Thread: Sneezing Bunny

  1. #1

    Default Sneezing Bunny

    Morning all, I was hoping for a lie in this morning, but I was woken by my bunny Holly sneezing. (She sleeps in a separate room to me with the door closed.) She's been a little sneezy the past few days and I was monitoring her to see how she went, but this morning the sneezing was so loud followed by a little squeek noise, it woke me up. She seems quite happy in every other way, eating, drinking, using the litter. There is no discharge for her eyes and nose either.

    We will be going to the vets later today. Thank goodness for insurance, as we seem to spend most of our time there at the moment. (Holly had a respiratory infection and few months back, shortly followed by her sister Molly with an ear infection.)

    Any suggestions or advice would be really appreciated.

    Xx

    You are very wise to get her seen by a Vet today. These links may be useful to take a look at :

    Have you checked her environment for dust, even the pellets have some dust in them. If you use wood shavings this could be upsetting her respiratory system. Hope she is better soon.

    Hi there

    It could be an allergic reaction to hay or whatever substrate you use (if you do) in the litter tray. Sneezing without any discharge is often not treated by vets as it's hard to know what's caused it. But you are wise to take her along to get a check up.

    When my bun was sneezy I found this info very helpful:

    http://www.veterinarywebinars.com/me...se_Rabbits.pdf

    You can also ask your vet about using Bisolvon. It's a mucolytic and it thins mucous and helps it pass, which is by far the easiest way of getting what's in there out!

    Good luck and I look forward to reading what the vet says later

    Hi all, thank you so much for your comments and advice.

    We've just returned home and Holly is fine, no signs of infection, her chest, eyes and ears are all clear, her teeth are fine too.

    So after a full MOT the vet thinks it's just an irritation, like hay fever, perhaps to the new hay we had tried. (Which has now gone in the bin.)

    I'm going to keep a very close eye on her the next few days, and fingers crossed she will be back to normal.

    Thank you from me and Holly:

    You're welcome

    It's always good to have your mind put at rest concerning these bunnies


    She's very beautiful, and blue suits her

    Awww!!

    I had a similar sort of thing with my bunnies in the past and was adviced to mist the hay with water to stop the sneezing
