Is your rabbit breathing noisily or faster than usual? Are they sneezing? Do they have discharge coming from their nose and/or eyes? Any of these symptoms could indicate a problem with their lungs or airways.
There are many different conditions that cause red, inflamed, sore eyes in rabbits; some are easily treated (such as eye infections), but others are harder to cure (such as dental disease)
Several different conditions can affect rabbit’s eyes including: injuries, infections, tooth problems, tear duct problems and infectious diseases such as myxomatosis. To prevent any permanent damage or loss of vision, problems should be taken seriously and treated quickly.
