Abstract:
A two year old male rabbit was presented to Department of Surgery and Radiology, College of Veterinary Science, Khanapara with a swelling on the lower jaw since one month. Pain was elicited on palpation of the lump close to the mandible. Skull radiography revealed osteomyelitis of the mandible and a fluid filled cavity originating from the mandibular cheek teeth on right ventro-lateral aspect of jaw. The condition was diagnosed as a dental abscess. The surgical procedure consisted of lancing the abscess, aggressive surgical debridement of infected soft tissues and bone, marsupialization of the site under general anaesthesia and repeated wound flushing for two weeks. Bacterial culture of purulent material collected from abscess identified Staphylococcus spp. Rabbit also received systemic treatment with Enrofloxacin for four weeks.
