    Default Jasmine's gunky eye UD Retrobulbar abscess removal

    Jasmine has been on isathal and baytril for a week now although we are nearly out of baytril. Her eye has improved, but does still sometimes have a bit of white discharge in the corner although this looks much better then it did. I have ordered an eye cleaner as her stained fur is making it difficult to assess if there's more she's wiping away herself onto her fur, although I do think what's there now is just old staining. We have been cleaning with boiled (cooled) water and hibiscrub on the fur. Has anyone got any experience of this? Not sure whether to continue with current meds for longer or see about trying something new?

    A couple of days later and the day we took her to the vets

    After 5 days of treatment (Wednesday), will add a picture of it today later

    I really wouldn't use hibiscrub for cleaning her fur, especially if it is anywhere near her face or on paws that she will wipe her face with.

    I'm using Hibiscrub from the vets at a really pale dilution, we use it pretty much daily on various animals at work even on the face. I have some specific eye cleaner on order kindly recommended by another member, the hibi was just to clean the thick crusted fur. To wipe her actual eye we were using just boiled water but haven't needed to clean it for a few days now

    Her eye doesn't look good at all. Did the Vet look into her eye in case she had something under her eyelid? This happened to me once and the Vet found apiece of hay under the there. I hope her eye gets better soon.

    Thanks both. She had Fluorescein dye to check the eye which was fine, and nothing apparently in her eyelid. Originally the duct looked to have white discharge in which since the first couple of days has been clear as I worried about a blocked duct. The vet suspects it's a bacterial infection as she was also snotty and our other rabbit is having treatment for Pasteurella (although is housed separate and we don't wear the same clothes/share equipment, they are still in the same household).

    Just taken these pics now, she can fully open her eye but I was giving nose rubs to get her to sit still and she was closing both eyes.

    Her other eye has a small area now of crust, but is dark rather than white/yellow discharge

    Will be taking her back to the vets early next week but unsure what to ask for next.

    Can you get her to vet sooner? Her first picture shows snotty nose. Has that improved? If so perhaps give abx more time. Otherwise vet may want to culture bacteria to select appropriate one.
    Did your pasturella bunny improve with same abx?
    Sending vibes.

    Thank you both Vets are fully booked and as she's eating and otherwise well can't move her appointment forward from Tuesday. Her snotty nose has improved. My other Pasteurella bunny is tricky, it isn't affecting her upper resp its all lower causing a lung abscess. She's on baytril, frusol, metacam and penicillin injections and is under the care of am exotic specialist. Her culture showed a strain of pasteurella sensitive to baytril so if we assume it's the same.

    Since baytrail is helping, I would give it more time before considering a change. Glad other bunny had culture and has excellent care. Sending more vibes.
