Thread: Routine ear cleaning

  1. #1

    Default Routine ear cleaning

    Hi! The vet today said my lop rabbits are in good health at their annual vaccination visit.

    He did suggest though that i use otoact routinely as a preventative to prevent any wax build up or ear abscesses in the future.

    It says to squirt and massage it into the ear twice a week. Does anyone else do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can i just ask how often do you use the solution in the ear? It says 2/3 times a week. Is this what is generally done as part of a weekly routine?

    Depends on the Bunny. I check with an Otoscope every couple of days. I only use an ear cleaning solution if there is a wax build up. Usually only needed a couple of times a week maximum.
