Hi, My rabbit has recently been having her third eyelid show when she is eating food, she doesn't have it showing at any other time and its only been for about a month, she is 8 this november so quite old but healthy otherwise, her breathing has also increased recently and is a lot louder. what could this be? is it anything to worry about?

These are signs that she may have something going on in her lungs or throat. Bulging eyes or eyelids can be caused by a tumor or abscess pressing on vessels in the neck/chest area, particularly thymomas. I suggest you take her in to the vet for an exam as soon as possible. Hope it’s nothing too major :)
