Exclamation Bailee Sneezing?

Bailee has been sneezing off and on since yesterday. It seems to only happen when he sniffs the carpet, hay, and litter. Is this just allergies or is there something I should be concerned about? Any advise will be appreciated!

Does she have runny eyes, or nose, and is she sneezing a lot? Or does he have the sniffles? Zeus sneezes once in awhile and he's not sick or anything - but if he displays other syptoms of being sick I would take him to a vet to check it out.

Bailee doesn't have watery eyes, runny nose, or discharge. I'm completely confused. Someone told me it could be allergies. Is this possible?

Like I said, it's possible, but very rare in rabbits.
The only way you'll tell is to change everything that you're using to dust-free or low-dust brands and just see what happens.
If not, your vet can probably test her for allergies.
The only way you'll get a definite answer is to see your vet, but try changing the stuff in her environment first to see if that makes a difference

I agree, I think you should try dust-free hay or bedding. Dust etc will irritate all animals, as it does with us.

Change where you get your hay supply etc and give that a go. If his general health is good then I would wait and see if this makes a difference. Beware of discharge from the nose (usually white) and runny nose/eyes - should you get these symptoms then take to the vets.

Hope it all works out.
