why does my bunny smell?

I have a mini rex female she not sure of her age at the moment. but she is starting to give off a strong odor kinda reminds me of dirty socks, she is clean and so is her litter and cage. its is in fact coming from her. I am wondering if it is because her sent glands need cleaning?

thank you


thats what i thought, ill be in the vet today for a lizard and see if they can do it thank you.

    It sounds like her scent glands need a good cleaning. Mind you, if you haven't done this before, breathe through your mouth! The smell if absolutely rancid.

    It needs to be done though, but check her scent glands.
