    it could be, best thing to do is give your vet a ring. What colour is the discharge from his nose?

    No discharge, it just looks wet.

    Phoned emergency vet, and he advised if no better by the morning to take him down there.

    Aw, i'm sure he'll be fine. Some buns do have a slight reaction to it. Shouldn't last more than 24 hrs. Healing vibes coming from my bunny Toby too :001_cool:

    Hi
    Update :

    He went back to the vets and they put him on The same medication (Baytril) for another 20 days, and he is going in tomorrow to have his tear ducts flushed which they said he may have to be sedated. If that doesnt help they will have to rethink of other options. He seems well in himself. Eating and drinking normally, its just the Sneezing really loudly and the white discharge that comes out of his nose. Also I think where he keeps sneezing it starting to make his head abit wonky. :(

    Have you put anything different in his cage? like new wood shavings? hay? straw?!

    My rabbits sneeze (without discharge) because the hay is dust? Maybe hes allegic to dust or something? :confused: x
