Abstract

A 6-year-old, female spayed rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) presented with right paradoxical vestibular signs. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed and findings were consistent with an ischemic infarct of the cerebellum. The patient improved gradually and was free of clinical signs at the time this article was written. To the authors’ knowledge this is the first case report of a paradoxical vestibular syndrome in a rabbit secondary to a presumptive ischemic infarct. Strokes should be included in the differential diagnosis of central vestibular syndrome in rabbits.
