Can Rabbits Catch Colds? 🤧 Are you worried about catching a cold as the wintery weather comes in? Your rabbits can’t catch colds, but they can get ‘snuffles’ which is a lot more serious. Rabbits with snuffles develop cold-like symptoms, such as runny eyes, coughing and sneezing, and mucus coming from the nose (as pictured). If you notice these symptoms, then you must consult a rabbit-friendly vet immediately as it is very contagious to other rabbits and a serious health issue for the rabbit who has it. Snuffles can be treated with antibiotics, but it is vitally important to wipe away the mucus, disinfect everything your sick rabbit has been in contact with, and keep them warm. Prevention is better than a cure, so please keep your rabbit enclosures clean and keep an eye out for any physical or behavioural abnormalities.
