My rabbit has been loosing a lot of fur for a few weeks now. I am constantly pulling out fur. I don't know if it is her just molting or if she has mites. She is loosing fur every where on her body but mostly on her back. Most of the fur coming out is coming out in plugs with a tiny piece of skin attached at the end of it. Where the fur is coming out there is new fur coming in. She also has little dandruff where the fur is coming out. If she did not have the dandruff then i would think that she is just molting. But I don't know if she just has dry skin or if it is mites. Is it normal for rabbits to have a little dandruff while molting? If rabbits have mites, would the skin where the fur is coming out be their normal skin color? And is it true that you can put flax seed oil in rabbits food to help with dry skin? Please help! By the way other then the fur loss she seems happy and healthy and is acting normal! (Sorry for the bad grammar)
