Event Details

By: Angela M Lennox, DVM, DABVP-Avian, ECM; DECZM-Small Mammal

Description: Rabbits commonly present with signs consistent with GI dysfunction; distinguishing these from actual obstruction, which may require surgical management, requires a thorough approach. This presentation helps practitioners identify this group of rabbits, and presents current thoughts on medical management of those not requiring surgery.

By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Understanding of the typical presentation of rabbits with GI dysfunction
  2. Tools for helping to distinguish which are more likely to have GI obstructive disease
  3. Protocols for both medical and surgical management
