If you have an infant or juvenile rabbit suffering from runny stool, you should consider it a life-threatening emergency requiring immediate veterinary care. Unlike most other mammals, lagomorphs including domestic rabbits produce two types of droppings, fecal pellets the round, dry ones you usually see in the litterbox and cecotropes. The latter are produced in a region of the rabbit's digestive tract called the cecum , a blind-end pouch located at the junction of the small and large intestines. The cecum contains a natural community of bacteria and fungi that provide essential nutrients and may even protect the rabbit from potentially harmful pathogens. How does the rabbit get those essential nutrients? She eats the cecotropes as they exit the anus.

Rabbits not only have scent glands around their anus but also under their chin. You will need to work with your little one to determine which position is most comfortable for your pet when addressing scent gland issues. Gently wrap your rabbit in a towel or a blanket and hold them against your body with one hand supporting their chest, and one supporting their hind limbs. It is often helpful to provide one of their favorite treats or some of their favorite greens to munch on as a distraction. It is also important that everyone involved speaks in a gentle, reassuring tone. Once your bunny is secure and distracted, gently lift their tail and spread the skin on either side of the anus to expose the scent gland. Using a bit of water-based lube and a cotton-tipped swab, gently wipe out the dark, waxy substance impacting or plugging the glands.

Clean Your Rabbit's Scent Glands. Don't Overlook this Essential Part of Grooming. Here are some photos of rabbit scent glands that are plugged up with the waxy substance rabbits store in them. They need to be cleaned about as often as your rabbit needs nail trims. Some rabbits produce more scent musk than others and some may never really need a cleaning.
