    Default Does Cookie have a cold?

    The other night Dan fell asleep on the sofa and forgot to close the windows downstairs, when i came down in the morning it was so cold.
    Yesterday and today i have noticed Cookie sneezing and todsy she sounds nasal, is it possible she could have caught a cold?
    We were only at the vets last week for MOT and vaccine.

    Rabbits do not get 'colds' as such. Sneezing can indicate the start of a respiratory tract infection, or it can occur as a result of an allergy to something in the environment. Dental problems can also cause a Rabbit to sneeze.

    Is there any nasal discharge ? As well as looking at her nose, check the fur on the insides of her front paws. A Rabbit with nasal discharge will usually wipe their nose a lot, so whilst it may seem as though there is no discharge (ie none seen around the nose) wet sticky fur can be found on the 'cuffs' of the front paws.

    If Cookie is still sneezing and/or sounding 'nasal' then a Vet check is needed as she would need to be thoroughly examined, including having her lungs checked.

    Good luck x
