    Hello, its been two/three weeks since i had my rabbit Caramel and whenever he is out and about running freely in the house with me near him i can hear him sneeze? but that is only like 2 or 3 times i heard it so i am not 100% sure is he sick or anything.

    Does he have any discharge from his nose?

    You will sometimes see staining/matting on the inside of the front feet from them cleaning their nose.

    If you are in any doubt, take him to the vets.

    All animals sneeze of course :)

    If you think its just every now and then, just keep an eye on him and see how he is. When they have an upper respiratory infection, they often sound a bit bunged up and snotty.

    My rabbit Sugar always sneezes. He has sometimes had a yellowy discharge from his nose and when that happens I take him to the vets for some antibiotics which clears the discharge up but he does still sneeze....I wondered if he had a slight allergy to hay! :p If he just has clear liquid from his nose I take it as he's just got some dust up his nose or something and he's always been fine.

    Lucky for me Sugar is white so its easy to spot when he has a yellowy discharge from his nose. If you see your rabbit wiping his nose lots with his paws that probably means he's got some sort of discharge and its best to get him checked out because if it is an infection and it gets left it'll spread to his lungs and then its more tricky to treat (so my vet told me)

    Hope that helps!
