I was brushing my female rabbit today and felt a small bump on her upper back. I assumed it must be a tick as I found one on her a few months ago. Upon closer inspection it looks like a raised, flaky lesion. It looks yellow. Quite small like quarter the size of a pencil eraser. I don’t see this anywhere else on her body. She does have a patch of missing fur to the right side of her lower back, but no redness or flaking there. I don’t know if that’s an isolated case from overbrushing. Also both my rabbits were in a huge fight 1.5 months ago when she jumped over her xpen - there was fur everywhere throughout my apartment. Could this be a bite wound from that time or could she have the beginning of fur mites? She does not appear to be scratching more than usual and my male rabbit is unaffected.
