Avoid them: Avoidance of bunnies should be easy unless you live on a farm. Cats are in many places; obviously you should not have one yourself.

See an allergist:
Consultation with an allergist would be the next step to confirm your allergy to rabbits and/or other allergies. This is typically done after obtaining a proper history and performing allergy skin testing.

Highly unlikely-: Other infections such as franciscella tularensis (tularemia) potentially, yes- but not leptospirosis from petting a bunny. However, if you are the one responsible for cleaning up rodent feces and urine, you could get it if the bunny is infected and one were to inhale dtried particles of its feces or urine. ...Read more
Possibly: Vaccination of domestic animals against leptospirosis provides significant protection, but is not effective in all animals. Some immunized animals become infected and excrete the bacteria in their urine. Most cases occur in the tropics. Maybe your veterinarian can tell you more. ...Read more

My bunny eats food with alphalfa, but my dad said my grandpa used to eat alphalfa, is it healthy for humans to eat? What is it? Thanks
Not at all: It is fairly common to be allergic to one or two animals and not others. There are many factors that go in allergies, including particle size, amount of exposure, etc. So it is not weird at all. I do recommend consultation with a board-certified allergist/immunologist to evaluate and manage your allergies. ...Read more
My 5 yo tried to step on/kick baby bunnies on the playground at school. He's not normally violent & has two older bros can be mean to him. Worry??

I touched my friend's pet bunny at her dorm. I put my backpack there. Bunny is running everywhere. Do I get any disease eg. Ticks and bacteria? No bite.
Unlikely: Hard to know whether this pet bunny has been carrying anything, but there are a variety of organisms that can be transmitted from rabbits to people. Touching them is usually fairly benign and unless you are developing symptoms would ignore the small risk. Good luck. ...Read more

SEE A DENTIST.:
The bunny look is associated with lack of space for these teeth, so they came forward (protruded).
The ideal thing would be to consult an orthodontist to bring teeth to the right position (braces). Or these teeth may be "re-shaped" cosmetically
or ground down (not recommended) placing two new prosthetic crowns. ...Read more

-profile photo- The red dots are the areas I had dysport injected for bunny lines/line above nose, are these the proper injection areas? (50 units)
Yes: The area you highlighted is the correct area that would cover the bunny. However 50u is a bit steep if it was just in those 2 spots. If the disport was not only given in those 2 areas and the areas between the brows and on the sides of the middle portion then yes 50 is right. ...Read more

Allergic to rabbit? I just got a bunny and shortly after I broke out in hives. I have no breathing problems and my hands and face are not effected. I have never had a problem with rabbits before, but could it be the bunnie? And do I need to go see a docto
As many other things can cause hives, this may well be a true allergic reaction to the rabbit or just coincidental. If the problem continues for over 6 weeks or gets more severe despite taking antihistamine, consult an allergist.
If you have hives only when exposed to the rabbit, you should get rid of it. ...Read more
