    Snap, my Oliver has a lump of hard poo stuck on his foot as well. I have tried a few times to gently prise it off and it's half hanging off. I am just leaving it a few more days as I think it will eventually fall off by itself as it's stressing him me trying to remove it. I am afraid to clip it incase I leave him with a sore hock. I cannot believe how hard the poo becomes on their fur when stuck. If no joy in a few days a vet trip to get it removed . Sorry I have no advice.

    I think a soak will be the only way I'm afraid. You can try and cut it off, but you really want to avoid cutting any of the fur in case it makes for the hock being sore underneath.

    You can very gently prise it off in bits whilst the foot is under water, and then comb it out gently (if possible) and blow dry it on cool very well until dry.

    Not a quick fix. The trick is to check the feet as often as you can, and then deal with it whilst it's manageable - in future of course.

    Good luck xx

    My rabbit Lucy used to get these on her feet, but usually she would take care of it by herself. If there's a lot of it stuck, then I would simply cut it off with scissors trying to cut as less fur as possible. My Lucy had quite fluffy feet so it wasn't hard to cut those poops, if your rabbit has little fur on his feet then probably soaking is a better option.
