Wryneck @ headTILT

Wryneck, a serious problem in pet rabbits, is a mild to severe twisting of the
head that causes incoordination and sometimes total incapacitation. Wryneckis most often the result of a bacterial infection of the inner car and is not a true
neck problem. It can be treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs,
but the outlook with these cases is always guarded.
Unfortunately, wryneck often results from abscessation of the inner car (and
sometimes the brain). Penetration of antibiotics into the diseased area is often
restricted or impossible, resulting in mild improvement, temporary relief, or
no improvement at all
