    Perhaps dispersal of the cystic fluid on a regular basis relieves a feeling of pressure/discomfort ? Whatever it is that is apparently helping Boo to feel more comfortable long may it continue !

As she is coping so beautifully they decided managing it was the preferable option for now. If her quality of life deteriorates we'll have a rethink. Removing her dodgy teeth would have involved removing part of her cheekbone & possibly her eye I think they made a good judgement call. She is currently drug free & just has certain points on her eye & nose pressed 3 times daily which is supposed to help with drainage

    Has your vet seen this before or did the instructions come from the specialist? Sounds a really good plan - I always prefer conservative where possible.

    I guess nothing I turfed up was of any use (but I found it interesting looking!) - let me know if you'd like me to run it by my specialist as I shall be visiting when my rabbit has an op in a week or so's time
    Please vaccinate your rabbits for RHD2 as well ..

    Vet has only seen them in dogs, specialist seen a few in rabbits. Thanks for the offer of a second opinion of your vet but I'm 100% happy with mine. I'm so grateful for the care she is receiving

    Thanks for the info - I've gone a bit scaredy cat about delving too deep but will take a look at your links when I'm feeling braver. When my bunnies are at Crab Lane (they weren't when I posted this thread) I can breathe a huge sigh of relief - research feels optional...its the only place I can totally trust they will know what is best for my rabbit medically, I certainly wouldn't know better (unlike with some "local" vets I've encountered in the past)

    Haha, no way was I offering a second opinion I know you're really happy with your vet

    I was simply going to ask whether they had seen it in rabbits and if so, how often.

    That is always worth so much. Boo has certainly got A* Veterinary care. And the wonderful care that she always receives from her 'Mum'
