      My bunny Donald is 2 but I got him from a friend of a friend a few months ago. He had a small mucus like eye booger and I wiped it but noticed the corer or his eye is red. Is this something serious? i attached a photo but not sure how well you can tell

      Hey!

      His eye looks clean and pretty normal to me in that photo but I’m not a vet.

      One of my rabbits has gotten sleepy eye dust pretty much his whole life but it’s never wet or yellowy mucus it’s always just a tiny bit of dried eye sand… A bit like we get when we wake up in the morning. So I do think bunnies get eye sand like we do. I would probably be more concerned if it was moist and returning after I’ve wiped it, if it is true discharge it is usually a symptom of a problem such as a respiratory infection or tooth issue.

      Is he showing other symptoms? Lack of appetite, not pooping, tired?

      A little bit of sleep in the eyes now and then is normal. I would only be worried if you notice a continuous/runny discharge or if the fur under the eye is wet.

      You can rinse the eye with saline or eye wash for humans in case sth is stuck, like a hair or some hay chaff. An eye booger now and then is not a big deal, but if it gets worse (a crust forming, causing the eyelids to stick together, more extensive redness of the white of the eye etc), there could be an eye infection. Take care not to wipe both eyes with the same piece of cloth/compress, because an eye infection can otherwise be transferred to the other eye as well.
