We have a new zealand rabbit. the rabbit is lethargic, with crusty eyes and yellow nose discharge. Has little interest in food or water. Abdomen is not distended, and has nothing that feels like a gas bubble. Rabbit seemed a little down yesterday. ears were hot to touch. Gave her 15mg Ibuprofen as a fever reducer at 5pm last night, and 5am this morning. Currently unable to get her to vet until tomorrow, any ideas of possible illness and mitigation strategies?
