    We picked up these two bunnies a couple days ago from a rescue. I'm wondering if the white rabbit has an eye infection. No drainage, but the lid looks pink, is it just his skin color? Also he seems to squint more than the other rabbit. Not sure if this is just the way he is or maybe he has an infection.

    It looks like it should be pink, but he is not holding it all the way open. I would get it looked at.

    AWWWWW!! I appears to me there is nothing wrong with the white. Are her eyes blue or red? That broken is just PRECIOUS!!!!

    I was told he is a Netherland Dwarf. His eyes are blue. He does hold his eyes open, but they seem to squint when he relaxes. The other bunny(lionhead) seems to always have hers wide open. I don't know much about rabbits, but we are learning quickly.

    I would ut some terramycin ointment in the eye for 10 days just to be safe.
    I would say the bew (blue eyed white) could be a nethie that's over size. And the broken looks like a Lionhead cross.

    Quote:Thank you, I think I will just in case. They told me the Lionhead is about 1 month old. I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

    Not much of a rescue if they are giving away 1 month old bunnies? Looks older though.

    There is no way that Lionhead is only a month it's at least 10 weeks.

    I think your right! I haven't given much thought to it until you mention it, but 1 month would make it more or less 4 weeks!
