He has had his Myxy Injection but he hasnt had a vhd injection because my vet doesent reccommend it.. I havent bathed it or aything because im too scared too touch it incase i hurt him :( Anybody know what it could be? Does he need to see a vet? Thanks (:

When was he Myxi vaccinated ?

Are his ears unusually warm ?

Is it just the one eye ?

All Rabbits need vaccinating against VHD

He was myxy vaccinated about 3 weeks ago, his ears are quite warm.. Well im not sure why but my vet said that Bugsy wouldnt be a candidate for the vhd injection and he said its because its something to do only with baby rabbits.. =/ Yes it is just the on eye, the other one is sore too but not as bad as that ?

I think your Vet needs to update his/her knowledge................. :?

Is it the same Vet who gave the Myxi Vaccination ?

Have you checked your Rabbits genitals to see if they are inflammed ?

Is he sneezing at all ?

He does need to be seen by a Vet but personally I would not want to consult the one who appears to have little knowledge about Rabbits.

If the Vet did not administer the Mxyi vaccination correctly ( ie 10% into the dermis) then your Rabbit will not be fully protected. And of course even correctly vaccinated Rabbits can contract Myxi, usually the nodular form and they stand a good chance of responding to treatment.

Your Rabbit may have a simple bilateral conjunctivitis. But the warm ears are a worry as this *might* indicate that it's Myxomatosis. Hence my asking you about checking his genitals for inflammation.

So in short I would get your Rabbit booked in to see a Bunny Savvy Vet ASAP.

Me too :( My mum will take him too the vets 2moro but unfortuantely he will have to go to the vet who isnt rabbit savvy =/
He seems too know what hes talking about though sometimes because he told me that he hates it when people dont get their rabbits myxy vaccinated because once they get myxy they proberly wont make it.. ohh i dunno wish i had a rabbit savvy vet around here,,, Thanks though :)
