Mollys face is filthy. Its a combination of discharge from her nose and dribbled out meds. This sticky mess is attracting dirt from whatever she has been eating -readigrass stains and dust from her pellets. She seems to have forgotten how to wash. Is there anything i can do to help?

Can you bathe it off using plain warm water ? Then dry it all off well. I have to do this for Bobbie and at the moment for Jo too xx

I would use cooled boiled water with a pinch of salt added if it's also around the eye area. It may sound dramatic, but I knew of a rabbit in rescue who had a weepy eye and in an afternoon the flies had laid eggs on his face. It's not that hot yet, but keeping her face clean is important.

Hopefully Molls wont mind too much. If she does you can always tell her it's all my fault for suggesting such a dreadful thing !

She looks much better now. All white again. She didnt mind her face being cleaned but under her chin was another matter! Gave her a nice bowl of forage for tea so we are friends again now.
