So it’s been a few weeks and my neighbours and I have been seeing this bunny around our houses and he’s come up and takin carrots and food from all of us. Obviously he was someone’s pet and they dumped him here. We finally managed to catch him and one of them neighbours said she would keep him however she is sick right now so he will be staying with me for a few days. My question is…he most likely has fleas and who knows what else. Should I give him advantage 11 for kittens?and how much do I give. Would it harm him if he doesn’t? I have 4 other bunnies and a cat so I wouldn’t want them all to get it.
Any help is appreciated. Note: I do not have the money to bring him to the vet and I am not sure about the girl taking him. The closest exotic vet it 2 hours away so unless there is something that needs obvious medical attention I don’t think he will be going.

He seems very friendly! He kept flopping in the cage and was eating the hay and pellets I put in.

The best flea treatment for rabbits is Revolution(selamectin), but it is prescription. If Advantage is all you have, it is considered rabbit safe, though some rabbits can possibly have a negative reaction to the new Advantage II formula, so just be aware. I believe the dose is the same as it is for kittens.

(NEVER use frontline(fipronil), as it it toxic to rabbits and can be fatal)

If in doubt, always consult with a knowledgeable rabbit vet.
