This is my first bunny! She's been with me for a little more then 2 months now
Today I noticed that my bun smelled pretty bad so I checked her scent glands and noticed some crustation around the area. I cleaned it with warm water and notice that one of the glands is slightlt swollen. Is this something I should worry about?
I've been told by my vet that bunnies don't need to have thier scent glands cleaned. Is this true?
Not spayed (acts like she's spayed. Calm and doesn't bite or chew furnitures unless she feels ignored)
I would recommend having your vet take a look at the bunny. Are you sure it is the scent gland that is swollen? Are you sure your bunny is female?
I've been keeping an eye on her scent gland and it hasn't changed still just slightly swollen.
Her attitude hasn't changed she still plays and eats well.
At the Montreal spca they said it was a female but sometimes she acts like a male, but I'm pretty sure she's a she not a he =)
What is expected for a regular check up? Do they just take the rabbit's wieght, temp. and check teeth and ears or is there more?
When I first sent my bunny to a local vet (a month ago) I was disappointed. I pretty much felt like a spent a lot for nothing.
