Flea Treatment for Rabbits
If you own a rabbit, you may think you and your pet are in the clear with flea infestations, but rabbits can also contact fleas just like cats and dogs. While it is far less common for companion rabbits to contact fleas, they have been known to get both cat and dog fleas, as well as rabbit fleas (Spilopsyllus cuniculi). It can be tricky to diagnose your rabbit, since rabbits are prone to other skin conditions, so your veterinarian can be a great resource when dealing with rabbit fleas.

Fleas on rabbits
If fleas are in your area, or on other pets or animals in your area, your rabbit could get fleas. Eggs will get deposited on bedding and in the cracks of nest boxes, and the adults will feed on the rabbits. Signs of a rabbit flea infestation can vary from rabbit to rabbit, but reactions and signs can include: self-biting, excessive scratching and licking, flea bite marks, flea feces (or flea dirt), flea eggs, increased heart rate in anemic animals, and secondary infections. If you have not seen fleas or evidence of fleas but your animal is displaying other signs, take your rabbit in to the veterinarian; your rabbit could have another skin infection, separate allergic reaction, or parasites like ear mites.
Rabbit flea treatment
Rabbits tend to have very sensitive skin, so you must consider your own rabbit’s health before considering treatment. Killing the live fleas on the rabbit will be your first priority.
Dusts: You can purchase dust products formulated for flea control. They may contain pesticides like pyrethrum or rotenone, and must be applied several times over a few weeks. Depending on your rabbit’s skin sensitivity, you might need to choose a gentler, chemical free solution, such as boric acid dust, diatomaceous earth, or silica products. Dusts are preferred because they are gentler on rabbits.
Shampoos, dips, sprays, etc: These products can be very harsh on rabbits. If you choose this type of treatment, take extreme care.
Spot-on treatments: It is possible to use spot-on treatments for cats and dogs, like Advantage, on rabbits. Talk to your veterinarian.
After you treat your pet, move on to getting rid of fleas, eggs, and larvae in the rabbit’s environment. Bedding material should be burned, and nest boxes should be scrubbed out with household bleach and hot water.
