Hello. Sadly I have a 3 week old bunny with a head tilt. I have had a bunny with it once before but he grew out of it. This babies seems to be slightly more tilted though. Any suggestions of what to do?
Thankyou!!!

I will check. I also noticed he can tilt his heard up if he wants too. If he has a ear infection what should I do? For ttreatment

Most common causes would be an ear infection, e. cuniculi, or trauma if he was stepped on or kicked by mom. Minor head tilt can sometimes be due to ear mites. You would need to take your rabbit to the vet for proper diagnosis and treatment.

I think he may have been cocked by mom… so is it swelling that is causing his head to tilt

Inflammation, pain, either one or both.
