Flaky skin

by Pam
(Turlock, CA USA)

My domestic rabbit (1 year old) has dry flaky skin. Any idea what could be causing it? How to treat it? He is not in a hutch all day, he has a large area to run, but is put up at night. Help please???!!!

My best guess is fur mites or fleas, but if you want a positive diagnosis, you'll need to consult your rabbit-savvy vet.

Fleas and fur mites can both be treated with kitten flea powder. Get more info at https://www.raising-rabbits.com/fur-mites-in-rabbits.html.
