Regions Now: Rabbits - an oblique look at head tilts

Online , Online , Gloucester Gloucestershire, GL2 2AB

brought to you by Southern region

In this installment of the Regions Now lectures, John Chitty will discuss the management of the common presentation of head tilts.  This course will cover stabilisation and will progress through diagnosis of the more common diagnoses (middle ear disease and Encephalitozoonosis) and their management and treatment. Many of these cases do not completely respond or may relapse. We will also discuss the longer term management and husbandry of rabbits that may have reduced mobility or that may show increased neurological signs when stressed
