Speckle might be hurting Simon, help!

Lately, I've noticed that when Speckle grooms Simon she licks his eye a lot until he moves his face away, Well, At first I thought his eye lid looked weird and maybe kinda puffy, but now I've noticed that he's missing fur around his eye, he's a hotot and the black fur around his eye is missing, not all of it, but enough for me to notice, I think she's being too rough and maybe even pulling some of it, I'm afraid she may be hurting him.. and he's just too nice to do anything about it.. should I be concerned?

Are you sure that it's Speckle causing it? Because rabbits will groom eachother's eyes if there is a problem with them too. Like, when I was doing research about Smudge's eye watering problems, I read that having a freind will help because they will keep their eyes groomed for them. Are you sure that nothing was wrong before? Because she could just be trying to help.


Just a thought.

yes, you're right Jess, I don't think it's her, but she is still giving his eyes a lot of attention, I'm kind of worried about it, but I don't know what could be wrong.

bunny syphilis can start with hair loss on the face/genitals--I'm not sure about other bunny conditions...

no, I haven't taken him to the vet, I think it's still the same, if I see it getting worse I will, but so far it's okay.
