5 Clear Signs that Your Rabbit Loves You!
How to Tell if Your Rabbit Has Weepy Eye
Looking for Symptoms
Look for hair loss under the rabbit's eyes.
Check for a layer of crust around the eyes.This can also be a sign of weepy eye. It may be hard to tell if you have more than one rabbit living together, because rabbits groom each other. If you separate the rabbits for a short time, this may be easier noticeable.
Look for droopy or saggy eyes.This can be caused by a few things - wrinkles that come with old age, sleep deprivation, or weepy eye. Use process of elimination to find the cause.
Watch for excessive tear formation and fluid running down the cheeks.
See if your rabbit rubs its eyes with its front paws.This behavior is a response to discomfort (though it only irritates the eyes further).
Think of a possible cause.If you can figure out what caused your rabbit's weepy eye, you might be able to help the vet (or yourself) in treating it. Weepy eye is caused by a blocked tear duct and/or inflammation of the eyelid, which might be caused by any of the following:
- Cellular/bacterial debris clogging the tear duct
- Osteoporosis making a tooth root intrude into the skull
- Infection in a tooth root or middle/inner ear
- Dust, sprays, or fumes
Treatment and Prevention
See the vet.The vet can officially identify weepy eye and prescribe medication, like ophthalmic antibiotic ointment.
Minimize sources of irritation.Dust and dirt can cause weepy eye, so keep them to a minimum. You may also breed to remove chronically affected rabbits.
