Tooth Problems in Rabbits
So Ive been talking about Smudges watery eyes for a while. Update: The vet thought he had a URI, so he got some antibiotics. Watery eye went away, but as soon as he was off the meds it came back. So on Monday, they are gonna sedate him to look at his molars.
I was researching some dental issiues with buns molars, and from what Ive read he probably has one of 3 things: a molar spur, over-grown molar roots, or a blocked tear duct.
I dont really think its a molar spur, because hes still eating crunchy foods, and not favoring soft food or drooling or anything. But he is favoring the left side of his mouth when he chews, wich is also the same side as his watery eyes.
So Im guessing its an overgrown molar root, or a blocked tear duct. The treatment for a blocked tear duct is pretty easy and quick... They just have to flush it, so Im REALLY hoping that thats all it is.
But if its an over grown molar root, how would that be treated? Would it be expensice? Im worried about that, because it usually occurs in older bones since their bones are thinner, and well... Smudge is a little older of a bun. Hes really healthy, and from what I can tell his bones are fine, and hes only about 6 so hes not THAT old, but I still worried.
Whats everyone elses opinion on it? I know Ill find out on Monday, but I want to know what to expect. And please keep him in your prayers... Im always nervous about pets going under anethetic. :[
