My mini lop female who is hopfully 1week pregnant is loosing hair on her front feet (well just one at the moment), the skin to me doesn't look sore or anything, do i need to worry about her?

she is eating and drinking as normal and hasn't shown any other signs of anything bad, but i have never seen this before so was quite worried when i noticed.

Can anyone shed any light on this situation, thanks x

If there's no crustiness, lesions,, or flaking of the skin, maybe she is chewing and excessively grooming the area due to pregnancy stress. I would make sure she is getting a good diet to ensure it's not happening due to a nutrient deficiency(eg. insufficient protein, minerals, etc) and monitor the skin for signs it could be due to mites or a fungal infection, but that's all I can think of if the skin looks normal.
