Struggling to breathe is a life-threatening emergency. Take your pet to your nearest vets if they are struggling to breathe, call them on the way to let them know you are coming.
If your pet is in pain, contact your vet, if they are in severe pain, take them straight to your vet. Severe pain often indicates a serious problem, even if it the cause isn’t obvious.
Have you noticed your rabbit scratching? losing fur? developing dandruff? It’s possible they could have a skin parasite (fleas, mites or lice).
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.
Ticks are blood sucking parasites that attach to, and feed on pets. Ticks that are removed quickly and correctly don’t usually cause problems.
