Our Rex rabbit has recently become pregnant and had a miscarriage. She still keeps plucking fur on the back of her neck like she is still making a nest. She has plucked her fur so much she caused a wound and it has become infected. We are currently treating the wound with gauze, self-stick medical tape, and anti-bacterial/infection spray. We are dressing the wound 3x daily. My concern is it is not enough. I have decent medical knowledge regarding reptiles and know decently well about rabbits and breeding. Below is a picture of the infection/wound:
If somebody could give advice whether dressing the wound and keeping it clean should be enough or if more action is needed that would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!
Info about rabbits:
- There are currently 5 rex rabbits living together.
- There is no aggression between the rabbits: it's not a fight injury
- The injury is located where rabbits normally pluck fur for nesting
- They currently live in a rabbit hutch: half chicken wire/half wooden house
