Some improvements

10 days had past and the bunnies got better and made some improvements. Some of the infected areas had dry up and revealed a new skin. Maybe i have to wait for a few more days to returned it to their owner.

I'm a Vet Now ....?

Actually there is nothing to post right now. I've been tending sick bunnies for almost 2 weeks now. They are not mine. They belongs to my friends. I'm just helping them. There are 9 bunnies infected with the sickness. They got mites and I've injected them with Ivermec, got from the vet clinic here in Terengganu. Some got better and some got worst. The worst one need to be re-inject with Ivermec.. again. These bunnies will be quarantine for 4@5 weeks to make sure they never be infected again.

Here is some explanation about mites :
Ear mites - this is very common. It is caused by the mite Psoroptes cuniculi. Sometimes another mite is involved - Sarcoptes scabiei, however this mite tends to prefer the whole head area and feet and not just the ears (note that this is a mite that isn't particular about who it infects, if you handle your infected bunny, you will also start to get itchy lesions too). What you commonly find is that your rabbit starts to shake its head a lot and scratch their ears. You would also notice greyish crusty material on the ear lobe and the ears stink.
