rabbit ear mites - Page 2

post #11 of 18

There are so many safe topical medications that work well for ear mites there is no need to use an injectable.  Particularly when you don't know how safe it is, how effective it is, or how much to use.

The reason I wondered about ivermectin is they say one injection and it works fast. Have you heard this.

This is true! I rather like injectable Ivermectin.

My rabbit had babies outside her box. I think they froze and shecthen ate them. I put hay in there should I use a heat lamp?

If you have a good nest box you probably won't need a heat lamp.  If she has them outside the box on the wire it isn't going to matter what you do they aren't going to make it.  When I was raising rabbits I had very limited patience with does that had their babies outside the nest box.  The first time she did it I rebred her immediately.  If she did it again she was dinner.

I found this in my bunnies ears but I read online to get rid of wax you can use any time of oil to loosen it and they will shake it out themselves, I used sunflower oil as it was the only one available it ended up going on her back and head oops 😂 I patted her over with lukewarm water with my hand but she keeps waving her ears around don't know wether it's because she's getting the oil out or because she's got ear mites HELLP 😭

Get a magnifying glass.  If she has ear mites you can see them crawling around.
