Hi all,
I have got 6 babies rabbit who were a month old yesterday, they go out in the run during the day now but about 3-4 days ago mummy rabbit got a bit excited, tried jumping out the cage, fell and her nail scratched one of the babies eyelid on the inside.
It did bleed a little bit and i cleaned it up straight away and ever since it just looks sore and yesterday morning and this morning its been closed shut, and its all crusty! ever since it happened i have bathed it in cooled boiled water.
Im guessing the scratch has turned into an infection! but what do you think?

If the eye is now crusty and closed and you have already been cleaning this eye with cooled boiled water and nothing has improved it is time to take this little one to a vet for an objective assessment.

The Kit needs to be seen by a Vet today

If the infection is left untreated the Kit may end up losing the eye.
