These days my rabbit just keeps on having hair patches on her ears and the other one loses hair from the nose area and i'm worried abt it, i already searched it on google and said that it was because of lice, mites and fleas although i can't even find one on their whole body, are there any solutions for this? ( also searching veterinary clinics rn ).224164233_347858980203235_2915112541794560000_n.jpg223987165_347476997005994_7729802893968010678_n.jpg223830282_411459300291690_5071699903086784253_n.jpg

You can't really see mites without a microscope. So yes, your rabbits could possibly have mites, though usually with mites there will either be dandruffy skin or crusty skin.

With the circular looking spots of missing fur on the black rabbits ears, it looks more to me like it could be ringworm. So my best guess is this is possibly ringworm/fungal dermatitis and not mites. If it is ringworm, be careful handling your rabbits and wash your hands afterwards, as ringworm can be passed to people.

Medirabbit: fungal dermatitis

Medirabbit: fur mites

Medirabbit: sarcoptes mange mite
