Ears are a very important part of a bunny rabbit! But Cupid’s ears were in terrible pain.
He was up for sale, along with a number of other hoppers. But a kind person noticed that he looked miserable. His ears were red, hot and swollen. So she purchased him and he came to Best Friends for immediate medical care.
He’s a surprisingly friendly bunny, for someone who hasn’t yet had a loving home. He’s sure to make somebody a terrific pet someday.
But right now, those ears are a bit of an emergency. The pain has to be awful. In addition to being badly infected, tests showed that those ear canals were absolutely full of mites. So it must itch, too!
But the good news is he should be curable. Treating ear mites isn’t difficult – it just very much needs to be done! The more dangerous part is the infection. Has it gone on so long that there’s permanent damage to the inside of his ears? We really hope not. But no matter what, we’ll make sure he gets lots of loving and comfort as he has his treatments and recovers from the horrible way he’s been feeling for so long.
