Dandruff, thick, and crusty, and tiny black bugs crawling in scalp


Does anyone know what the problem is with my rabbit?

I shaved his fur because he has thick, crusty, dandruff on his skin located on his back and sides. Also, saw very tiny black bugs crawling along his skin and that is why I shaved his fur. He is a 6 year old mini lop male rabbit.

Thank you for your help.

Treating mites NEW
by: Colly

Please be very careful with your poor bunny with regards to shaving fur! My two rabbits both have mites at the moment and it is a slow process getting rid of them, but your bunny needs expert treatment from a vet, brushing gently and lots of extra love and care. The mites will go eventually. good luck.

I have them coming out of my porws and so does my chihuahua. Have you ever gotten a satisfactory response from the Vet?
