Abscesses

 

Abscesses are actually formations of puss that appear as tumors on the surface of a rabbit. When puss forms in rabbits it is actually very thick in comparison to other animals. However, this makes it very difficult to drain with conventional methods that may work very well with other pets. When rabbits have abscesses under their skin they often must be removed surgically just like a tumor. After surgery antiobiotics are almost always prescribed to limit the chance of infection.

Abscesses form due to infection and can form in a single or multiple spots on the rabbit and on various places of the body. These abscesses can also be vary in size significantly.
