Hi all,

Mo has got very dry skin in patches all over his body. he's got crusty chunks coming away occasionally attached to chunks of fur. has any one else experienced this? what is the best care?

Is your bunny called bunnie? thats confusing :lol:

Poor Mo mo, no sooner have I got one thing fixed than something else pops up. He is cute though.

:lol: "No heavy petting"

I reckon it must be mites with Mo. Especially as in another thread Jane mentioned if a bun is run down and has dental probs this is likely and he is both...either that or he is in love with the vet cos he keeps making me go back :lol:

Sorry to hear about your problems with Mo, Isabel :(

You might not have to take him in to the vets...you can buy Ivermectin on-line or in some pet shops...or the vet might let you have some without making an appointment and taking him in.

I've bought Advantage, Panacur and various other stuff from Gamston without them needing to see the rabbit :D

that sounds good! Is it an injection though? Don't think I'd be confident with that.

I think he'll only need an injection if the problem is really bad, otherwise they just use Ivermectin spot-on.

Thats brilliant I'll give them a call...they may want to see him anyway because of his history. It'll give me chance to show off his eye to Rachel anyway.
