    In last consultation vet looked at eyes teeth and ears and listened to guts and all were normal. We are now on day 3 of medication and she's happy as Larry eating and climbing. The head bobbing started on the Monday and we went to the vet on Friday. It started after I had been away over night. She has no balance issues. It's really strange as everything else is totally normal. The vet said she wanted to see her back on wed or Thurs if no improvement I think there could be slight improvement but hard to measure as she's totally normal aside from the Bob. I'm reluctant to put her through sedation to go through an x-ray as she seems happy and normal and this could stress her out and also be costly

    I've noticed it happens more when she doesn't recognise where she's going or there is something unusual on the floor

    From what you've said here I would guess it may be connected with her eyesight. However, the video seemed to indicate either neurological or ear infection.

    Bunny update: back to the vet yesterday. Didn't tell us much. Gave us another weeks antibiotics and stemetil and said if no improvement by early next week then they want to X-ray the skull and test for EC. Vet won't treat for EC without test as it suppresses immune system and if it's not EC can make other things worse

    OK understood. I think another week on abx may not show massive improvement, but hope you're happy with what your vet's doing.

    Did the Vet make any mention of the possibility of the symptoms being associated with a loss of vision, as I mentioned in an earlier post ?

    There are certain conditions that can have an effect on a Rabbit's eyesight. Vertical head bobbing can indicate a degree of loss of vision.

    No the vet looked in her eyes and said they looked normal nothing she could see. Someone Elsey mentioned treating for EC and this is something I'm tempted to do although the vet didn't want to without a 120 test to see if she has EC and a 95 x-ray of her head. I personally feel it's a waste of money but from the outside their is nothing physically won't with her so don't know what other options I have
