I don’t think it will hurt. Sometimes the small poops come and go. Either way, small poops are a sign of a gut that is slowing. Antibiotics and pain meds are for a slowed-down-gut, and a white discharge is more of a concern than a clear discharge. If Eyedrops don’t sort out the eye discharge, then that can be taken as a sign to rule out certain causes, and look for others. The antibiotics could also help with the eye discharge. I would give him the medication. If you don’t and it gets worse, you’ll wish you had. Rabbits don’t show easy-tell-tale signs that they are sick. They hide it – so we have to be good at reading the obscure signs. A gut that is slowing down is dangerous for your bunny and I woudl treat it as a priority. The eye discharge coudl be from a bacterial infection anywhere in the eye, sinus passages, upper or lower respiratory passages, or it coudl be from tooth pain, or a blocked tear duct. And sometimes – we just don’t know. My little Lancelot always has weepy eyes, and as long as his pal keeps grooming hsi face, his fur stays dry. Your bunny biting at his paws coudl be him licking/cleanign them, since he uses them to wipe the discharge away from his eyes. If the inside fur of the paws is wet – the eye discharge does need attention.
