Hello!
I’m a new mom to an almost 10-week old holland lop bunny. I noticed that the fur at the base of his right eye is matted down as if it was wet. I’m wondering if he might have some kind of infection or if this is a sign of the beginning of one? Or maybe he just has a wet eye and I shouldn’t be too concerned? He was zooming around like crazy as usual this morning, binkying, and exhibiting his normal behaviour. Any thoughts? Thank you!62F64186-6E9E-43AC-9E7C-CFE6D75B7EAC.jpeg8ABEF13A-A0DE-4334-A13F-4CE99457557E.jpeg

Hi there and welcome to the forum! It could be a start of an infection or teeth issues. Can you tell what the color of the discharge is? Another thing that’s common in rabbits is a blocked tear duct.

Thanks for the reply!
I can’t tell what colour the discharge is... I don’t see any white mucous or anything... it seems to be colourless and his hair is just a bit matted in the corner of his eye. So maybe it’s a blocked tear duct?4194C532-8199-4708-958C-3D4FDD89540D.jpeg

I just went to the vet because of the same issue (watery eyes) the vet did a fluorescein dye test and said my riri is positive with mild corneal ulcer and its prone to infection. She then prescribed me antibiotic drops and eye drops. We will go back after a week if there's no improvement.

I just used this antibiotic eye drop 4 days ago to my bunny eyes. It is same solution but different brand. It was leftover for myself's eye. I made one drop each eye and lift the lower eyelid by 2 fingers. Inside eyelid is a large pocket, so the medicine went into the pocket. Only one drop, she is completely cured from white discharge. Used other mild eye drop, not working then switched to this.
