My rabbit just a couple minutes ago had a sneezing fit.. it lasted about a little less than a minute and he seemed alright but when i went to let him out of his cage he normally is out before i get the door down all the way. but he stayed by the door than went back to his sleep hut where he sits up top. should i bring him to the vet or is it something that could have happened because of his aspen bedding i cleaned yesterday?

Sneezing is normal. Did you see any discharge?

By the time I got up to look he was already grooming himself. so from what I got to see no. Right now he is home alone because myself and my boyfriend are at work.

He is likely fine. Just keep an eye for anything strange or more sneezing fits. My first rabbit didn't like a cleaner I used, so I had to change it. She also caught what I call the Chinese cold once. My husband came home from a business trip there, sicker than a dog with the worst cold ever. She got sick with sneezing soon after. Doc said it was a cold. Weird. Now we stay away from the pets when sick

My first rabbit would sneeze if she drank too fast. This one will sneeze after cleaning himself.

My buns sometimes have the odd sneezing fit, like 10 sneezes in a row. I think they do it when they get something, like a hair or fuzzy of some sort, up their nose. That's the only way for them to expel it. As long as it's not a regular occurrence and no discharge, it's nothing to worry about.

The only thing that concerns me is that he went back inside to rest rather than come out to play as usual.
Listen for another sneezing fit, watch his eating and poos today. If he is off his feed at all, he may be ill. Call your vet.
If everything is OK and he doesn't have another sneezing attack, I wouldn't worry. If all it is is sneezing, without discharge, it could be a little allergy.

My rabbit Emma has been having sneeze attacks for the past week. She will have a small sneeze and then she will have 5-8 harsh sneezes. Then she will start cleaning her nose. I read online that you can put 1 or 2 drops of diluted Grape Fruit seed extract (liquid form) in there bottle/water bowll so I have been doing that for 3 days yet I am not seeing a difference. If anything it is getting worse. Just a minute ago Emma had a very long sneezing attack that she couldnt just brush off. Should I visit the Vet or are there any home remedies I am not aware of.

I would recommend taking Emma to the Vet, especially if you're seeing evidence of discharge around the nose.
