My rabbit's eye
I noticed that my rabbit's eye looks a little pink around the rim.  I am worried about infection.  I am definitely going to take him to the vet but I was wondering if I should take him to an emergency clinic, or if it can wait until Monday (today is Saturday night)?  Thanks

Rabbits have very sensitive eyes and get pink eye or conjunctivitis easily.  Conjunctivitis can be due to infectious causes or trauma.  

If a rabbit has an ear infection,  the rabbit may scratch his ears and accidentally scratch the eyes causing a corneal ulcer or introduce dirt into the eye (which would also cause an infection.  Infections of the skin around the eyes can be also be caused by bacteria or yeast, or by mites.  

Therefore it would be best to have your rabbit evaluated by a vet.
