    Default Slobber, excessive salivating

    Hello everybunny!

    SO Brko had his dental februar 4th. He is happy eating hay, happy taking NSAID. BUT He was drooling for 3 days ALOT-prior vet visit. Vet has noticed he has a bit inflamed skin, I was silly billy to forgot ask if he needs special care for that. So I cliped mated fur as much as possible.

    At this point he is not drooling like crazy anymore. I am putting Bepanthen cream on it and after theat I scater veggies or pellets or something, to occupy his mind.

    He is botherd by his skin,fur and has started to overgroom where he can reach at the chest.

    Before I call the vet again- I would ask you guys. How long it usualy takes to get better? Shoould I ask the vet for antibiotic cream to increase the healing process? As it does not look nice. It is red, inflamed, some parts withouth fur, some cliped. I wish the vet would have shaved off wet fur then.

    I have only one photo as it is hard to do. Bunnin one hand, phone in the other. On the photo it does not
    look as bad as it is. But I did cliped fur after the photo, and more when my boyfriend came home. It is easier with 4 hands.

    Sorry, only just seen your post, it looks as though there may be infection present. Probably bacterial, but maybe fungal. I hope the Vet can help x

    Back from vet. He is on antibiotics now as well. I will closely monitor. Keep it clean, dry as possible and if needed we are back.

    Hopefully now you have clipped the fur, he is no longing drooling and the infection is being addressed the effected area will heal and his fur will regrow. He’s a lovely lad

    Bleeeeh. Called the vet first thing in the morning telling everything and ask if I can bring the bun tonight for light sedation and thorough clipping, shaving fur as it is worst then yesterday. I cand shave off everything as I'm scared of hurting him if he fidgets. He is so botherd by skin and that little mated fur, that he is overgrooming chest and paws. Luckly they can fit us in and in 4 hours he will be under vet care.

    I'm hoping they have cone of pride or satalite. As he must be prevented from licking, grooming. Otherwise it will just go worse, not better.

    I'm terribly clumsy but I have looked in DIY cone for rabbits. I have bandages and old shirts that can be sparred, so that I can padd something on neck.

    Poor boy.

    At least he is eating hay, veggies, pellets, drinking from bottle (I took bowl away for now), poopin, peing. So that is a good thing.

    So for now I'm doing my best to prevent as much as possible. Scatered bits of pellets, put them also in snack ball, sprinkle herbs in hay, scater veggies around and now he is napping. he just napps, eats, overgrooms.

    Oh that poor bun.So we are back from the vet. He got his skim cleaned wich was painfull but quick. And now he had double the dosage of painkillers to every 12hour and the same with antibiotics. As he has very inflamed, flaky, crusted skin in pretty large area.

    Adition to that we have special antiseptic shampoo to put on and leave for 5 minuted and then rinse it off. Every day, if possible two times per day. This will be battle I can see. SO it takes two of us in the evening and weekend, but during the week only at the evening.

    And Bepanthen on skin after drying.

    forgive me Brko for that torture. He is not a happy boy.

    Oh and no cone for him as I was unable to get one small enough.
