My friend as just phoned me in a panic, one of her rabbits as got blood coming from her nose with a discharge also, I have told her to o straight to vets (which she is doing now). Any ideas she hasn't been vaccinated against VHDas she took her in of a friend and she was pregnant so she was going to get her vaccinated in January.

I know - I hadn't got the heart to tell her (and now I feel bad) as it was only a week ago when two bull dogs were in her garden and attacked and killed some of her rabbits.

If there is discharge as well as blood it may be a severe URTI. Nessa had blood from her nose with hers, she also ended up with nasal abscesses from tooth root problems.

I would have thought if the bun had blood frm VHD it wouldn't still be with us :?

Fingers crossed for her x

It could be that she has a URTI and has ruptured a blood vessel in her nasal passages as a result of lots of sneezing

It could be a FB lodged up the nostril

It could be elongated tooth roots which have penetrated the nasal passages

It could be an 'impact injury'

Whilst VHD is a possibility if the Bun is apparently 'well within herself' and not febrile then IMO VHD is unlikely.

Hope she will be OK xx

I took about 10 days of intensive nursing but we got Nessa through a similar problem. Initially the vet gave her a 0% chance of survival but Nessa had other ideas :) I hope this bunny makes a good recovery too, sending lots of vibes x
