Unhappy Rabbit sick :(

Does anyone know about lumps on rabbits ? I have an older rabbit named stewie we have had him for about a little less then a month and i noticed the first two weeks of having him that he had a weird lump i thought was just an abscess on his neck but it hasnt gone down at all after doing cold compresses . I brought him to the vet and there keeping him over night . The lump is on his neck and now has a Pink boil thing on it that is really hard. I was wondering if anyone may no what this is? Im so worried about him

It could be an abscess. Abscesses need to be treated aggressively or they reform. If your vet does identify the lump as an abscess there are several things you can do. Surgery is one of them, as well as depocillin injections. Abscesses on rabbits are very difficult to get rid of because rabbits have such thick puss. Make sure your vet is rabbit savvy, then discuss possible treatments with him/her. Here's a list of rabbit savvy vets around the world so you can find one in your area: http://www.rabbit.org/vets/vets.html

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully it's something less sinister and they're able to remove it successfully.

I hope they are wrong
Whatever it is let's pray it can be cured.
Let us know what the vet says.
