          What has happened to the lip? Was it an accidental injury or is it something else? Have you been in contact with a vet?

          Are you feeding him Critical Care (or similar recovery product? If a bun eats only Critical Care it will need to drink less because the Critical Care is mixed with water.

            It’s hard to tell from the picture what that is. It could be a small abscess (hay poke) or it could be a papilloma or similar.

            As Bam pointed out, if he’s getting Critical Care, he won’t be too interested in water simply because the CC is already hydrating him.

            I would suggest having a vet take a look to see what it is. It’s possible a vet could remove it.

              Regardless if we can pinpoint what caused it, this will need to be examined by a vet for treatment, so I’d get your rabbit in ASAP, especially if it’s impacting food/water intake at this point.
