we just got 2 bunnies, and one of them has an eye that is draining and red. Is there anything I can do for it, without taking it to a vet?
It has been my experince with vets, that when you take an animal in for ONE thing, they talk you into a BUNCH of things.

I would take her in. Make sure it is a vet who knows rabbits (most don't and you can't treat a bunny like a cat)

The only real bunny sicknesses I'm familiar with are Pasturella and Ear Infections.

There is a really good Yahoo Group: Etherbun, for rabbit owners. You might want to post there.

Take her in. Bunnies can go down hill FAST. I would contact the house rabbit society of the us for a local vet recommendation as some (most) vets have NO CLUE about rabbits--- and they're special creatures!

Sometimes an "eye thing" is actually a respritory issue acting out and that's serious business in rabbits.

good luck!
