      Sooo I need advice or help.

      my lion head she was seen in April for a dental procedure where they thought she had an abscess and took out some and put her on medication. For a couple months she’s been great high energy and lots of Binkys. This week she was drooling again and not eating well. I took her back and forth to the vet, first after xrays they where like we need to do another procedure. And then I took her home that day and she started drooling like crazy I took her back in and they said she had lots of fur and food stuck in her throat hence why she wasn’t eating. They pulled it out. She started having breathing problems and more drool I brought her back in. Then today they did her dental procedure and pulled out a tooth and some bone. They called me from the procedure saying it might be cancer. I don’t know what to do. They are going wake her up and send the bone for a biopsy. I’m so torn she is sooo young and has become a huge part of our family!! Has anyone dealt with this in rabbits?? I want to believe I can do something and this isn’t the end.

      Ughhh I’m so sorry you are going through this. 🙁

      Unfortunately your ordeal really reminds me of what happened with my boy Moose. He was only 1-2 years old, but had a rotten molar that caused an abscess. We treated that and then he needed another molar extraction… his teeth were just rotting and fracturing.

      I don’t want to alarm you or cause you to panic, but my Moose suddenly passed away after a few months of dealing with his teeth. He was always in very good spirits and recovered from his dental procedures so well, it was a shock to all of us. He seemed to be having trouble breathing the night he passed away. The vet did a necropsy and couldn’t find anything obviously wrong. I suspected it might be bone cancer, because bone cancer can manifest in the jaw first, and does occasionally occur in younger rabbits. I have no actual proof of this, as we didn’t suspect any cancers early enough to do any diagnostics.

      All of that said, Lion heads are prone to dental problems it seems. So I would recommend doing the biopsy and going from there so you know for sure. Try not to panic too much, as it could just be she has icky teeth.

      Yeah my heart is breaking. But we ordered the biopsy to be sure. Cause I won’t just put her down unless we know for sure. But I also don’t want stripe in any pain. She is always so happy and full of life.
