hi peeps, ive got a bit of a problem on my hands.

basically few weeks ago i discovered my rabbit had fur mites on his ears. took him vet and treated him with ivermectin jabs - he had his 3rd one yesterday. during this period vet said i should wash the ears (dont worry not the whole rabbit! lol) so i did this about twice a week with anti parasite shampoo. i have also been cleaning/washing/spraying everything. i thought i was out of the woods but have now discovered they are also on his head! :( why are they now on another area (they werent on his head originally when vet checked) and why are the jabs plus washing not working?? should i now also start using spot on treatment?? ive done endless research online and just cant seem to get anywhere.

would really appreciate any advice
