Accidently Pulled A Rabbit Whisker Out.

21
Found 24th Feb 2010
Leaned in to his cage and i knew something had caught him becuase he like kinda pawed his face. Then went upstairs and noticed i had caught one of his whiskers on my glasses, it had caught him as i leaned into his cage. Poor thing.

Is this ok? Is there any risk of infection?

Thanks.

The rabbit will be fine ( should be ) whisker should grow back.

The whisker's on whiskered animal's/pets act as object receptors and other things lets them be aware of certain objects around them,

Like a cat squeezing through a tight gap the whiskers lets it be aware of the sides ( width )

BTW whiskers are one the highest sensitive parts of an animals anatomy ( it would've hurt )

Their lurking in the dark, waiting for wisker pulling people like yourself. I hope you feel bad!!!

How do you sleep at night knowing what you have done!

Poor rabbit I want to hug it (with no glasses)

Thank you very much for a sensible answer. I said sorry despite him not being able to understand me, he's dutch

9 out of ten cats prefer it!

The whisker will grow back in time. They are used for moving in the dark, as rabbits do not have good up close eye sight. They do shed their whiskers, but as this was probably not due to shed just yet, then it probably did sting/tug a little. It should be fine, but just keep an eye on the area for any soreness. If you want to be over protective then you could bathe in dilute salt solution, using a squeezed out cotton ball, dry well with kitchen towel, and watch his eyes and nostrils ( i personally would leave and monitor) HTH.

yowch!
