Rabbit Health | House Rabbit Society
Rush your rabbit to the vet if you see: lack of appetite; diarrhea; few or no fecal pellets; listlessness; crusty ears; overgrown teeth, mucus around the eyes or nose; urine-soaked fur, straining to urinate; lump or swellings; head tilt; or any sudden behavior change. Rabbits don’t show illness like cats and dogs, so any perceived problem should be treated as an emergency. One skipped meal could mean your rabbit is in grave danger.

Signs of a Healthy Rabbit | Petco
With a proper and consistent diet and a clean, safe home your pet rabbit should be a happy and healthy pet. Unfortunately, even with the best of care, injuries and illness can occur. Heatstroke
Rabbits are very susceptible to heatstroke despite the ability to blow off heat through their ears. Symptoms of heatstroke are heavy breathing, lack of movement and elevated body temperature. Remove the rabbit from the heat source and submerge your pet’s body in cool water. Avoid exposure to heat and direct sunlight to prevent heatstroke.
