i just noticed that my 5 years old bunny has a dark pinkish color in her anus (don't know what it's originally called) and somewhat swollen and looks lump and soft. she eats and drinks well, yet i don't know what's the cause of it or how to treat it without visiting a vet since there's none near my house.
anyone knows how to treat this situation? :s

sounds like her vulva(vent) that's one of the many normal colours. Means she is just at or just past breeding readiness. :)

This is a picture of a rabbits vulva when they are ready to breed- its normal for it to turn bright red or even purple.

The Anus is at the bottom.

If its the vulva that's swollen it might be ok-- ( but to prevent cancer she should be spayed )

But if it the anus that is swollen you really need to take her to a vet, it could be a prolapsed anus and thats bad.
