That's very sad :(

I don't think the vets should be a last resort, it should be the first thing you do for him, perhaps not at the weekend but definitely on Monday. Perhaps you could try bathing his eye with cooled boiled water and a cotton wool pad?

Hope it works out ok for the little fella :)

Poor bunny :cry:

I agree with Thea, the bunny needs to see a vet next week. Being a Nethie, there's a good chance the runny eye is caused by teeth problems. If it's an infection you will probably need antibiotic eye drops, and perhaps a tear duct flush. None of these things you can do yourself.

Hope the little one improves.

He certainly needs to see a vet as nethies are so prone to teeth issues.

In the meantime if you have any Fucithalmic or Tiacil drops they may help ease the problem.....but only as an interim alternative.....if it is stemming from a tooth issue then the cause needs treating, not just the symptoms.
