My rabbits eyelid


New Kit
Hi everyone I need some help. My rabbit’s bottom eyelid looks like it is just hanging off of her eye I will try to put a picture of it but I don’t really know how to. She is an English lop and she is a little overweight. She has been acting normal and eating normal but whenever I go to check on her, her eyelid is like this. Once I let her out of her cage it goes away. Her third eyelid also sticks out when I pet or hold her. I looked up the third eyelid thing but everything says it’s normal and I can’t find anything on the bottom eyelid problem.
You need to get her examined by a Vet. There are numerous possible causes of the problem and only an examination by a vet can ascertain what the problem is and how best to treat it.
So consult your Vet ASAP.
