I know I keep posting on here but I'm worried about my rabbit (Jeff's) ear. He is itching it alot and won't move it. I can't see anything inside but could it be something worth worrying about? I'll attach some images below but they aren't very good because he won't stop moving xD. He's eating, drinking and toileting fine.

With there also being excessive scratching, I would suggest having a knowledgeable rabbit vet check your rabbit right away. Lack of normal ear movement and excessive scratching, can be an indication or ear mites or an ear infection.

I'm not certain from the photo, but it looks like that part of the inside bottom near the ear canal, might look puffy. If it is, your rabbit could have an aural hematoma, which could be the cause of the irritation, or it could have occurred secondary to one of the other ear issues. Either way, it's best to get it checked out.

Hi! Thanks so much for replying, I've looked at your list and ther is a good rabbit vet really close! That's really lucky, thanks so much for the list! I took another picture where you can see further into his ear so I'll attach that. I'll see if we can book him in to the vet soon, thanks again!

I looked inside the ear that he's holding down from a different angle and I found like a crusty thing (idk if it is anything bad) does this have to do with ear mites or a possible infection?

Could well be ear mites. Vet will be able to help. Don't try to remove the scabs. Hope he gets better soon.
