Hi
I can't think what they could be at the moment, is he ok in himself?

If you are really worried get him checked out at the vet, hopefully there is a simple explanation

Just had a thought, he was neutered recently, did they leave disolvable stiches in him? It could be those but not sure if that would be the right place for them

it feels like a spikey bone coming throught the skin surrounded by a fatty lump?...but its not bone obvoiusly..well i hope not on either side of his bum underneath..his fur is lookking a bit shabby too?? moulting and changing colour but that could just be him growing up.?

I've just given poor elvis a poke round the bum. There are normal boney lumps either side of his bum but I wouldn't describe them as spikey. If he's running around ok it can't be anything serious, if he was in pain you would know.

Still worth getting him vet checked though, and let us know what they are.

Good luck

Usually between 10 and 25. Sometimes free if its with a vaccine or if treatment is given which will be paid for.

It varies a lot, but mine charge around 20 without treatment or 8 for a follow up appointment

Thats good, but I thought they would have been old enough for vaccinations if they are old enough for neutering. Myxi can be given at 6 weeks and I think VHD from 12 weeks.

Hope it goes ok tomorrow

If they have been neutered they can most certainly be vaccinated :?

How many rabbits do they see at your vets branch? Im appauled that they are giving out such information.

Probably best to take both. That way they have company and you can get them vaccinated at the same time if they will do it.

18 months is complete rubbish :shock:

That's nonsense! I work at a vets and have never heard of any practice recommending leaving vaccinations so late!

We give the myxi vacc from 9 weeks.
