Treatment of chronic eye infections in the rabbit can be very unrewarding with topical ophthalmic preparations alone.
It is now accepted that flushing the large nasolachrymal duct punctum to remove accumulations of pus is an essential adjunct to the topical therapy.
This procedure is usually well tolerated by the rabbit under sedation and local anaesthetic eye drops.
The angle and lengths of standard ophthalmic cannula are incorrect for this procedure.
Veterinary Instrumentation's Rabbit Lachrymal Duct Cannula is designed especially for this procedure and is available in two sizes, 19 gauge and 21 gauge or as a set of both 19g & 21g.
