Pet Questions? Ask a Vet and Get Answers ASAP
Thank you so much - on the pink spots, no, they are completely bald. On the pigmented spots, yes, there's some fine hair.
She seems to notice the spots...maybe trying to clean there (it's hard for her though they are on the center of her back). They don't seem to itch or irritate her.
Just one quick follow up question - you've actually seen rabbits have bald spots during molting? I've had a pet rabbit for the last 15 years (only 3 rabbits total, though) and I've never seen this. Also, there is a slight iridescence to her pink skin - but no flaking - does that sound normal? (I guess that's two questions)
I don't think it would show up in a picture - there's no texture to it (other than incredibly soft bunny skin), just a subtle sparkle if the light hits it right. No dandruff that I can see in any of her fur.
I really appreciate your help in this...it's just SO noticeable and odd to see on a jet black rabbit.
Thank you! I'll keep on eye out for hair regrowth and any changes. I appreciate your help.
