Pus Pockets

Does any one have any experience with pus pockets around the rabbit's vent? I popped three yesterday under the instruction of an older breeder and am womdering how quickly it should heal. I am currently putting antibiotic ointment on it in the morning and cortisone ointment on at night. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Sorry, I don't know anything about this ... It's always a good idea to call your vet if you are unsure about a delicate procedure such as this though.

I'd stay away from the cortisone cream. It contains steroids, which can inhibit healing.

Pus pockets on rabbit

I don't know how many of you have experience with rabbits, but..

Does any one have any experience with pus pockets around the rabbit's vent? I popped three yesterday under the instruction of an older breeder and am wondering how quickly it should heal. I am currently putting antibiotic ointment on it in the morning and cortisone ointment on at night. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

There are no rabbit savvy bets in our imediate area, so getting a vet's opinion is not the easiest thing for me to do..

Flush them out twice daily with soapy water and seek a vet's opinion ASAP. Often abscesses don't heal well.

Note: I merged the two threads, as there is no need for more than one.

It sounds like you're talking about scent glands which are positioned on either side of the genitals. Some bizarre people think that these glands need to be cleaned regularly and I for one, believe they should be left alone (unless infected, then it's off to the vet for a professional opinion).

Don't believe everything someone tells you (no matter how "experienced" they say they are). Some people like to poke around in areas they shouldn't and end up causing more of a health risk.
