So I found this cute little bunny a few days ago, and have been attempting to care for him at home, but recently realized he is injured and not getting better. He has a wound on his back that I tried giving him a bath but blood just started pouring into the water so I took him out and dried him and just decided to see if he could take care of his own owie but it isn't seeming to be doing any better. There is still dried blood around the sore and it seems to be getting to be more and more with each day! And one of his eyes (pictured) has blood inside of it, as well as a white cloudy spot. Please help!!

If this bunny was found outside it is very possible that it was injured by another animal.  The most important thing you can do for this bunny is to get it to an exotic animal vet right away.

You may be able to find an exotic animal vet in your area on this list.

If you are unable to take the animal to a vet I would suggest that you look for rabbit rescues or SPCA's in your area that could take the bunny so that it can get the care it needs.  You may be able to find local rabbit rescues by searching through  You can do a search for rabbits and enter your zip-code and it should take you to the rescues that are closest to you.

Good luck.  I wish there was more I could tell you to do.

I am a licensed American Rabbit Breeders Registrar. I do not show rabbits anymore nor do I breed them. I do believe it is important that people that chose to breed rabbits do so with only purebred and genetically sound animals or that they have a thorough understanding of genetics prior to breeding. I have chosen to keep my registars license to help the 4H youth in my area. I do stay current on all breeds, varieties, show rules, regulations of the ARBA. I have spent the past 8 years focusing on rescuing and caring for PET bunnies who were no longer wanted. I am the current CEO of Little Angels Animal Sanctuary, Inc. I was appointed CEO of the rescue organization and sanctuary in 2008. We gained our 501(c)3 IRS tax exemption status in 2012. We have taken on the task of rescuing unwanted PET rabbits as well as some farm animals. I teach genetics and health to the local youth as well as register and promote the breeding of only purebred and genetically sound animals. I rescue PET rabbits. These are rabbits that lived in peoples homes and were either surrendered to us or sent to the auction for meat. While I believe that all bunnies should be pets, I understand that people raise them for other reasons. I will answer questions from anyone, regardless of their purpose. I will reject any questions that are considered unethical or inhumane.
