Rabbit face flattening- Grimace scale

by lois

Hello everyone

I recently got a new female rabbit. I discovered yesterday that she has three scabs in the shape of teeth marks from a suspected fight while bonding at her previous owner's house.

Today I have been reading up on the grimace scale for rabbits and I think she might have face flattening.

At first, I thought it may just be her breed (she's some kind of mix) but looking at pictures of rabbits from different breeds I can't find any that has a similar face shape. Aside from the face flattening, she is showing no real signs of pain.

She is eating and running about and grooming herself and me. Do you think that I should still take her to the vets? Have any of you experienced something similar? Is this even face flattening or am I being dramatic?

Thank you for your help
