Today I found something really weird on my bunny and I don't know what it can be and would really appreciate if someone can help me..She was just laying down when I saw that she had a red mark on her leg..I have no clue what it is but I'm a really scared that its something bad and need to take her the vet. I will do if any of you guys suggest to but I want to know what it is and what caused it and of course if there is anything I can do to prevent this. I attached a photo a photo and hope I can get some answers soon.
Thanks in advance.
However, she doesn't like to be picked up or anything like that only pet. I have been very patient with her and letting her come to me which she does. She lays next to me on her own and sometimes goes on my back to lay down but I haven't cut her nails in months because of the issue that she doesn't allow me.. any tips for me ? She hates when I try to pet her paws or grab them so I can cut her nails..she hates getting groomed which any type of brush because I have tried over 5 different kind

It looks like sore hocks to me. Is she a Rex? she looks very Rex like in the photo. While treating the hocks you can have the vet trim her nails too. I've always taken my boys to the vet for nail trims because they won't cooperate with me. My vet charges $20 for a trim, but some might do it for cheaper. If her nails are too long it will cause mobility issues for her and can cause her to cut herself. A good rule of thumb is a nail trim every 3 or so months.
