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:
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.
