    HELP! What is this??? Insect on rabbit

    Very new bunny owner here! I noticed my bunny has some thin hair around the back of his ears, but then I thought that maybe they were small bald spots. Also, as I was taking a picture of the supposed bald spots, a little creature ran right across the spot!!! Luckily the photo was live, so I...

    Rabbits fur thinning on back?

    Recently I've noticed one of my rabbits shedding a lot in a short line down her back. I was grooming her and saw a lot of dandruff and some scabbing (I'm wondering maybe from her biting at her back since she has thick fur?). I thought it was only her, but after looking at my other rabbits I...

    Flaky Skin on Bunny’s Oustide Ears

    So a couple days ago I was petting my bunny when I noticed his ears were flaking… I freaked out because I dread for him to have mites.

    Lice treatment

    Hi, my rabbit is two years old. Yesterday we noticed little black poops in his fur and today after washing him with regular rabbit shampoo I start to brush him and noticed lice (it’s live near rabbit tail). Because of coronavirus we can’t visit our vet and shops in my country don’t have much...

    Coarse Fur

    Hey, I have a netherland dwarf who has one or two small patches of coarse fur. He has unlimited timothy hay and some fresh veggies daily with pellets. His water is filtered tap water. Is it possible for his fur to have just dried out or is it dietary? I've been watching him closely for the past...
