Snow is sick. Please help.

I'm scared that he may have the beginnings of Snuffles because he had some green stuff on his nose today. It wasn't wet or runny, though. It was dry and just a very small piece. It's a dark green and I really can't tell if it's discharge, or if he somehow got a little lettuce wedged up his nose. He's not sneezing and his nose and eyes aren't running. He's acting completely normal, doing binkies and everything. His eating and drinking are perfectly normal as well. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow for a check-up. I'm hoping so hard it's not Snuffles. My last bunny died from Snuffles. Could it just be some lettuce that he accidentally inhaled? Or can bunnies just have a little dried snot sometimes? We have a dehumidifier going all the time in the basement where he lives. I was thinking his nose got a little dry. It's also a little warm down here right now. I'm going to get my dad to turn the heat down. Please tell me what you think.

Awww, I hope hes OK!
Personally, it doesnt seem to snuffle-like to me if he isnt sneezing, has no watery eyes, and isnt congested. Youll know for sure tomarrow!

Thanks.

I don't think it's Snuffles either because I know the main symptom of Snuffles is sneezing and white discharge. I'm just worried about this green stuff that was on his face and in his nose. I don't know if it's discharge, or lettuce, or specks of hay. I just hope it's nothing serious. I'm scared to death right now.

Update

Good news! Snow checked out just fine. No indicator of Snuffles or any other illness. Nothing wrong with his lungs or anything else. Whatever was in his nose must have been hay dust or a bit of lettuce. The doctor said he was in fabulous shape for a bunny his age.

Thanks! I'm still worried about that little green stuff, though. I think it's just hay dust or tiny pieces of lettuce, but I found another speck of it in his nostril yesterday. It's always only the left nostril for some reason. If it keeps happening, I'll have to bring him to the vet again.
