I was out in the shed on Friday and noticed his the hair on his front neck is all gone. The patch is about the size of the palm of a hand. This happened before on the top of his head bit it was much smaller. he's in great form otherwise. Is this normal?

I wonder if it's caused by mites? Does your vet treat rabbits? When Colin's daughter had her bunny, we tried to find a rabbit specialist, but our regular vet was fine with him (the bunny).

I have 2 rabbits and a couple of months ago they lost hair but it was like a perfect circle.....after testing for mites,ringworm etc..... i was told by my vet that they were just moulting and to keep an eye on it.
The bald patches cleared up in a few months.
I would take your bunny to the vet just incase there are mites or something else going on for a quick check over.
Hope that helps.
