Lump on your rabbit:

  • I have raised rabbits for years and what I am seeing is more of a skin irritation caused by her cage or rubbing up against something.
  • You can see it has a scab on it and the hair around the wound is gone.
  • You will need to keep this clean.
  • Clean this with a clean cotton ball and warm water.
  • Apply Neomycin ointment or Blu-kote ointment to the area.
  • Keep an eye on this and make sure it doesn't grow larger.
  • A lot of times the babies get these on their skin and don't show up for a few days to a week afterwards. This is from a nip or bite from the mother.
  • I have seen these on my rabbits in the past and all I have done is clean them and applied the ointment to them.
  • If you are overly worried about this then you can find a vet who specialized in rabbits. Before going ask if they treat rabbits. Some vets only treat dogs and cats and don't know that much about rabbits at all.
  • From what I see from your photo this is healing now and there is a scab on it. Just keep it clean and let the scab fall off naturally.

Any unusual skin conditions on an animal or human should be checked by a doctor.
