    Default Nebulising

    Daphne is having to be nebuliser twice daily due to inflamed nasal passages. She's got steroid (salbutamol) and antiseptic (F10).

    Hopefully she'll improve otherwise she'll need xrays and swabs.

    She's is at least still bright, alert, active and hungry.

    in regards to nebulising I'm putting her in carrier with a towel over the top.... is this suitable?

    I don't know about nebulising but it does sound sensible - I know they can be done in carriers & a towel is what I'd use. Hopefully someone with experience will be along very soon but in the meantime loads of vibes for your beautiful Daphne. I hope Phoebe is looking after her xx

    She has been to our exotic vets (respected & well known one in the UK). Her chest is clear which is why they want to start with anti inflammatory, steroid and antibacterial treatments first.

    J&B nice to "see" you again.

    The carrier seemed to work and she wasn't too stressed about it, happily munched food for 20 mins while I done each treatment.

    I've always used a carrier for nebulising. Hope the treatment works well for bunny x

    Sorry to hear that Daphne is a bit poorly. Re Nebulising, it is fine to construct a 'Nebulising Chamber' as you have done.

    Some Rabbits are OK with me using a mask though, my Dara being one of them



    Sending lots of vibes for Daphne and I agree with the others, you are very much missed on RU x

    Most of mine who've needed it I could use a mask, like Jane has. With one who needed longer treatments I created a chamber out of a plastic box. I made a hole for the nebuliser piece and a few holes for ventilation in the lid. This seemed to be more effective than a carrier.

    I really rate it, even just sailine can help them when their congested. I've also used it in rats and guinea pigs.
