There is a little bit of very fine hair in the area, very short though. As you can see it's not inflamed. I've never noticed it before but I suppose it could have been there a while?

I also posted a thread earlier about Clover's ear lopping when she had previously been one up/one down.

Could be that she has been scratching her self a lot. Is this Bun Clover ? If so the newly lopped ear and scratching points to ear mites.

OK! I haven't seen her scratch at all and I've been home all day yesterday and today, but I will phone vets in the morning. I'm over that way anyway helping clean out some ARC buns! I did peer in her ear but couldn't see anything out of the ordinary. Could they be further in?

You'd need an otoscope to get a proper look

Thanks :thumb: I hope she's not too uncomfortable :( She's eating and drinking well.

Do you think her husbun is likely to have gotten them too? Where do they come from? Hmph!

I just thought I'd reply with my two pence, but obviously if you are concerned at all about your bun seeking advice from the vet is best.

I have a lovely lionhead and she's always got baldy patches around her mane, especially on her neck at the base of her ears (just where your bunny's is located). It often isn't noticeable because of how the fur is laying, but when she periscopes I can always see it. I thought originally it was because we had to cut matts out when we brought her home from the rescue, but it's never really grown back... so I wonder if it is the way her fur parts and because that area gets rubbed a lot it just remains finely furred. She doesn't seem bothered by it. :D

My lionhead has a baldy spot just here too! Didn't improve or get worse with mites treatment so ive assumed it's a lionhead feature!

The ear lopping might be an ear mite problem though as already mentioned.

Been to the vet and cannot see anything in her ears. And not a speck of dandruff. Just advised to keep an eye on her.
