"Red eye" in a dwarf rabbit

E-MAIL REPLY FROM DR SING DATED JUNE 6, 2012


Hi,

I pondered upon your vet webpage and would like to make a appointment for consultation for my pet rabbit.

It is a Netherland dwarf, about 2 months old. Recently it has eye dirt found on its eyes and one of the eye is seemingly reddish around it and opening not as wide as the other eye. Is it sick or suffering from eye infection?

Warmest Regards,

Name of owner











5359 -5363. Blood inside the anterior chamber of the right eye

I am Dr Sing. Thank you for your email. Your rabbit suffers from hyphema (bleeding inside the eye). Pl continue to confine the rabbit in a SMALL cage for the next 14 days to prevent further bleeding inside the eye. The bleeding is due to a forceful injury to the eye and needs some 14-21 days to resolve.

Continue medication for another 10 days.
