My baby bunny has scab like bumps around his neck, what are they?
I just got a baby Lion Head bunny 2 days ago, he is about a month old and as I was holding him I noticed on his neck he had a lot of scab like bumps around the area. Does anyone know what they could be?
Does he scratch there a lot? I know a lot of small animals can get mites or fleas. I'm not an expert on bunnies however. Mites usually look like white scabs or crust on the skin.
I would second the fleas idea. Look at the skin and see if there is dirt around the area. Flea poop often looks like dirt. They also cause little bump like scabbing and like to gather in areas such as the neck, behind ears, and under legs. A good bath in dawn and a flea comb, along with a few days of healing should solve the problem if it's fleas.
