Thread: Experience with ear infections?

  1. #1

    Default Experience with ear infections?

    Hi all,

    I got a new rabbit last week (she’s a lop and is around 5/6 months old) and went for her first check-up at the vets today. I mentioned that I’d noticed she was scratching her ears/head a bit more than I’d expect, and it turns out she has a suspected ear infection. She’s healthy other than that. The vet still needs to look at the swabs properly before getting back to me with confirmation and treatments, but she said she thinks it might be a fungal infection.

    I lost a rabbit very unexpectedly last month and so another bunny health problem so soon is getting me worried as you might expect! Just wondering if any of you have had experience with ear infections and treatment. I know my vets aren’t particularly rabbit-savvy so I’d really appreciate any comments from those that have treated this effectively

    Firstly is it possible to find a Rabbit savvy Vet ? This really can make a huge difference with every aspect of our Rabbit’s healthcare. If you are in the UK then this link may be helpful

    Unfortunately I do have rather a lot of experience with Rabbit. ear infections. I am sorry not to be able to post a lengthy more personal response due to my failing eyesight. But I hope the information on the following links may be useful

    Thank you so much for these links, they are really helpful. With regards to the vet, my plan is to go with whatever my current says for now (in terms of treatment) but if that doesn’t seem to be working I’ll try make an appointment with my nearest RWAF listed vet.

    My bunnies with ear infections were not lops, and they had middle ear infections. Sending your bunny positive vibes for a full recovery.
