Thread: Rabbits got dust allergy. Needs suggestions regarding care taking.

  1. #1

    Default Rabbits got dust allergy. Needs suggestions regarding care taking.

    Hey friends,

    I bought ten bunnies recently. They were doing well in my home and seems to be getting adjusted to the new environment within a very short period itself. But I came to notice some bunnies sneezing too much.

    I met a good veterinarian and had a check for any respiratory infection or pneumonia. But my bunnies were diagnosed negative. And the doctor lastly concluded that my bunnies are allergic and the cause for allergy may be dust.

    He suggested me to add an air filter to safeguard the rabbits from dust. As my villa is located nearby a busy road, dust will easily get accumulated all over the interiors as well as exteriors.

    I'm planning to get an air purification system as soon as possible. Anyone here having allergic rabbits? Do you have any suggestions regarding care taking?

    Shall I shift them to another place ( I have two villas) where dust is comparatively low? Is there any chance for a premature death because of having this allergy? Awaiting replies. Thanks in advance.

    Hello.
    Whereabouts are you based?
    Are the rabbits related or from the same place?

    Yes I have cared for allergic rabbits. I found an air filter was a great help in controlling the symptoms

    Certainly an air filter sorted out one of my rabbits that had severe allergic symptoms quite fast

    Glad to hear they are working well for you
