Kits with Nest Box Eye

Three of the babies had nest box eye, but it is cleared up now that it has been treated. Nest box eye is fairly common for baby rabbits especially if they are in nests that are dirty. It usually looks like their eye is crusted shut. What I mean by crusted is little eye crusty like hard ‘sleepies’ for a human that got bunched up together sealing the eye shut.
To treat this you may put water on a Q-tip and rub off all the crust and open the eye carefully. (Normal babies will open their eyes between day 10-12.) Then take a cotton ball with Saline on it and rub around the eye. Do this for around two times per day for as long as is needed. (My babies cleared up after cleaning their eye’s for one day.
