Bacteria Overgrowth on Bunny’s Ears

So a bunny parent had emailed me about her rabbit Otto’s rash on his ears. It started out small and then began to spread.  Her vet did a culture and determined it was an overgrowth of bacteria and prescribed Nolvasan (a topical solution) to use twice a day for 10 days.  After 10 days it did not look any better so she too him back to the vet. Within his ear, pus was found so the vet gave her some Baytril Otic drops to use. See pics below.

So Otto’s mom asked me to share this information in case anyone else has this issue with their bunny. She knows that it was painful for her bunny until it went away as he was not himself. So don’t try to treat this yourself, get help right away. Here is Otto’s ear fully recovered…….looking good Otto!

Brownie – Where have you been????

So I do have to apologize to Brownie’s mom as she sent me these pics awhile back and I didn’t have time to post – but better late then never.  Brownie was still enjoying a vacation for sorts staying at her Aunt’s house (although I think she should be back at her home if her Auntie was wiling to give up that precious girl – will ask for an update).  So check out cutie pie Brownie – also having fun. She looks so happy all the time, doesn’t she? Better than running the streets and yards out in Lockport IL where we rescued her from. Here is Brownie having some hay – well a girl has to eat you know….. next Brownie is enjoying her favorite past time – hiding in cardboard boxes and shredding newspaper – oh the simple things in a bunny’s life.

Here are Brownie’s cousins Morticia and Blackberry. What beautiful bunnies they are. They seem to like the spotlight. Morticia is the white bunny and Blackberry the black bunny. Sweethearts as I believe they are a bonded pair. Hmm need a pic of them together – will work on that.

So when looking at Brownie remember she was rescued from outdoors on one of the coldest winter days I can remember.  Always keep a look out for domestic rabbits that are running free outside at any time of year.  THE ONLY BUNNIES YOU SHOULD SEE OUTSIDE ARE EASTERN COTTONTAILS THAT ARE BROWN. NOT ANY OTHER COLOR OR PATTERN. See below.

If you see a bunny outdoors and are not sure if it is wild or domestic, call your local rescue or animal shelter for assistance.  Take a picture and figure out if it needs to be rescued.  Remember you can be a hero, just keep a watch out and do something to help. Make  a call, inquire, donate, volunteer for Brownie and all the other bunnies that have been rescued and that need to be rescued.
