    My bunny has been shaking his ears after I grip them for awhile. I know this can be a sign of ear mites, but
    He doesn't have a fever
    I don't see anything in his ears
    And he passed a health check just last Saturday.
    So what else could it be?

    Are they red looking inside, like an ear infection? Or crusty dirty inside, that would be mites. Saturday to Thursday is plenty of time for something to come up.

    No, his ears are clean and healthy. They don't look irritated or anything. No cankers, just the shaking after I've held him for a while. "Hair stress" has been suggested to me. [​IMG] I know a horse that gets that, it's when long hairs by his ears tickle him. This probably wouldn't be it right?
