A. This condition is caused by a bacteria called Pasteurella. It's very common in rabbit and can sometimes be difficult to get rid off. It usually causes upper respiratory infection - sneezing and nasal discharge being the main symptoms.
The treatment is medical (antibiotic called baytril for 3-4 weeks) and can be prescribed by your vet.
