    No - not even when my vet "messes" with it. I believe thats a good indicator (if I understand my vet correctly) its not an abscess

    J&B when I finish work tomorrow I shall have a look through my nursing books for you.

    Could your vet forward a picture of the x-ray to a specialist?

    When you said previously that you "like to vet a vet" I didn't realise it extended to offering such challenges to test them out! It's good that she gets specialists involved too, my initial vets just shrugged their shoulders. I'm offering her some challenges with Eliza but I think your dilemma is rather more complex. I hope you get some answers and that they are not as scary as they may seem at the moment.

    That's very kind - I'm not hopeful you'll find anything though & you have your own life & 2 poorly buns to look after

    My vet did send the xray to specialist at the time. It will be interesting to see what the next xray says - can't afford to have them with each dental though so that will be dental after the next one

    I can't offer any information, but am sending lots of vibes for Boo. I did look online when Occlusal Cyst was first suggested for Boo, but found nothing useful. It might be worth asking the vet who suggested this possible diagnosis what made her think of Occlusal Cyst. If you knew the diagnostic clues, you might be able to work online from that perspective and then come up with alternatives.

    I really, really wanted to change my thread title - but that would have made the lovely people who contributed look stupid rather than me. Anyhow in this rare instance it wasn't me but my previous vet who got the name wrong, I'm pretty confident of this as I wrote it down but then also spoke about it one to one with OH present. No wonder research was getting us nowhere .


    odontogenic cyst. A cyst formed from tooth material no less.

    Not so uncommon in dogs, seen in rabbits on rare occassions
