    Hi Everyone,

    Harry seems to have scabby ears, it has only been for the last week. I noticed that he seems to have scraped his ear and taken quite a long peace of skin off his ear, I kept an eye on this and that has now healed but now he has a few little scabs on both of his ears. I have checked the hutch and there are no insects in there and I cannot see anything that he would be catching his ears on, Honey is fine and there is nothing on her ears.

    Does anyone have any advise they could give me or is it another trip to the vets for poor Harry?

    Thanks

    Could it possibly a case of ear mites? The vet should be able to let you know for deff!

    Inside or outside his ears? If it is inside then I would definately get him checked for earmites, after what happened to Kodi I wont be leaving any scabs on ears unchecked.
