    Default Unwanted french lop issues

    I agreed to take on a male french lop who has been neglected subsequently has behaviour problems. He has a BRC ring which I have booked him in to have be removed , overgrown nails and now discovered fur problems. After a 30 min battle of attacking he gave in allowing me to groom him he very dry/dandruff debris under his fur could this just down to lack of care?

    It could be due to fur mites. These can occur when a Rabbit is somewhat under par, in a Rabbit who has Dental problems or any type of mobility problem that may make it difficult for him/her to groom him/herself

    Hi Becky

    A rabbit often gets fur mites when their immune system is a it depleted. If you believe he's been lacking care then this could be the cause of them.

    You can get over the counter meds for that, but your vet will identify for sure and give the correct dosage per rabbit.

    The normal treatment for mites is ivermectin:

    poor poor baby! but well done for taking him in, and giving him a second chance.

    The dandruff could well be mites if has been been poorly looked after, as this will look like white dandruff in his fur? Any chance you can take him to the vets? so he can get mite treatment which will probably be ivermectin and they can help cut his nails?

    If not, you can also by mite treatment in pet shops? and will normally need a couple of treatments.

    After checking his fur thoroughly its only a patch behind his neck iv since wet and lightly grooming this area to investigate, no wounds just lots of dry skin/matting

    Hes booked in for BRC ring removal and vaccinations but not til next week so just worrying if there's a way to help him sooner
