Eye infections are a common problem in pet rabbits and often develop because of an underlying problem such as dental disease or an injury to the eye.
During Covid-19 lockdown, your veterinary practice might not be able to offer routine procedures such as neutering. Find out how to keep them safe.
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.
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.
