Go to a different vet because for fur mites they are supposed to put the rabbit on a 6 week course of invermectin, which is the injection used to treat mites.

??

You must have confused this post with another one because the rabbit being talked about in this thread doesn't have mites, just tangled/matted fur.

ive googled a lot.. some says that he maybe has problems of mites but i know mites are like dut on the fur but hes not... ive read also about molting and he looks exactly like this but only at the back... its like even u slightly pull the fur will come off... even now but i stop pulling it afraid he gets overbald...

but ive read that its good to help him to avoid him eating his own fur and cause blockage..

any help? it looks like this -> http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...1t:429,r:4,s:0 but only at the back..

As I am to understand, angora's can be plucked all the time. If you think its mites you need to see a vet (to make sure) and get treatment for it. It won't go away on its own

Wait the rabbit is actually bald? That picture you showed was a bald rabbit, which isn't normal. If that's similar to what you're rabbit looks like I'd take him in to the vet.

If he's not actually bald but just has a lot of loose hair, he may just be molting. Molting is a normal process that takes place usually when the weather changes. Two of my rabbits are molting right now - I brush them everyday until they are done shedding all the old hair because I don't want them to swallow all their loose fur.

This is what he looks like.. i really dont know what happen... i just groom him like i usually do and the hair keep pulling off every single brush until he becomes like this... i can still pluck the fur easily tho (only the lower area) but i plan to stop afraid that he became more bald.. but im afraid about the blockage thing too..

And i dont see any sign of mites.. as i recall it should like like dander on the fur right? but this is nothing.. and he still acts normally :S

Ok yeah that is way too much hairloss. He needs to see a vet. That's extremely unusual. Mites are microscopic. You can usually tell your animal has them when they're itching and losing hair. See a vet.

im using the middle one to groom Shadow as it is better to pull hairs than bristle.. is it my fault? but ive used this on oreo and stardust it works well...

EDIT: I tried now, the fur easily pulled off... even with a slight pull it will off.. .. im afraid that the rabbit will groom himself and eat the fur and cause blockage, will bring him to vet tomorrow..

Wow, that's really strange. Sometimes they can get itty bitty bald patches when they molt, but nothing like that!!
And don't worry, you didn't cause this. If the fur was being yanked out by over-brushing, there would be blood. There is something else that is causing this.
