Hi everyone!

I aquired an overweight rabbit that doesn't seem to clean her vent/scent gland area very well. She's had poop stuck to her fur there several times that I've cleaned off and her vent seems very bright red and inflamed. Any suggestions are appreciated.

sometimes TSC will carry penicillin. Or you could try polysporin.
I don't believe topically using penicillin would be a problem but I've been told only use Pen G. Or penicillin with procane included. Supposedly any other kind can kill rabbits.
This isn't just word of mouth advice, I've been told this by 2 vets and read it in several texts that are aimed at research.

if injected. This is not injected. It's just one spot, on a sore vent. Just pen g.
