    Default Physiological serum

    The vet told me I could apply physiological serum to the inside of the nose and eyes of rabbits. Is this true? If I put liquid serum into the rabbit's nose, will fluid accumulate in his lungs?

    That's saline, so safe for eyes and nose for humans.. Idk about rabbits..? (eyes will be fine ofc, I just don't know about the nose )

    Using a nebuliser will do this, if you use a saline solution.

    Thank you so much

    What if I clean the solution by squeezing the solution inside the rabbit's nose? If I do this, is there any danger of fluid getting into his lungs?

    Depends how much you use. Rabbits are obligate nose breathers and having anything put up their nose will cause them a lot of stress. I would not do it as there is a better alternative ie a nebuliser.
