Hi there everyone it's been a long while since I posted on here and I've really missed it.
However the reason why I'm posting is recently Binx has been getting clumps of poo stuck to his bum and it became really matted and he's got a damp bum, thankfully I've managed to bathe the poo off his bum and clip it off and have brought him in and put him in the indoor cage (he's an outdoor bunny but when it gets cold we bring him in), but his bum seems to be still quite damp.
In himself he's fine (he's just over 3 now) and his poos are normal and outside in the garden we've got litter trays dotted about in his favourite sitting spots which get changed every day.
I'm keeping him in over night to see if it is just because I've bathed it and it's just taking a while to dry but I am really concerned over this, if anyone has got any information as to why or anything I'd really appreciate it.

A Rabbit who is not keeping himself clean needs to be examined by a Vet. There are numerous possible causes including Dental problems, arthritis, Urinary Tract problems, diet/GI tract problems. Without a thorough examination it is impossible to say what may be wrong.

I would definitely keep him indoors until he is 100% dry as he will get chilled and hypothermic if he is outdoors and damp/wet from bathing.

I would get him Vet checked ASAP xx

I'm happy to report everything is fine with Binx!
We took him to the vets on Friday and no illness or over weightness just an unfortunate and unpleasant experience. so he got shaved and the clump was removed. he was a bit peeved off because of the ordeal but he's been getting so much attention this weekend with loads of nose rubs and cuddles and been moved inside for a little bit with his igloo :D
