I saw my rabbit laying on the ground with his head down to the side and his eyes partly rolled back only for about 2 seconds though. when i would touch him he would be normally laying again. This happned about 2 or 3 times the fast few days. Is this an ear infection? Im probably going to go to the vet on friday.

Have you had a look inside his ears to see if you can see any wax?The eyes rolling back in his head sounds worrying.I would take him to the vet ASAP

it sounds like he is flopped out. This means a really relaxed bunny.

Did it look something like this?

I agree with the flopped out bit, its really scary if you've never seen it before. Almost looks like they are dead.

Yea it did. Maybe its not an ear infection because he goes to his favorite spot and flops out :p So its not uncontrollable.

Is there a test at the vets to see if he really does have an ear infection?
Just in case

does his eye looks a bit glazed and wiggle about? it might be that he's asleep, i've got a video of my bun doing it, it looks hideous! :lol: i must upload it.

not sure about a test though, sorry. :wave:
