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.
