Dacryocystitis (Weepy Eye)


Dacryocystitis is a common condition in rabbits where their tear ducts become blocked, leading to inflammation and infection. This can cause discomfort and pain for the rabbit, as well as affect their overall health and wellbeing, as they may have watery eyes, discharge from the eyes, and even a bulging of the tear ducts.

Black and White Rabbits

At Priest Lake Vet, our team of experienced veterinarians, including Dr. Kopp, are knowledgeable about rabbit care and are committed to providing the best possible care for your pet. Dr. Kopp has successfully treated many rabbits with dacryocystitis and has a deep understanding of the condition.

When you bring your rabbit to us, we will perform a thorough physical examination and may recommend diagnostic tests such as tear duct flushing or imaging to determine the underlying cause of the blockage. Once we identify the cause of the blockage, we will develop a personalized treatment plan for your rabbit, which may include medications to reduce inflammation and infection, or tear duct flushing.

Our goal is to provide your rabbit with relief from discomfort and prevent any further complications from developing. We understand that your rabbit is an important part of your family, and we are dedicated to providing the highest level of care for them. If you suspect that your rabbit may have dacryocystitis or any other health issue, please do not hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced veterinarians, including Dr. Kopp. We are here to help your rabbit feel better and live a happy, healthy life.
