Poor rosie.

Post by xLilyRosex on Sat Apr 06, 2013 4:07 pm

My poor girl rose has had a continuous health issue going on for over 6 months now, shes had swobs and antibiotics shes now having penicillan injections because the antibiotics is not working.

She keeps getting a wet bottom which i am also having too keep her fur around her bottom trimmed. she keeps getting dry crusty horrid patches on her nose which bless her looks ever so sore, she had a penicillan injection nafte xmas and it got rid of the nose problen until last week but the bottom keeps on becoming wet now and again which with cutting the fur is fairly under control.

The vets dont seem too think theres anything more they can do, they dont wanna do blood tests on her so i dont know what else can be done, do i keep on having penicillan jabs every few months? or is this in the long run not a good idea? Ive changed her litter, they get cleaned out everyday, ive changed there hay too some very exspensive hay thats meant too be better they do love it Very Happy, but it still keeps coming back i just feel ever so sorry for her bless her heart.

Any advice, has anyone gone through this??

Get well vibes please guys for rose. xx

Have they said what it is ? as it sounds like a urine infection if she is on penicillin and that can be treated.

Have you tried a different vet? A second opinion couldn't hurt.

When Thumper was a young thing she had a problem and the vet I was using at the time couldn't help. I took her elsewhere and they fixed her up. Needless to say, I stuck with the new surgery....

What's her diet?

I wonder if a longer course of a milder antibiotic might be useful. Quite often the symptoms are knocked back, so the treatment stops, but it has not been long enough to get rid of an underlying infection.

I just thought about when my guinea pig was on antibiotics for a UTI and got an upset tummy. I know it's not quite the same, but similar. Can't antibiotics cause a tummy upset?

Maybe the prolonged use of antibiotics is upsetting her tummy?

Thanks all, its a bacteria infection that the antibiotics wernt getting rid of all together she went on anti biotics four times the last time i told them enough was enough and i wernt happy keep on giving her antibitics that wernt doing anything, she had vet check ups and each time had 2 weeks of anti biotics then it came back Sad so she was on the anti biotics long enough, they then put her on the penicillian as she had swobs which found out it was a bacterial infection that the anti biotics wernt sorting out. Its just heartbreaking and i just want her better shes obviously in pain with her nose, ill try and pop some pics up i took some today and you can see her nose and how sore it looks.

I have antibiotic injections for my snuffles at times, when it has flared up. I have them for two whole weeks after all of my symptoms have gone - if I don't it comes back very quickly. I've not had to have them for a long time now, almost a year I think.

I have an injection every 3 days and Humum does them at home so I don't have to keep going to the vet.

Have the told you what bacterial infection it is?

Snuffles is a general term for an infection of the upper respiratory tract (i.e. the nose rather than the chest). It is important to keep it under control because it can travel to the chest and once it has it is an awful lot harder to beat and can cause pneumonia. It is often caused by pasteurella, which is what I have. A lot of buns carry it but most never suffer from it, mostly it becomes active when a bun's immune system is depressed for some reason. My Humum can often predict when mine will flare up as stress brings it on. She tries to prevent it by keeping my stress levels low and supporting my immune system as much as possible.

I have echinacea or dried coneflower (clicky) as it helps reduce stress. I also get nebulised with F10 solution and Bisolvon powder, which helps get the medicine deep into my airways and keeps the mucus nice and runny. Mucus in buns is often quite thick so keeping it thin so it can run out of the nose is vital.

I would ask your vet about Bisolvon - it can be put in water, sprinkled on food or nebulised.

Also ask about nebulising - many people with snuffly buns find this really helps.

I would also ask for a long course of injectable anti-biotics (the one I have is called Alamycin) and get them to teach you how to give the injections. It's very scary at first but well worth learning Thumbs Up


You could always print this post and take it with you Laughing so they have it straight from the bun's mouth. If they are not willing to listen to you and investigate what you ask, find a different vet - I would not be here if ours wasn't so open-minded Thumbs Up

Having seen the picture on the other thread, I'm not convinced that is common snuffles.

Whereabouts in West Sussex are you and can you travel to get to a rabbit savvy vet?

Oh Bless her but the penicillin injections should sort that out as it's about the best.

Hope her nose get's better soon xxxx

Poor Rosie. It sounds like pasturella (although you probably already know that by now)!

Im afraid I have no real experience of it, ive had snuffly buns on abx now and again, but never anything chronic. Sparky is a snuffles bunny though, im sure she can give you lots of helpful advice. She now has a nebuliser that seems to be keeping her ticking along nicely. Im sure shes already dropped in on this thread by now though. Smile

Lots of vibes for her, anyway :huge:
