    I was recently given a dwarf rabbit.She is 20 weeks old and we were unaware she had them.We used tick and flea spray for cats,then followed up with cat flea and tick powder.The symptoms she initially presented were pretty moderate dandruff in her fur and some mild balding around her neck I am not sure how soon we need to repeat.Please let me know some of your ideas and experiences.

    Please never ever use products like that on your rabbit! Rabbits are not cats and you can VERY easily kill them with toxic products.
    Revolution (selamectin) or Ivermectin are the safest options.
