Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with over 40 years of experience raising and showing rabbits. I'm sorry to hear Roscoe is having a problem. Some additional information will help me determine the best steps for you to take.

Check the bald spot closely. Can you see any new downy hairs starting to poke through?

Does he seem to scratch at or bite the spot?

Does the skin look normal, sore, flaky, etc.?

Thank you.

Anna
