Growth on throat

22 11:33:31

Hello. My female rabbit has developed a large growth. It's fairly hard to the touch and hangs down from her throat. She doesn't seem to be in any pain or distress. Her bedding is made up of straw and shredded paper and I've caught her nibbling the paper, could it be a mass of undigested paper in her throat or something more serious ?

Is she young, say less than a year?  And not spayed?  A lot of bunnies get those, they are called dewlaps.  There's a picture of a bunny with a dewlap at is this what you are seeing?

If she is older, check it for any growths inside, and if you find any, take her to a vet.
