      I adopted 2 angoras from the Humane Society a little less than a month ago. They are fixed, bonded, and live together in a pen inside.

      today I finally felt like I had built enough trust with our male, Appa, to trim his belly which has been starting to get matted. When I got down to his crotch i noticed that hes neuter incisions looked like they were completely open and filled brown crusty stuff, im not sure whether these are scabs or debris which had gotten caught in the wound. The area does jot appear inflamed and he does not appear to be in pain but it does not look normal to me. Also the incision is not fresh so there is no blood. He was neutered at the Humane Society probably a month before I got him so they did not tell me to check his surgical scars, this was the first time I had seen them so i have no idea how long they have been like this.

      Im going to try to contact the Humane Society  and our vet tomorrow to see if they can examine him or give any advice. Until than any advice is greatly appreciated.

      I’m thinking scent glands too. You should clean them. Its not difficult. Here’s a little video on how to do that:

      Its not very likely that a rabbit would have open incisions for so long after a neuter, and if the incisions indeed had failed to heal, there would have been problems with infection/inflammation earlier on.
