    I'm wondering if the Textbook of Rabbit Medicine has anything on them - Google suggested it might but obviously I can't read further without purchase. Other than that, rabbit specific research online is giving me nothing.

    Not an occlusal cyst, but I have had a few Rabbits who have had oral papillomas.

    I have the Textbook of Rabbit Medicine infront of me now but I cant, as yet, find anything specifically about 'Occlusal Cysts'. Can you post the link to the relevant part of the book that is available online ?

    Aw thanks for your reply Jane, tis very kind of you. I've just re-googled & didn't get the same as my last attempt (in November). If you could have a quick scan at page 80 sometime that would be fab (there's probably nothing there). Please don't rush though, I know you've an awful lot on your shoulders at the mo x

    On page 80 the only reference to cysts is to Meibomian Cysts (effecting the eye)

    TBH I don't really get why an ooclusal cyst was put forward - the mass actually is behind the eye. You've given me some positive direction though- going to look into Meibomian cysts now.

    Thanks ever so mch

    Sorry JB, only just got back (yet again!) from the vet ... I have the book if I can help at all. Also a few other books ...

    Is it poor little Boo? Has anything been diagnosed? So sorry xx

    From what I remember, meibomian are in the eyelids and not behind the eye.

    If this is what they are, they are less worrisome that any growth behind the eye ...

    Thanks MM. Specialist saw a mass on Boo's xray back when her issues with her tushy pegs came to light. None of them thinks its an abscess (thank goodness), an occlussal cyst was put forward as a possible explanation. Randomly I try & fail to look in to it. My vet has not seen one before & not got far with research either!

    I hope bun appreciated your visit - noserubs from me xx

    I meant to ask you - is it pushing the eye forward?
