    Hi all! I am new here. And just came across the site in desperation. My lovely little rescue bunny has been fine, then got what seemed to be a water infection. That has progressed to a lump on his abdomen. On day two it's even bigger. My vet on day one, said well he's had a good life (age 6) and that was that. He has a wonky leg and is a disabled rabbit. But sometimes I feel people just look at him and think he's not worth trying to save. I would never put him through any unecessary trauma. But wondered any one elses opinion on this? Do I pursue biopsy/ surgery options? They havent tested or done anything apart from look him over. I'm so worried I'm just not taking action-and what if I should.

    Get a second opinion from an exotics vet. He's only middle-aged at 6 years old, I lost my two wobbly elderly ones last year at 12 and 13 years old respectively. One was to a tumour but on the side of his poor little face.

    I would say surgery is definitely something a good rabbit-savvy exotics vet should be looking into. He should have x-rays and blood tests to see what's going on in more detail.

    Not all vets are rabbit savvy!!
