    I have a 7 year old Netherland dwarf who has firm lumps on him, I’ve found 5-6 of them but I’m not sure if there are ones that I haven’t found, the largest is around the size of a pea it’s on his stomach, we took him to the vet for that one around 6 months ago, they said that it was a little Pocket of fat, none of these have gotten any bigger since I’ve noticed them, the rest of them around a quarter-half the size of a pea, and I’m just really confused?

    they might just be poos, or pockets of fat they are not a problem if he is completely active, i find many on my rabbits frequently but good call going to the vet because they could have been something nasty like cancer

    Are they under the skin?

    OK, lipomas are under the skin. They are moveable and have a rubbery feel to them. Is your bunny overweight? Lipomas are more common in overweight rabbits.

    He is overweight for breed standards, but I posted on here before about that and people said that he was most likely a false dwarf, he meets most of the characteristics of a rabbit with a healthy weight, I can feel his spine, ribs and hip bones rather easily, but he isnt the most energetic, I just assumed that because he is an older bunny though
