    Default Lump by eye

    Izzy has a lump by her eye itís right on her bottom eyelash line (if that makes sense) she doesnít seem to mind me touching it but itís fairly hard. Any idea what it could be? Itís black, but all round her eyes is black too and always has been. Sheís still not great with her movement, she just fell over and didnít even try to get up I had to pick her up and cuddle her for a bit and then she got going again. The vet is still convinced itís a problem with her ears so Izzyís got ear cleaner and drops but Iím not sure how much itís doing. Feel like Iím fighting a losing battle with Izzy but this eye lump is a new thing

    Oh dear poor Izzy is in thw wars lately isn't she The only way to find out what the eyelid swelling/lump is is to get the Vet to take a look. It's impossible to give you a definitive answer from just a description posted here. There are several possibilities and most can be easily treated. As Izzy does not seem to be responding to her ear treatment then another Vet check sounds to be needed for that too. If her tympanic membranes (ear drums) are not intact any more it may be that putting drops into her ears is actually exacerbating the problem regarding her balance.

    So in short my advice would be to take Izzy back to the Vet today.

    Good luck xx

    I didn’t take her at the time because of the snow. I’m not sure whether to take her or not as its not bothering her and hasn’t changed at all. The last time I went to the vet the vet said that she’s quite old, and I’m worried there’s not much they can do with her now. If it’s not bothering her and she’s still living happily as normal I wonder what to do for the best. Maybe I’ll ring them in the morning and see what they say

    Is there anything that can be done? The vet didn’t think so, she said she could operate but its so close to her eye that it could do more harm and Izzy’s quite old so I’m not sure she’d survive being sedated. It’s really sad, the vet said that it’s just going to gradually get worse, is there really nothing I can do at all?

    I have no experience of this, but if it were me, I would want to get the advice from a specialist vet. It may be that the specialist would come to the same conclusion as your vet that there is not really anything else which could be done, but I would want that confirmation. I understand the dangers of operating on an 8 year old rabbit, but that's something else that the specialist could take into account in his advice.

    Sending lots of hugs to you. This must be very distressing.
