(West Palm Beach)
my rabbit out of no where started to make this weird like puking noise. He is drooling and I think there is snot coming out of his nose. please tell me what this is and if I can do anything!
A couple ideas run through my head, Brianna, and none of them are very pleasant...Heat Prostration
It's the end of August in a very hot summer -- Did your rabbit get overheated? Stretched out and panting very fast during the day? If so, he might be experiencing heat prostration. You'd see moisture at the nose and around the mouth as well. If the rabbit is not too dehydrated, he may recover okay as the evening cools him down.
A second day of the same will likely kill the animal, so please check out www.raising-rabbits.com/cooling-rabbits.html for ways to keep your rabbit cool. Also possible -- snuffles
, also called pasteurella. This is like a permanent bronchitis that doesn't ever go away. If it's having trouble breathing and drooling, he might also have pneumonia. If so, your rabbit may not survive.

If your rabbit is alive in the morning, take it to a vet for a diagnosis, and let us know how it goes, okay?
