Vet Record Case Reports – blog highlight

A recent case report we published in the Veterinary Record Case Reports Journal has been highlighted on the journal blog, here.

This case was a very unexpected complication during what should have been a straightforward intubation, with faecal matter (poop) causing an obstruction in the upper airway. As part of the study we were performing CT scans, which allowed us to visualise the partial obstruction (foamy looking material identified with orange arrows). The rabbit’s nose and incisor teeth (bright white) are to the left and the neck is to the right. This work was a collaborative effort between a radiologist, a pathologist, a lab animal specialist, two veterinary students (Sarah and Amy) and a technician (Mel).
