Image Laryngeal foreign body
This image shows the oral cavity of a rabbit that was presented salivating and dyspnoeic. There was a loud respiratory noise. He had a history of dental disease and most of the crowns in his teeth were missing. The symptoms suggested a laryngeal foreign body so the rabbit was anaesthetised and a piece of hay that was lodged in his larynx was removed. There was significant sublingual oedema that subsided. The rabbit recovered from this incident but only because the owner presented the rabbit promptly.
Image ECMAScript program Nasal foreign bodies
Nasal foreign bodies are not unusual in rabbits. The typical history is of sudden onset sneezing and a unilateral nasal discharge. Occasionally an abscess over the nose will form. Careful examination of the nares may show the tip of a piece of hay or a plug of material. In some rabbits it is possible to pull out the foreign body during the consultation. Other cases may require anaesthesia and even endoscopy.
