Runny Nose In Rabbits

Treatment

Treatment will depend on the cause of the nasal discharge and sneezing. Usually, treatments are given to relieve the symptoms, but in cases where bacterial infection is present, antibiotics are necessary for treating the underlying infection.

 

Surgery is sometimes necessary for the removal of foreign objects or masses that contribute to the symptoms. If dental disease is found to be causing the symptoms, in many cases the solution will be to extract the diseased tissue and/or tooth.

 

Living and Management

 

A healthy diet is often the recommended, which will not only support the rabbit’s immune system but promote good dental hygiene. Topical treatments like eye drops can help keep the eyes moist and relieve symptoms, such as those brought on by viral or bacterial infections. Your veterinarian may reccomnend routine follow-up exams to ensure that your rabbit's overall health and wellness is progressing.
