    We have a female bunny that is pregnant and another female bunny who just lost her babies, I noticed today the one who recently lost her babies had very wet fur under her eyes and watery eyes, I believe she is crying, as silly as that sounds.
    Also, she is not pregnant but she is making nests.
    Is the pregnant bunny making her upset?
    Is there anything I can do?

    Sounds like your rabbit might have a cold and that may be a good reason why she lost the babies. I'm not experienced with antibiotics for rabbits, but it may be a good idea to start her on a regimen of antibiotics until her eyes clear up.

    Are these two females together? If so, you might want to think about separating them. The other rabbit who is not pregnant could very well kill the babies or injure the other mother.

    I hope someone else might be able to give you some better advice.

    I am buying a cage to put the pregnant bunny in today.
    Thank you.
