        Hello everyone,

        I am in a tough situation with my sweet bunny. He has constantly been drooling for 2 months and fecals look odd. I took him to the vet and we did fecal sample test, blood work, skull x rays and she also checked the inside of his mouth really well and we found nothing. He loves his hay and wants to eat but he just cant because he’s drooling so much. His drooling is getting worse and worse. I noticed that his poop has large pieces of hay and i am not sure if this is because of hay not being digested or him not chewing properly. If you have experienced something like this please let me know I am starting to slowly loose hope.

        The next step is doing an ultrasound and maybe a CT if we cant find anything.

          I’m very sorry to hear what your rabbit is going through. Whether it’s a CT or perhaps putting your rabbit under anesthesia just to do some more through exploratory work that is non-skeletal would both be likely next steps. If something was just lodged in the mouth, it wouldn’t really show up on an X-ray easily.

            How well did the vet look in his mouth? Was a deep dental exam done under anesthesia? This really is the only way to see if there are tiny spurs or other issues with the teeth. Even then, it can be hard to tell. Sometimes the tiniest of points can cause problems. Your post does not mention having his molars burred or trimmed. Perhaps it would be more cost-effective to have a dental done before resorting to a CT scan.

                Yeah the mouth exam was done under anesthesia. The vet did it twice and found nothing. We did all the dental work done and now i’m debating if I should do a CT because I am not sure if i can afford it.

                  Sometimes the points are super small and hard to see. We’ve had buns on here before that this has happened to. I think the vet simply ran the burring tool over the teeth just to make sure they were smooth (since they couldn’t see the points). I’m sorry this has been so frustrating for you. Honestly though, I’m not sure what they would be looking for by doing a CT scan. As Wick said, there could be a foreign object lodged somewhere. Perhaps an abscess could cause a problem if it was pushing on a salivary gland. I don’t know.

                  I agree with LBJ. There can be stuff that doesn’t show up on skull x rays, the inside of the mouth needs to be examined with an otoscope. Since rabbits have a big tongue and a small oral cavity, the bun needs to be under full anesthesia for the vet to be able to see everything properly. I would start there before going for a CT.

                      Yeah we already did the mouth examine twice under anesthesia and found nothing.
