Being the anal retentive bunny mom that I am, who doesn't have a vet appt. until tomorrow, and work is DEAD today, I am on the internet googling Sophie's symptoms. Hutch burn hits right on with the area of the infection and the scabs that are now present, and her fur loss. But, there is one problem. I change her litterbox every other day. Hutch burn is for dirty bunnies, not my bunny! Right?!? It looks like the Tresaderm and Baytril are the correct treatments so we're on the right track and the area is definitely looking better but... it's for dirty cages! That horrifies me.
Vet appt. with new vet at the same animal hospital. This one is also a specialist in small animals so we'll see... I just need a better diagnosis than "bacterial infection".
What do you guys know about hutch burn? Other than to keep cages clean, I mean. This is really horrifying to me if this is what is wrong with her!
