my rabbit alice has a deep cut on the inside of your thigh i dont know what from?

its probly about a centimeter or two deep i sprayed it with disnfectent that we use on our cuts. its a little smaller then a 5 cent piece. should i open it and check for maggots? its almost complettly scabbed over. she doesnt act any diffrent but i do know that rabbits try hard not to act hurt when they are. for now i will spray it one a day will disnfectnt. please help!

if you trim the fur around it you can scrub it out with soap and water. If its already scabbed over i would just leave it alone. Nature has been taking care of itself for thousands of years now.

Rabbits do not try hard not to act hurt; they don't act hurt because there is no point in doing it for them. Also, predators go for injured animals first because they're easier to catch.

If it is scabbed over and the skin surrounding it isn't red, swollen or doesn't feel hotter than the rest of her body, I recommend you do nothing except trim back the fur a little with scissors so you can clearly see the wound.
As long as the rabbit isn't licking or constantly worrying with the wound, it is probably healing normally.
