I have 2 adorable house rabbits that have lived happily together for the last months. The neutered male hs always loved licking the face of the female bun, but in the last 2 weeks he has made 2 bald spots above her eyes and continues to lick, lick, lick. She seems happy enough and is always willing to be licked, in fact goes to him expecting to be licked. I have tried putting a herbal cream for skin irritation etc (suitable for bunnies) but he even continues after this has been applied.
Have any of you had a similar experience

We had a kitty that licked her tummy bald. She did is so many times that it never really grew back right.
Her spots are not at all crusty looking are they. My bunny lost her fur due to fur mites. Apparently they all carry some of the fur mites but at times they can get crazy and over run the bun. Tabby started loosing her fur in small spots. I thought she over groomed herself. Then I noticed that there was white crusties on her skin.
If that is the case it is very easy to fix with the assistance of the vet.

Thanks for the message. I have checked and her skin looks fine, no crusty patches. Her fur is starting to grow back, but the male is continuing to groom her and the patch is growing. It doesn't seem to cause her any discomfort, but she encourages him to clean her face. If it goes on, I will take her to the vet and get her checked out.
