I'm not sure where else to write this because I'm new to this site, anyways a month ago i bought a 3 year old female rabbit from a friend and I keep her outside. She has a cage but is allowed out of it in a fenced in area from 7am to 9pm everyday so she only uses her cage at night time. About 26 days ago she got lose and was roaming around my backyard and my neighbours backyards. I noticed another bunny near her and finally caught her and put her back in her cage but she was out all day long. Yesterday she developed a dewlap. It wasn't there the day before but when I woke up to let her roam around outside for the day she had it. Today when I went to let her out her dewlap is gone, but now there's a huge kind of like abscess under her neck and near her shoulders and front paws. She's eating and pooping but I know there's something wrong. She keeps laying down and doesn't want to play. Could she be pregnant? Or could this be a tumor? The closest vet is 3 hours away in toronto and I can't really find anyone to take me there right now, but im really concered and i dont want anything to happen to her
