    Default Jasper is not well ud 12 June

    Jasper had a dental on Wednesday, his first in five months. He has not recovered well and the vet said he had an upset stomach and they had shaved him as heíd had a few wet poos.

    Anyway we are now on Sunday, we went back on Friday as he wasnít improving from the dental and wasnít eating much. He still isnít now.

    He has Zantac, emeprid and recovery food. I have some metacam which I started giving last night incase he has some sort of pain. Donít really know what else to do, heís not better but heís not worse so thatís good at least. Any insights??

    He has another appointment tomorrow morning but what else would they do for him if heís not improving with gut meds etc?

    I would certainly continue with the pain relief. I would also discuss with the vet, preferably the one who did the dental, what they actually found. If, for instance, he had a large spur which was cutting into his cheek, the wound from that might still be painful. It could also be that his mouth feels uncomfortable from the dental procedure itself, which will take time to resolve.

    I would have a good discussion with your vet tomorrow. I would also still top him up with recovery food if he's not eating much. Hopefully, whatever is causing the problem will get better in the next couple of days.

    Sending the poor lad lots of vibes.

    I am sorry that Jasper is not doing well after his recent Dental. Did the Vet tell you exactly what the Dental treatment involved ?

    Is the soft poo cecal or fecal ?

    Is Jasper Drinking ?

    They said he had one big spur and a couple of smaller ones and that there werenít any lacerations.

    The poos were I think cecals but not sure.

    He has just been trying to chew my radiator I really think they must have missed something and will ask them to check again tomorrow.

    He is a lot more fiesty than he has been which is good.

    Recovery food time soon.... he ends up wearing a lot of it

    So sorry to hear this

    I have found that sometimes the dental equipment can cut a little of the cheek tissue, and this in turn causes pain. A look in the mouth should ascertain if that's happening - occasionally needs a short course of antibiotics until it heals up.

    Does he like the Recovery food? My lot hate it and also end up wearing it!
    I tend to use their regular pellets whizzed up with some yummy organic baby food

    It sounds as though he may still have some oral discomfort. I hope that the Vet can identify what the problem is. I'd ask the Vet if there is any possibility of tooth root elongation. Some Dental Rabbits can develop elongated tooth roots (Skull radiographs are required to diagnose tooth root elongation), if the roots are elongated this can cause pain. Pain in the actual jaw bone rather than in the soft tissue in the mouth.



    Or it may be that his cecum is still very sluggish. Lack of long fibre (hay) in the diet can cause reduced motility in the cecum and it can initially present as Dental problems. It can also be a knock on effect of the consequences of Dental problems. Gut motility and Dental Disease are intrinsically linked

    Thanks Jane! He is definitely in pain. Found him in the hallway this morning stripping the walls of wallpaper and chewing door frames ........ well at least he feels up to doing that ! We have a vet appointment soon.
