Med. Name?

I notice my little bunny is scratching the back of his head.
He's an indoor bunny - but my guess is he might have picked
up some type of mite.
The lady I got the bunny from mentioned a med. that deworms
a bunny and also helps with mites. She said, you put a drop on the back of their neck.
Does anyone know the name of this med? And what age the bunny would have to be?

Thanks!!

I think she is talking about Advantage for cats. That should take care of mites, but it will not deworm a rabbit, but if your rabbit is a house rabbit, she should not have worms, unless she spends time outside in the grass and dirt. The dose of Advantage is one drop per pound of rabbit, and round up. So if your rabbit is over 5 pounds but under 6 pounds, give her 6 drops.

Revolution also works on rabbits, and is put on the back of the neck, but that doesn't deworm rabbits either. Revolution works for fleas, mites and ticks, but to buy revolution, you would need a perscription. Advantage can be purchased without a perscription.

Hummmmm, I just can't remember what she mentioned.
Well, like you said, hopefully I won't have to worry about worms
since he never will be outside.

Thanks again

I would suggest a trip to the vet. They will for sure be able to tell you if what you're dealing with is mites and will also be able to tell you how best to treat it.

Good luck!

I agree with Dragonrain. Some people use Ivermectin as a topical, but using it that way will not get rid of internal parasites.

I won't dr. him. I know he doesn't have worms. I just was curious what the med. name was that the lady had mentioned to me. I honestly can't see that he would have mites - I haven't had him that long and he never goes out.

Thanks all
