    Default Bald patch

    Hi all,

    Benji’s got a bald patch on his leg :sad:
    It was noticed by a groomer today.
    No other symptoms.
    Should I be worried?

    The skin looks inflamed in the photo. Could the Groomer have been a bit too vigorous ? Is the fur damp ( which could indicate he is licking the area a lot, possibly due to pain). If the skin looks as red IRL as it does in the photo and/ or if he is licking the area a lot I would want a Vet to take a look at him.

    Is he with another Rabbit as it looks like a chunk has been pulled off?

    Thanks both for your reply. I think the groomer pulled off a chunk of his fur by mistake. Because it wasn’t there before the groom (or I’ve not noticed it). It’s looking nice a pale today (looks less red in reality than on the photo). The fur around the area is not wet and he doesn’t seem bothered by this at all. I’ve been observing him all day. He’s his usual self.
    Yes, he’s with another rabbit but I’ve not notice any chunks of fur anywhere.

    See photo taken today. https://ibb.co/LkZvBMh

    I hope he’ll be ok

    Yes, to me it looked like the result of over vigorous use of grooming tools.

    Glad Bunny is OK now
