Went to see to my bunnies this afternoon and Smokey was shaking his head.He also was putting his paws towards his mouth.
I couldn,t see anything wrong having checked him over.He didn,t eat his treat that i took him out that he usually gobbles up.
Took his veg out and his favoutite oat hay and he has eaten the lot.
Do you think he may have mites in his ears or teeth problems?

it could be, i would take him to the vet for a check-up just to be sure :wink:

best to get your bunny checked out

at the worst it could be a sign of something that could lead to head-tilt

When Squidgy was shaking his head, he had ear mites and was given an injection of ivermectin (I think) once every 10 days for 3 doses.It soon cleared it up.

sounds like ear mites - my benjamin has had them twice, oscar once, they just fling their ears about and shake their head, and use their paws to scratch their ears..
