Weepy Eye Treatment?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby HollandLops4Ever » Sun Mar 04, 2018 11:28 pm


I was wondering what treatment you guys suggest for weepy eye? I've done terramycin, but the weepy eye came back a few months after I thought it had cleared up. Thanks!

If the nasolacrimal duct is clogged up- flushing that is way beyond the expertise of most rabbit breeders [and quite a few Vets] . I would suggest feeding garlic, onion, [especially the tops if you can get them] if terramycin worked for a time- the allium may provide a long term solution. In most parts of Oregon garlic chives and walking onion plants can be maintained and harvested throughout the year.
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens.

persistent weepy eye? CULL. might be harbouring pasteurella.

Otherwise check teeth and the eye to see if it's something biological or foreign causing the problem.

otherwise CULL no sense keeping animals (unless strictly a pet) that have any sort of health issue.
