Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Is your lad showing any lameness after this altercation?
Are you seeing the skin intact (with hair loss) or does it look torn/damaged?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paperclip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
Unfortunately, even despite your photos coming out very small, this looks likes this portion of his leg has been skinned by the dog. As you noted, rabbits have very thin skin and it is prone to tearing with trauma. Even though it is positive that he is still eating despite this and showing little obvious sign of shock, it is an urgent situation. He needs to be started on rabbit safe antibiotics and pain relief immediately. If there is any flap of skin, this should be surgically stitched closed, otherwise we may need to have the area specially bandaged to protect the skin and aid him healing from this injury.
Please take care,
