Enlarged Female Rabbit Genitalia

Enlarged Female Rabbit Genitalia

My adult female rabbit has been lethargic and not eating for 1-2 days, and today I noticed that her genitalia are grossly enlarged, but not bleeding.

What might be wrong?

Vet Suggestion for Treating Rabbit Genitalia

Hello there,

You didn't mention whether or not your rabbit is spayed. The list of potential problems is quite different based on the answer to that question, but generally speaking infections (of her reproductive tract, urinary tract, or scent glands that lie on either side of the vulva), adrenal disease, trauma, or changes that can occur prior to a doe becoming ready for breeding are the most likely causes.

The only way to determine what is going on is to have her examined by a veterinarian who has experience with rabbits. The Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians has a search tool on their website to help owners find a local veterinarian who specializes in the treatment of these unique animals.

Best of luck,

Jennifer Coates, DVM
