We have a 4 month old little black female bun called Pepperpot. We moved to a new house recently so thought we'd give all of our pets a flea treatment. We used Bob Martin's Spot On for rabbits/guinea pigs on our 2 buns.
Today, a couple of days after Pepperpot was treated, we noticed her itching a lot and looking very unsettled. When we checked her, we noticed her skin and fur full of flaky skin and little sore looking areas. The flakes are all pretty big and what with her being black they're very visible.
I've just done a bit of research on the web and the results keep coming back as fur mites but we think it could be a reaction to the Spot On.
Is there any way we can know for sure it's not mites? We'd ideally like to get her treated tonight so if we can tell for sure it is mites we can pop and get a treatment. Or, if any of your buns have had a similar reaction to a flea treatment there maybe something we can do to make her more comfortable until she can see a vet?
Our other rabbit, Alfie, had the same treatment and spends all of his time with Pepperpot but his skin is completely clear. He's itch free and settled.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
