Investigation and treatment of upper respiratory tract disease

Sneezing and nasal discharge are two of the most common presenting signs noted in rabbits, and are often seen together. The differential diagnoses for sneezing in a rabbit range from the very common upper respiratory tract infections, dental disease or nasal foreign bodies, to the much rarer nasal tumours or allergies. In addition to a thorough history and full clinical exam, CT scans are proving to be the gold standard investigation technique to determine the underlying cause of sneezing in rabbits. Once the cause of sneezing has been determined, medical treatment or surgery, or a combination of both may be indicated. This session will discuss the underlying causes and how to diagnose and treat the more common, and the more uncommon causes of sneezing and nasal discharge in rabbits.
