Could you get him to a PDSA clinic, or a Blue Cross clinic? The cost of dentals could be way less.
I do hope you find a happy solution to this. I know how it feels to have this fear hanging over you. Hugs Hugs

Thank you Dee Hugs

Our vet actually does take on PDSA pets as well. How does this work? Do they supply funding for all of the treatment or is a one-off thing? At this point I am desperate and willing to enquire about and try anything.

Not too sure. You could discuss with your vet or contact the PDSA direct.
Hope it works for you. Maybe Google the PDSA and see whats what.

I Googled PDSA and I can't seem to find any eligibility criteria.

I might ask my vet. I honestly don't know if they cover either rabbits and/or dental issues.

You don't sound snappy, you sound defeated.

And that's understandable, given your frame of mind at the moment - and I'm sure many of us would feel the same in your situation.

But (and PLEASE don't take this the wrong way Embarassed) I think you're giving up on him to soon.

There is a massive community of rabbit lovers out there, some with deep pockets who know what they're getting themselves into with dental buns.  I agree with Zo, I've seen rabbits in much worse situations than Mr Mo rehomed, or taken into a rabbit sanctuary.

These places are out there.

Bear in mind too, that should he be rehomed and then the new owner find themselves in a situation down the line where they can't keep him, most rescue centres have a clause where they need to be returned to them.

We will all do what we can to help you explore all avenues Hugs

I'm sure you have to be on benefits to qualify for PDSA.

Oh Hun, Im so sorry to hear this.

I agree with everyone else hunni - there must be a solution that can be found.

No one here is having a go at you babe, we just all care about both you and Mo, and together perhaps we can find some way to work things out.

There are owners out there that will take on dental bunnies - I am one of them. When mine go to the bridge its quite likely that ill take on another dental/poorly bun because I love being able to give them that chance and I'm lucky enough that I can afford to. There are others out there like me :-). But.... it might not come to that hun, there may be something we can do to help.


Lets all put our thinking caps on.

In the mean time I'm sending you all my love x x

Has your vet spoken to an expert? I know that a while back Frances Harcourt Brown was doing some experimental root canal treatment for buns in mo's position. It may be worth making contact to find out if it was successful and worth considering.

Thank you guys. I am sorry if I came across rude Zo, it is just an awful position to be in and Thumper2001 is exactly right - I am totally defeated with it all Sad

Chloe did respond that she knew of a few vets who do dentals whilst they're awake. I'm wary of this but I would at least like to find more out about it? To me they sound quite distressing and painful for the bun - but if Chloe is recommending them they might not be so bad. I'm waiting to hear back about those.

In the mean time, I might have a google of Rabbit Sancturies and see what comes up.

I wish there was some way I could keep him but I just can't keep these payments up - so if surrendering him to a shelter or similar is what I have to do then I will do that - for him.

Thank you everyone for rallying and your kind words of support Hugs

He was an RSPCA bun. I would NEVER send him back though - the conditions in his foster home were questionable to say the least. I wouldn't want him going back to that kind of environment. We did make a complaint after we'd got him home.

Just get your vet to contact her and ask for advice. http://www.crablanevets.co.uk

I would never doubt your decision and don't believe anyone else would.
The idea of a second opinion wasn't to suggest your vet isn't bunny savvy just that a specialist vet may come up with different ideas.
Hence to contact Frances maybe the best move at the moment.HugsHugsHugs

That would be a 'pulpectomy'. I'm not sure if Frances is taking referrals at the moment given that she has now retired but she *might* still be giving advice to vets.   I'm pretty sure that Marie Kubiak at Manor Vets at Edgebaston also carries out this procedure, which I think can only be undertaken if it's in the lower jaw.

sorry your having problems with a dental bun, I understand how you feel Mabel is also a dental bunny, we got her seen by specialist last time as having molars done was getting to frequent, so she had a lot of work done including x-rays etc

has your bunny had any x-rays taken?
