Yesterday, our Holland lop doe looked like she had wet fur on her cheek. We looked at the area, and the fur was kind of crunchy and dry. Today, we checked the area and it extended to under her chin. We soaked it with warm water, and once moistened, the fur started to fall out. There are kind of crusty patches and the skin is red and seemed thickened. I’m not sure if there’s an abscess brewing or maybe a skin infection? Her teeth look healthy, she is eating, drinking, and pooping and otherwise acting normal and healthy. Will head to vet in am. Wondering if I should try antibiotic ointment? She is currently nursing four three week old kits. Thank you for your help!
