I discovered fleas on my bunny boy yesterday! So I will be combing him twice a day whether he likes it or not. Making sure to keep his nails cut short because he scratches himself. Now I think this is what caused his eye to have issues, him scratching around it. Taking his whole cage apart and washing it down.............might be doing that daily till I get rid of these creatures from h*ll.
He is 8 years old and has NEVER had fleas. I went through this over the years with my cats and my dog. It was always worse as they got older because they were more susceptible to them. Rabbit does not go outside so someone (or me) brought one or more in as a hitchhiker. Just walking outside but especially in grass can bring them in. I will be vacuuming like a crazy woman every day and washing his various sleeping rugs and things too. They have got to go!
A friend has a rabbit and after an all over wet comb she dips the comb in rubbing alcohol but combs only the back of his neck so he can't lick it off. Kills the beasties off.
Seems to work for her bunny boy.
