    C1575F2D-E8AF-48D7-B1ED-53DD0BF1D1B4.jpeg Two years ago my bunny had an eye infection, vet recommended some antibiotics that treated the infection. Just today, this happened to the same eye. Refer to the picture. There’s a lot of pus like discharge, swollen eye lids and a film of creamy textured thing on her eye. I’m taking her to the vet first thing tomorrow but I don’t entirely trust the vet here they’re not rabbit savvy because they misdiagnosed her infection as corneal abrasion two years back before reaching the rigt conclusion. I’m scared and don’t know what to do, from what I read this could be cataracts and her eye looks really bad. Please share your experiences. She’s only three!

    Cataracts present as a milky-looking film over the lens, with no pus or goo. Definitely not cataracts; looks like an infection to me.

    The vet said it’s an infection and prescribed antibiotics!
