    When I say she went Monty Python, this is what she did -

    The yellow color isn't infection, it's stain from the turmeric/honey/teatree poultice I am applying to minimize scaring.

    Oh...
    That's bad! The worst bite I had was when a doe bit all the way through my finger and wouldn't let go...
    Yours looks really bad. Please make sure you clean it and take care of it so it doesn't get infected.
    Alcohol, peroxide, chlorhexidine, silver gel....anything you can put on it, do it.
    And I might steal your poultice for the future...great recipe!

    I might be hesitant to keep a rabbit that did that to me...but give her a chance to be a mom and see how she does and fingers crossed that what happened was a fluke and not her temperament :fl

    The poultice works great. Thanks for the silver gel suggestion... I picked some up this afternoon. :)

    Oh good! That stuff works :)
    Last night I had to shave down one of my lops (a fuzzy) and she got a few scrapes on her from the clipper...I put the silver gel on her and this morning all the scrapes are closed up and not red at all!
    I really hope it works out with your doe. I'm sure you'll be nervous about sticking your arm in her cage :eek:

    Lol! Yeah, I used a stick to drag her crock to the front of her cage where I could grab it when I was doing chores this morning.

    I never had a rabbit attack like that! WOW. It has already been said, breed her and see if she settles down. If she stays like that, well.....rabbit chili, rabbit and dumplings, rabbit tacos...….

    The Polish buck I terminated last fall grabbed my arm like that... fortunately he was 2 -3 pounds.. and he didn't use his feet but no fun having a rabbit hang off your arm...:smack I culled him that day...
