I took my rabbit to the vet yesterday with the suspicion that he probably had ear mites, turns out he does (they even let me see the sample they took from his ear under the microscope, cool but gross). The doctor put some kind of medicine in his ear saying it would kill the mites, and prescribed him some ear drops, specifically tresaderm. I left the appointment feeling good, because I thought that I now had everything needed to treat him. But as I looked at the ear drops I saw that tresaderm is only used for cats and dogs. I became concerned and went to google, trying to find out if it was actually safe for me to give him these ear drops, and furthermore, whether or not they would actually kill the mites. From what I'm reading online, the ear drops he was prescribed will not kill ear mites, and is simply just to help heal any ulcers that have formed in his ears. This is incredibly frustrating, especially because I dont have money to take him for another appointment if the mites do come back. I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would be helpful.
