I swore I wouldnt come back but I really need your guys invaluable knowledge!

One of our rescue buns with 7 kits (at 3 weeks) has developed a constant sneeze and has weepy/red eyes.

I have checked her genitals and they seems swollen (almost like she has plums)

She is still eating but panting heavily (which is not uncommon for her tbf) she is bright but not as fiesty as she normally is,

She was fine this morning, she got caught on a sticky fly catcher that my son had knocked off and went on a mad flight around the garden/shed, she calmed rapidly and was fine when we put her away,

Now is she showing signs of myxi?

I do hope not :(

Sadly the symptoms you describe fit with Myxi :cry:

I hope I am wrong

I really hope so too?

Do I separate her from her babies and keep her well out the way of the others?

Ive never had any dealings with myxi ever (only rabbits ive seen in the wild) so really only know about it. (edited as in my state of panic im not making much sense)

Thank you Jane

I would not separate her at this moment in time. But she does need to be seen by a Vet tonight who, to be honest, will probably suggest PTS assuming the Doe is unvaccinated.

The Kits should be eating solids now ?? If the worst happens for the Doe then it is possible for the Kits to survive. As to whether they are already incubating Myxi remains to be seen. They might have developed a passive immunity from the Doe, which could last for about 5 weeks

Nothing I can add of any value other than to say that I'm keeping my fingers crossed for mum and babies. Really hope it's not myxi.
