We were just trimming our bunny's nails and we found she has some inflamed tissue protruding from her anal/rectal area. It has like yellow mucus around it too. We've been noticing small yellowish spots everywhere one the carpet for the last like month, but we thought it was simply urine or feces. What is it, and what should we do? Does this sound normal/self correcting? Thanks.

Thats what we'll do. I have tried giving her a warm bath, just letting her run a bit in a shallow tub, to stimulate it to go back in. I took a cotton swab and cleaned it up, but it still hasn't receded. Heres some pics. What do you think it is? This isn't normal, right? btw, it doesn't seem she is in pain or anything by it. It just isn't right...

That does not look normal at all.

And remember that bunnies are prey animals and hide their pain sometimes until it is too late.

Yeah we're going to get her in ASAP. We were wondering if we should put like A and D ointment or vasoline around it so when she poos it doesn't hurt...what do you think? Bunny safe?

don't do anything before talking to a vet, call them see what the E-vet says, and take her in in the morning. We can not give medical advice those of us with out vet training aren't knowledgeable enough to do so, and those that have had medical training can't diagnose over the computer.

Not trying to sound rude just protecting your bun and us....

Good luck!!! hope she feels better

Yes, please do. That doesn't look good at all.

I hope this gets better!The hard thing about emergency vets is that they're usually not too knowledgable about rabbits or any other small animals for that matter.

Thanks :)

All went well. She had 3 polyps. Came home with a little cone :) cuteness. Everyone at the vet was excited as they normally don't get rabbits in for surgeries and such. The vet was really knowledgeable, though. ]

I am so glad to hear she is doing well.
A little cone - it must be so tiny!! You have to post a picture of her in it.

Lol, it was actually a little too big and she pulled it off this morning. We checked and there is no sutures to chew or anything so the vet said it'd be fine. We didn't take pics. I'll post some of her tomorrow maybe...too hectic today with Christmas Eve. She was also super good with her antibiotics.

That line about the vet being excited, because they don't usually deal with rabbits has me worried. I'd never take Flash to a vet that isn't a rabbit specialist. They're different enough from the cats and dogs that most vets see every day that the vet might actually do more harm than good in some cases.
