Rabbits sneeze because something irritated their nasal passages. Your bun’s cute button nose is pretty sensitive, and lots of things can send your pet into a sneezing fit.
Dust particles can irritate your rabbit’s nasal passages and cause him to sneeze. It’s not just house dust that can trigger this reaction.
Ammonia build-up in soiled beddings is one of the common causes of a rabbit’s sneezing. To provide relief for your bun, change dirty bedding or litter immediately.
The potent chemicals released in the air by the burning cigarette can inflame your rabbit’s respiratory tract. The same thing can happen with fireplace fumes and vape vapors.
Your bun’s teeth never stop growing. If they’re not sufficiently filed down, they can become too long and possibly irritate the nasal passages, causing frequent sneezing.
If a clear, white discharge accompanies your rabbit’s sneezing, this may be a symptom of a blossoming respiratory infection or what is often referred to as snuffles.
