    My own vet is back from hols and has been researching and agrees it sounds like an adenoma of the adrenal gland.
    Due to her age and the fact that nobody in the practice had performed a similar op we aren't going to be able to confirm though. He thinks anything surgical would be for clinical interest and not for the benefit of Faline.

    So we're going to try a hormone suppressant on Monday that he uses with the local wildlife parks small animals and ferrets etc. He doesn't think it will do any harm but we'll see if it improves things. Hope it does. Can't believe with all the health problems rabbits can get something so daft is causing so much stress for my poor elderly buns. I've been so lucky with them all their lives.
    I expect the implant is Suprelorin

    Hope it helps, the Rabbits I have cared for who were given it all responded well x

    It's a bit hectic at the moment but when I get the chance I shall have a root around in my files

    I hope the hormone suppressant works for your little one.
