|Comment||I wanted to give a quick update and give my thanks. George has had a ultrasound his liver looks good and after getting his red blood cells up he liver enzymes look much better. He diud a barium swallow it show a lesion of about the size of silver dollar 38 mm. I could be cancerous but given his age the vet feel it is more likely an ulcer. He is currently on cimetidine, sucralfate and Yunnan Baiyao. I just brought him home today he is eating and stretching and relaxing. He will be seeing the vet to decide on ling term treatment and to recheck his blood.|

I've lived with companion rabbits for more than 35 years, and consider them members of my family. I can answer any questions about the biology and health of rabbits, from the commonplace to the unusual. But please note:
THE INTERNET IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEEK HELP IN AN EMERGENCY.
Find a rabbit vet at www.rabbit.org/vet for immediate help, and don't risk your bunny's life by spending time asking questions online! If you can't get in touch with your vet, read these Emergency Sick Bunny Instructions.
For all the best, most accurate rabbit health, care and behavior information, visit The House Rabbit Society.
I have been rescuing and rehabilitating domestic and wild rabbits for about 30 years.
I have written articles for many rabbit rescue publications, as well as for the veterinary journal, Exotic DVM.
I own EtherBun, the internet's largest listserve dedicated to health, care, and behavior of domestic rabbits.
