Hi guys I have a year old female harlequin rabbit named Misty. This morning during her playtime I noticed that she wasn't opening her left eye. She will open it about halfway if something piques her interest and that allowed me see that there's a milky white patch near the middle of her eye and the edges of her eyelids are moderately red. There was also a small amount of eye gunk in the inner corner of her eye. I'm not sure when this started but both eyes looked fine when I put her up last night. She was a little lethargic last night which is somewhat unusual for her but that could be unrelated. She's acting totally normal this morning, hopping about, eating, interested in her environment. I wiped the area with a warm washcloth and tried to rinse it with saline solution but I don't see any improvement yet. That was about half an hour ago. She has never had any eye issues before this, or any other health problems. This is my first bunny and I've only had her since July so I am pretty inexperienced and don't know what to do. Will this go away on its own, what should I do if it doesn't, and when should I consider taking her to a vet?? I've attached a picture but I couldn't get a good shot.
