My rabbit have crusty eyes?
what should I do to get the crustiness off? he is a mini rex, about 6 months aged, and outdoor. What would it be from? is it serious? can get pics if needed.
Here's what the website says about the topic:
"...yes, it's probable that if he's getting crusty, goopy matter that the eye is probably infected. It does need to be address as it is unlikely to go away on its own and the infection can easily spread to the ears or nasal passage, causing a more deeply rooted problem.
However, it's not a good view to just treat it with a random antibiotic for the eye. The best mode to treat would be to have a culture and sensitivity test to determine which bacterium is causing the infection and what it is sensitive to. A apt rabbit vet would take a sample of the matter from the eye and hold the test run. This takes a couple of days for the culture to grow, so the vet may or may not put the rabbit on a likely antibiotic eyedrop or eye emolument before the culture comes back. A vet visit is also a dutiful idea so he or she can check your rabbits ears with a professional otoscope to see whether the infection is starting to spread there so it can be caught rash. Ear infections can cause very serious complications.
I hope you already have a perfect veterinarian for your rabbit. If you have not taken your bunny to the vet before, please try to find one who is experienced with rabbits. Many vet who are very good with dogs and cats are not up to date about rabbits, especially the latest information. The page http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/vet.h... have suggestions on how to find
one. There is a list of some vets at http://www.rabbit.org/care/vets.html and another organization's list at http://homepage.mac.com/mattocks/morfz/P...
You can also contact a close House Rabbit Society chapter or other rabbit group for suggestions on good local vets. HRS has a page encyclopaedia contacts for their own chapters. If there is not one near you, you can look for a within reach independent group using the HRS contacts page http://www.rabbit.org/links/index.html "
It is not normal,I can tell you that.It needs medical treatment forthwith.
Pix would be great! I'm sure it's nought though, It usually happens during sleep. It's happens to a great deal of pets, like it happens to humans.
