      Is this on top of the foot or underneath?

      Does he react like its painful when you touch it?

        He has it on his top of his hand

        and when i touch it he doesn’t react at all like it’s not even there

        and one more thing he always likes to dig it’s his fav thing to do , and he still does it even after this bump showed up

      Hmm… it’s hard to tell. Is it a bump underneath the skin? Or is it on top of the skin, like a growth?

      Isn’t it the same thing? The finger it self is swollen and red i tried to post a clear picture but it didn’t let me

      No, sometimes bunnies get things like papillomas, which are growths on the surface of the skin. They look somewhat like warts. A bump underneath the skin would suggest something like an abscess or tumor.

      Could he have had an injury? Like something poked his toe and it formed a small abscess?

      No he hasn’t had any injury , but at that day when i noticed the bump it was the same day that i trimmed his nails and he flinched but i made sure no blood came out , should i wait a few days before i go to the vet? cause he still seems okay he eats drink, etc… and its not getting worse

      This is a bit of a tricky case. None of us here are vets and even a normal vet would most likely have difficulties assessing this just from pictures. If the finger itself is swollen there could be some sort of inflammation going on, but the fact that he doesn’t flinch when you touch it and he’s still digging contradicts a recently broken toe. The safest thing is to contact a vet, preferably a rabbit-savvy vet. They might just tell you to keep an eye on it.

      If it becomes bigger or you see him start licking or biting it, obviously something is up and it should be seen. An abscess can grow very quickly.

      Hello again

      i kept an eye on it for 6 days now

      and i noticed that hair started to grew back on the bump slowly

      does that mean that its getting better?
