    I was just in seeing the girls and spoon-feeding them their fav yoghurt and I noticed that my wee girl Alyssa has a lump on her neck! It seems to have sprung up overnight!! It wasn't until she stretched her neck out to get the yoghurt that it was visible!

    Has anyone any idea what it could be? i know it is probably a tumour or something but im desperate for any advice you can give me!!
    Also if it is a tumour , what are the chances it will be relatively harmless? :(
    I'm going to ring the vets first thing in the morning but any peace of mind tonight would be soo appreciated!! xx

    Could be an abscess.

    it is a bit too fast growing to be a tumour maybe...but are abscesses not caused by scratches or cuts or something like that? my bunny had an abscess when we adopted her cuz she had cut her leg on something in her cage when running about like a crazy thing.
