Generally what are the first symptoms of Myxi?

What did those whose buns had Myxi notice first?

What looked like watery eyes but with both eyes effected and hot slightly thickened ears.

Our rabbits had red sores suddenly appear around their eyes, and started sneezing intermittently.
I like Tamsin noticed they had hot ears and felt clammy.
I guess early symptoms vary slightly from rabbit to rabbit.

Its spread by biting insects so its possible to contain it if you can contain them. Make sure you don't have any standing water that will attrack mossies, just a couple of inches in a bucket is enough. Step up you litter tray cleaning frequency to stop them being attracted and watch out for sticky bums.

With the weather getting colder/wetter the amount of insects should start decreasing.

Are they vaccinated?

Bunnies are fine, not myxi thank god!

I got quite worried as Smokey's eye went bad, then his twin sisters, then his other eye went bad, then an unrelated baby boy's eyes went manky
