Customer Question
Hi I noticed some swelling...
Hi I noticed some swelling around my rabbits genitalia last night. She's also chewed away all her fur on her hind legs. She seems fine in character but the swelling has worsened overnight. We have a vets appointment this evening but is there anything I can do to help her in the meantime?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
