Mites & Fleas
Always check your bunny's fur for flaky skin or flea dirt. Treatment is easy
The mites live on the surface of the skin around the hair shaft and cause damage resulting in hair loss and a dandruff appearance. If you are concerned that your rabbit might have mites, please see an experienced rabbit vet for treatment. The vet will be able to to check the presence of these tiny insects under the microscope.
You can treat your rabbit for mites at home or at the clinic. At home you can safely use Revolution for puppies & kittens. It is the only safe flea treatment that we use if our buns ever have mites. Each vial for kittens treats a 2 kg rabbit. If you do not know the weight of your bunny, please visit your vet for advice. Never home treat or overdose a rabbit on medication if you are unsure. Do not use powders or flea collars. These are dangerous to rabbits.
Please DO NOT use the other flea spot on treatments. Some are toxic & fatal to rabbits.
Fur mites can appear as flaky skin on your bunny. Sometimes it can also appear as bald patches on the back or sticky areas under the chin.
