I went out to check on my 8 rabbits today and I noticed that something was really wrong about Moonlight.
His eyes are reddish and half of his face looks swollen. His ears stick out at weird angles and have some sort of brown scabby thing growing in patches on it. Moonlight doesn't seem to be hearing very well and a lot of fur on his neck has been pulled off.
Is there a specific name for what's happening, and will it go away if I just leave it?
I live in Thailand, where the weather is damp most of the time and there aren't many professional rabbit vets here.
(please excuse my messy links, I'm not very good at forums yet)
This looks like a serious infection. The ears could be infested with mites as well if you are seeing brown patches -- the infection could be related to that. Don't know. But if all of sudden it swelled up, then this is probably a fast growing abscess OR he got hurt somehow. Either way, it's best to talk to a vet.
This is the only rabbit-savvy one I could find in Thailand. I have no idea how close or far, but if too far, call this vet and see if they can recommend another vet that might be near you
BINGO... They specify an exotic animal clinic...
there was more than one exotic vet on their list
and contact details
It was much easier once I found the translate to english button.
