Abstract

Most skin conditions in rabbits result from a wide variety of pathogens, including parasites (the most frequent cause), fungi, bacteria, and viruses. In addition, reports of noninfectious diseases of domestic rabbits are increasing. This article discusses rabbit skin disease based on the predominance of one of four clinical signs: pruritus, scaling or crusting, alopecia with minimal pruritus, and nodules. Miscellaneous conditions are also discussed. Although a number of these diseases may be presented with variable or multiple clinical signs, it is often helpful to approach skin disease in rabbits from the perspective of the most likely differential diagnosis.
