That's what I'm saying, unnecessary poking.

While I have a lot of problems with rabbit shows, the minor handling and palpation needed to detect a spay scar really isn't one of them. Any rabbit owner should be doing it on a regular basis to make sure they detect lumps, illness, and weight loss (in addition to weighing, obviously) anyway.

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.

I feel for weight loss when I pet Acacia. She's a fat lard who eats all the time so its not on my list or worryments currently . I see what you're saying though and while I never thought of it that way, I guess it wouldn't kill them to rub their tummies. I just know Acacia doesn't like it so I don't do it.
