In rabbits, moist dermatitis usually develops on the chin, dewlap ("wet dewlap", "green fur syndrome"), and the underside of neck ("slobbers") or perianally as urine scald ("hutch burn").

Wet dewlap is often precipitated by drooling from malocclusion, moisture from drinking pans or bowls, and damp cages.[1]
