    Default Fiver Has a slight Headtilt

    I am wondering if this is EC, his back legs are a bit weak as well? He is eating fine. Fiver is not the strongest of Rabbits coming up to 4.

    Aww poor boy, it does sound likely it could be EC especially if he is an uppy earred bun. Hopefully you can get him seen quickly, if it is EC prompt treatment makes a big difference. Lots of vibes for Fiver

    It could be EC or a middle ear infection. A Vet consultation is needed to try to establish what is going on and to obtain the appropriate treatment.

    Some Vets will immediately treat for both conditions- Panacur, Metacam and an antibiotic. Other Vets prefer to obtain more evidence to support a diagnosis of EC by taking a blood test before starting Panacur. Skull radiographs/CT scan are needed to diagnose middle ear disease.
