Raw bunny butt-need advice

Post by Teresa » Sat, 23 Sep 2000 04:00:00



One of my bunnies is deformed and has no tail.  Thus he is always
having problems with this butt.  Currently his ***is very sore and
raw.  I wanted to know if anyone knew of an ointment i could buy at a
pet store to put on his raw skin. His vet appointment is not for a
couple of days and I wanted to do something now for him if I could.

thanks

Poor little guy. We hate to see our buns suffer. I would call the vet to
have him recommend something. I tried put over the counter antibiotic
ointment on my buns testes and his little sheath tripled in size. Now unless
the vet recommends it I won't put anything down near there.

P.S. We love you Hobbes our Angel Bunny

Hi Teresa Jo,

I have used Panalog ointment on Molly's bum-it's very gentle, and worked
well.  I bought it at the vet's, though.
I also read a reference that said Neosporin is okay to use on cuts; maybe a
little would help your bunny.  Here's an HRS reference that you might find
helpful, too, since incontinent bunnies have skin troubles:

Incontinence
A rabbit with a urinary infection or a disabled older rabbit may not be able
to project urine away from the body. The result may be saturated fur around
the hindquarters. For milder cases, shave the areas that get wet so the skin
can dry (remember, rabbit fur takes a long time to dry), rinse the affected
areas daily, and follow up with a dusting of baby powder or corn starch. For
more infirm cases, disposable baby diapers-turned backwards so the tabs are
up-do wonders for keeping the moisture away from the skin. (Huggies Step 2
work well for an 8 pound rabbit.)

Hope your appointment goes well.

Darcie

Hi You could try vaseline. It's not an antiseptic but it soothes and
protects.

Hi Teresa Jo,

Last year when my Jasper was having problems with his butt, the vet suggested
using Desitin - NEW FORMULA.  It was pretty thick and hard to apply, but it did
seem to give him some relief.  You can find it in the baby section of any
pharmacy.
