    I have an indoor rabbit which it’s extreme sensitive to dust, I use no bedding in the cage and I have paper based litter pellets in his litter box. He stopped having trouble with his eyes but he still have sneezing seizures and have a runny nose.

    I’ve been to a vet specialist veterinarian which many rabbit owners recommend in my country’s region. Both times he have been healthy and I got treatment for the eyes which helped.

    Will it help when he become an outdoor rabbit or will it get worse?

    I clean the apartment every week and clean his litter 3-4 times a week, I also let the window open when I clean.

    How can I help him with his sensitivity to dust.

    It sounds like you are doing a lot to help him out with his allergies and keep a very clean place!

    A humidifier may help. It helped my bunny quite a bit when I got one!


    It's hard to tell whether it may get better or worse outdoors-- it depends on the specific allergies.

    He seem to always react to everything that dust, I’m thinking outdoor he will have better ventilation which will help him with all the trouble of sneezing and the runny nose he get and I don’t have to worry about his eyes getting clogged up again. He get yearly vaccination to the common rabbit disease we have and vet inspection and also he will get a doe friend after he’s neutered and a huge cage with a lot of space. Couldn’t neuter him when he was 5 months because he was too small and it was to risky.

    I truly love my little bun and only want what’s best for him :3

    Are you certain it's a sensitivity to dust? Did your vet rule out a respiratory infection, and if so how did your vet rule it out(eg. nasal swab, visual examination of the nasal passages with an otoscope, xrays)? Has your rabbit ever had any white or colored discharge?

    My rabbit had white discharge from the eyes but that time he had clogged eye channels, the vet used visual examination with an otoscope. He have never had any discharges after the treatment with eye drops, we was going to operate him if his eyes didin’t get better.
