Question Hello there. First of all thank you for reading this. I will get to the point in no time and won't waste your time. I found Doodles at my usual petshop 6 days ago and i bought him. But he had a strange scar on his nose and i thought it will pass after some time. But it seems so the scar is kinda falling apart and getting white and i fear it might be getting bigger. I fear that it might be a ringworm but i am no expert at rabbit care so i would kindly ask your help on this. I was going to put some pictures of his nose but website crashed but i can send pictures through email or etc if you want to. I would really appreciate it if you could help my bunny at any way. Thanks for your attention. With all my regards,
A rabbit owner

It could be mange, or it could be an abscess. I can't tell without seeing it. If it seems flaky and crusty, please see:
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:
RULE #1: THE INTERNET IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEEK HELP IN AN EMERGENCY.
If your rabbits is LETHARGIC
If your rabbit is NOT EATING
If your rabbit is PHYSICALLY INJURED (including broken bones)
