Mites

by Meg
(UK)

Hi
I have just been to feed my rabbit and noticed a single mite crawling on her side. The only place I can think of seeing a mite like this before is in flour, if anyone knows what I mean. I haven't looked for more yet but I know that this mite will not be alone.

She has never had mites before, does anyone know what could have caused this and what I should do to get rid of them? She has been at a friends house in their garden for 5 weeks when we were on holiday and there she was outside in her hutch whereas at home she is in an indoor porch.

That, as well as some hay they bought her is the only change. Is it likely to be the hay? Please help! I love my Bunny!
