Hello,I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. I suspect the reason no one had any advice for you is that your rabbit needs to be seen and treated by a hands on vet. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with over 40 years of experience raising rabbits. I'm sorry to hear that Ed is having some difficulties. I may be able to help you figure out what is wrong.If you still need help, some additional information will be useful. Do Ed's eyes move back and forth or up and down rapidly? Look closely at his head. Is it tilted a bit to one side? Is there anything in his environment that he could have fallen from? How is his appetite? Thank you.
