I have started to notice the skin appearing on Louis feet and I dont know what to do. He has probably rubbed the skin down but how could I help his feetiees?

Thanks x

Thick, soft bedding. Sudocream make my rabbit's hocks worse and actually leaving it alone has made it better. You can apply a pressure-reliving bandage if it's bad. Is it red, no fur?

He is a mini lop. Some fur is starting to go and mildly pink but I want to nip it in the bud before it gets worse :)
He has thick sawdust and lino underneath incase he digs and exposed.

Personally, i'd change the sawdust for soft hay.
