    Keep him dry as musch as possible. You can use Plivasept or other antiseptic shamoo to wash off. Vets have it.

    Photo of our "result". He was in no pain at this point. But first few days until meds kicked in. Uhhh

    Have just emailed another vets for a second opinion.
    If it is her teeth it certainly doesn't put her off her food!

    Yeah he got his fur back. It took time, lots of TLC, he has quite regular dental appointments. It is up and down with him. At this point, he refuses to eat hay. He just eats herbs, pellets and fresh veggies. Personaly I would rather risk anesthesia for skull x-rays, dental work, then having bun in pain or discomfort.

    That's good to hear.
    I agree about the anaesthesia, I just worry because of her age.

    I'm taking Bungee to see an approved RWAF vet this afternoon.
    She's still dribbling and has lost a lot of fur from under her chin and neck.
    Really worried about taking her

    So took Bungee to see the vet yesterday. They have found a lump/growth on the roof of her mouth and are sending her her for a CT scan. Not entirely sure what this will tell us, but they seemed to think this was the easiest way to get a proper look without anaesthetic.
    Bungee had 3 vets look in her mouth, and they all said they had never seen this before in bunnies.
    I am so angry that this wasn't picked up with our usual vets. She only went there last Monday and I'm beginning to think that they probably didn't even look in her mouth.
    She was so good, and came straight home and ate her tea. I have noticed over the last few days that she isn't really eating much hay. I imagine it is uncomfortable, but she doesn't seem to have a problem with her veggies and pellets. I've left her a hay cookie to nibble today, which might be easier than long stems of hay.
    I'm worried that if this lump grows it might choke her.
    So scared for her.

    Oh gosh, what a worrying time for you and Bungee

    Hopefully the CT scan will give you some answers. My girl Illy had a CT in 2020 when she was 10 and they only needed a very mild sedation to get the images they needed. It'll also give you indications of things like arthritis and her heart, so it's a useful scan to have, though pricey.

    I'm glad you've got a better vet looking after her now. You can also ask RVC Beaumont Sainsbury for a second opinion/consult on the CT scans etc if you need it.

    Have you tried adding some warm water to her pellets? I know she's not having issues with them yet, but my bun Illy seems to really like hers softer, even though she still eats lots of hay. Hay cookies also sounds smart! If you're worried about her fibre intake, you could also top her up with some fibreplex paste on her pellets?

    Wishing you both some good luck with the tests x
    Chinook and Illy are my wonderful buns

    Crumpet and Elmo, you'll always be my best friends x

    One rabbit, similar age than yours had a tumor in mouth. They managed with meds and only soft food. Pellets with watter. I would also opt for Selective Fibafirst (30% fiber).

    Thank you so much.
    We took Bungee for her CT scan on Thursday. She was apparently very good and sat very still, so didn't need to be sedated.
    I have just spoken to the vet about the results and he said it's a soft tissue mass, which seems to have his own defined structure, so should be able to be removed, as it doesn't seem to be effecting anything else. It's not something that that Vet practice can do, but he is going to refer us to to another vets, which we have used before and we really liked.
    I've just ordered her some Recovery and some Fibreplex - thank you also for the tip about her pellets.
    She really isn't eating any hay and her poops are very small which is a worry, so I will start with the recovery and fibreplex as soon as it arrives.
    Thank you for all your help, it's so appreciated.

    So our vet has said that this isn't the sort of operation they could perform, so now it's a case of finding an experienced exotics vet. If anyone can recommend one we would be very grateful.
    Also, any tips for keeping Bungee chin and skin dry please? 🙏
    Many thanks x
