Tending the Rabbits and Their Ears

Ok, this posting is pretty gross - Ear mites in a rabbit! Yuck.

They got pretty bad in the older rabbit - the babies haven't any sign of them.

The only real way to clean them is to wrap the rabbit up in a towel and hold her while someone else digs them out and applies the medicine.

The good news is that she is healing up quickly. Her ears are much better, and she seems to be in a better mood, too.
The bad news is that we are all creeped out - EVERYONE has itchy ears! The younger kids had trouble getting to sleep after helping with this one!
