Thread: Noisy breathing when eating/cleaning

  1. #1

    Default Noisy breathing when eating/cleaning

    We have noticed slight noise when Mischief is eating/cleaning himself. However we woke up this morning and it is definitely noisier. Sounds almost like noise a pidgeon makes!

    We rang the vets to take Mischief down but we would be scraping the cash together for the visit but have no cash to treat him!

    So we decided we would monitor him for today and maybe take him tomorrow. Not the decision I really want to take but OH was really stressed about it.

    He was running around OH's feet shaking his ears really happy to see him and is eating and drinking. Just the noise has got noisier. He was sneezing yesterday couple of times like he had sonething stuck up his nose. Has anybody experience of this please?

    Sorry not been on here much. I'm struggling with neuralgia constantly now and hardly sleeping myself. Can't believe this all happening at once again!

    Can you share a video? Might be easier for people to offer advice if they can hear it.
    I can only add my own experiences - Odin has had this since we got him but it appears to be due to allergies. It can get really bad if he has had his nose in snuffling dusty things, and sometimes he apears to get stuck just stuck up his nose. However, monitor very closely, because another option is snuffles, which can deteriorate very rapidly. If it starts to affect his eyes or you see snot in his nose or on his front feet then you might just have to suck it up and get him to the vet asap.
    I think teeth issues can potentially affect breathing too, but there are better people than me to discuss that.

    If he acts fine for now...Think. Have you changed any cleaningproduct? Is it dusty hay or bedding? New detergent or fabric softener? New flower? Is he overweight?

    Any possibility of teeth problem (root enlogation and making problems in nasal cavity)?

    Could be nasal congestion due to his recent RTI. Check the fur on the inner sides of his front paws. If it is wet/sticky that is indicative of him wiping away nasal discharge. He may need to go back on to abx unfortunately. x

    Thank you. I will try and upload video. He is flopped at moment.

    He had a lung infection which he has been treated for and just come off diuretics.

    I've booked him in for Tuesday when may be able to scrape together money for abx or more diuretics if needs be. Just won't be able to afford any substantial costs.

    If we had any money in the bank he would be at vets today. We have enough for the vet check up and travel and that's it! Still paying off recent vet costs with family so our money has gone for this month

    His breathing sounds fine rest of time and he is acting normally otherwise. It's just when he eats or cleans himself. It could just be lung scarring maybe? I don't know if that can cause him to make this noise?

    Could maybe vapour treatment be suitable for bunnies possibly anyone? Just wondered if clearing his airways may help?

    He has put on weight again. That could be an issue. He is such a piggy and eating everything in sight! Think will need to cut down pellets again. Thank you x

    Checked his paws and they look clean. His nose is wet though. Will take him to vets again then. We can just about afford antibiotics. I'm just worrying in case he has a blockage or something and needs anaesthetic again x

    Maybe give them a call and talk it over first, they may be happy just to give you a repeat course of abx rather than needing to see him again in person, if he's had a recent issue. Would save travelling him and possibly a few pennies.
    Most vets are happy to arrange payment over time if they are possibly able to though, so don't be afraid to explain the situation and ask for help. Even if it is just offset for a couple of weeks to get you to next month.

    In my experience respiratory infections can be really hard to get rid of so maybe it is that again that has flared up and he needs to be on antibiotics again
    Can you perhaps do a video consultation with vets so they can hear him and see him as it was so recently he was at the vets? Perhaps this is cheaper.
