Available for RACE approved CE credit if watched from 10:30AM-11:20AM PST on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
Rabbits are often presented for the sudden onset of anorexia, lack of defecation and different degrees of gas build-up in the gastrointestinal tract. In this presentation I will summarize the approach used by the author to deal with rabbits with anorexia, including the complete diagnostic workup (diagnostic imaging and common and less common blood work performed) and the potential treatments given. References will be made to novel studies that focused on commonly employed drugs in rabbits, such as maropitant, metoclopramide and buprenorphine among others. Surgical disorders that are commonly observed will be also discussed.
