I noticed Stanley’s nose is a bit yellow. I think his paws are always tinted since they’re white and he steps on things. But the nose makes me nervous. It isn’t thick or gross looking. Haven’t noticed any sneezing. He is off pellets and mostly eats hay. His cage can be a bit messy and he likes to really dig through the hay and find the best peices. Does this look like early pasturella? I’m very scared now. Added links to pics with and without flash, also of nose itself showing no gunkyness

This doesn't really make me think of pasteurella. When a bunny rubs it's nose with the paws the fur on the paws tends to be matted. It's very, very common with yellowing of feet on rabbits with white feet. It's often due to litter that's not absorbant enough. Our member Sarahthegemini had this problem with her white bunny Buttercup, but it got lots better when she changed litter. A litterbox screen can also help.

With pasteurella you tend to see thick snot and often runny eyes, This can lead to wet cheeks or matted fur on cheeks if the bun rubs its face and nose with its paws. Sneezing is common.

I would keep an eye. The nostril pic shows a perfect little nostril.
