Rabbits get red eye when there is the appearance of blood vessels in the eyeball.
This causes a swelling or irritation in the eyelid of the rabbit.
So what happens if I find that ‘my rabbits eyes are red?’
If you find that your rabbit has red eye then they need veterinary assistance immediately.
It is usually a symptom of something more serious.
Possible illnesses they might be indicating include;
- bacterial infections,
- dental diseases.
A rabbit friendly veterinarian will run an analysis to discover the core issue affecting your bunny.
They can then prescribe a course of action to help them recover.
