        We noticed last night that our bun has two scabs on his back. They move with the skin, there is no lump underneath and he is acting and eating, pooping etc as normal.
        He was neutered 10 days ago. Do you think they will heal, should we just keep an eye or make a vets appointment?
        thank you for any help!

          The scabs look good, dry and no redness and you’ve felt for lumps. It doesnt look like an emergency to me, more like something you could deal with at home with normal wound care. But how did he get the sores? Is he living near another rabbit that could have bit him?

          I once had a bun that got 2 similar looking round sores in each ear after vaccination. Those sores just appeared out of nowhere, my vet thought it had to do with the vaccination but we couldnt know, of course. The sores healed without intervention but it took like 2 weeks.

          Obviously keep a close eye. If the sores grow in size, become unduly inflamed or seem infected, if lumps start to form underneath etc it’s of course time to contact your vet.

            Thank you for looking at it.
            He’s our only bun at the moment.
            We’ve since found some sharp bits on his x-pen, the door isn’t great and a couple of the tie wraps were cut short. I can only think he has caught himself when he’s been zooming around. We have since put black tape over so it’s not sharp anymore.
            We’ll keep a close eye on him and hopefully in a week or so there will be an improvement.

              That sounds like a good plan!
