Ear Mites


Ear mites grow and multiply in the ear canal of rabbits. A brown and crusty material can form and if it gets bad enough can fill the ear canal of the rabbit. This buildup usually does not take long to form because the ear mites can multiply very fast. This causes the skin underneath the buildup to become extermely irritated.

A couple of different medications are available for rabbits with ear mites. Ear drops are generally the first choice for medication as they are the easiest to apply and generally receive good results. As a last resort injectable medications may be used however they can be hard to administer without a veterinarian but also generally receive good results. Injections will be necessary if the ear mite infestation has progressed to an advanced stage. For this reason you should have your rabbit looked after as soon as possible if you suspect it may have ear mites.
