|Comment||Dr. Krempels, Thanks so much for your quick response. Her partner bunny is not mounting her but he is a very vigorous groomer -- a lot of teeth involved! -- and he sometimes focuses his attention on the back of her neck. I parted the fur and found what look to be little scabs, so it's probably that. I will keep an eye on them, though, for any changes. Thanks again! It's a great help to be able to ask an expert for non-emergency advice without stuffing the bunny in a carry-case and driving her to the nearest rabbit-savvy vet (an hour away!) during today's snowstorm. Best wishes.|

I've lived with companion rabbits for more than 35 years, and consider them members of my family. I can answer any questions about the biology and health of rabbits, from the commonplace to the unusual. But please note:
THE INTERNET IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEEK HELP IN AN EMERGENCY.
Find a rabbit vet at www.rabbit.org/vet for immediate help, and don't risk your bunny's life by spending time asking questions online! If you can't get in touch with your vet, read these Emergency Sick Bunny Instructions.

I have been rescuing and rehabilitating domestic and wild rabbits for about 30 years.
I have written articles for many rabbit rescue publications, as well as for the veterinary journal, Exotic DVM.
I own EtherBun, the internet's largest listserve dedicated to health, care, and behavior of domestic rabbits.
