Leporine Dysautonomia

By Caroline N. Hahn, DVM, MSc, PhD, DECEIM, DECVN, MRCVS, Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Clinical Neuroscience, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh

Leporine dysautonomia occurs in rabbits and wild hares, and fatal cases have been reported in the UK. Gross lesions are similar to those of equine dysautonomia, including gastric distention, colonic impaction, and weight loss. Histopathologic changes in the central and peripheral nervous systems are almost identical to those found in horses, cats, and dogs.
