Harley's always been bad for having sleep in the corner of his eyes, even before he had myxi, which I have to clean for him. Ever since he has had myxi tho this seems to be worse, he often has big clumps of sleep 'floating' on his eye which I have 2 take off, this happens perhaps every 2 or 3 days.

Also, the inner corner of 1 of his eyes seems 'wet' from the eye down to about a cm in 2wards his nose, the fur is sort of flattened.

At present I am jst cleaning it for him etc.

What could this be? Is it a cause for concern, should I be thinking about taking him to the vets? She did say that he may never be the bunny he was after having myxi & might have little things like this, so I don't know whether I should worry or not.

On a brighter note, I have noticed over the last week or so tht his breathing isn't noisy anymore (for those who don't remeber, he had scabs/scar tissue inside his nasal passages after the swelling due to myxi, which made his breathing very noisy. The vet said it may or may not clear up by itself, & as long he wasn't being distressed or affected by it jst to let it be) :D

It might be worth asking your Vet to check Harley's teeth. A chronic runny eye can occur when the nasolacrimal duct is blocked due to overgrown tooth roots.
Its great that his breathing is so much better :D

Hi Lucy, Samson has a simelar eye problem caused by the damage done when he had Myxi, theres not much i can do for Sams eye as the damages done was very bad and he does sit with it hal shut. I would get harleys teeth checked though just in case xx

Hiya Lucy,

My Saffron had this a while ago - i took her to the vets and it turned out to be conjunctivitus. I also have to clean 'floating' bits of sleep from her eye as well, but she has had a funny eye since birth.
