I’d never heard of conjunctivitis until I had it a couple of years ago- it was entirely off my radar, probably because I’d not been a rabbit owner or anything.
Neither of our littles had experienced it either, until last week anyway. The wee lass just got really gunky eyes but m’laddo has had it and had it in an epic fashion. We’ve been aware when he’s woken up the last two mornings by the blood curdling shriek of “Arrrgh! Me eyes! Dadda, me no see! Daaaaaaaaaadddddddddddaaaaaaaaaa!!!”.
So both the last two mornings have been quite exciting, with a blind two and a half year old balanced on my knee whilst I gentle dab his eyes with a wet flannel. Better/more exciting than an alarm clock!
