Illness of a rabbit with dripping ears

There is one decisive difference between a sagging-eared rabbit and a standing-eared rabbit. That is, rabbits with lop-eared ears are susceptible to certain diseases. It is especially susceptible to ear diseases, and in the case of dripping ears, the air permeability of the ears is poor, and moisture tends to accumulate, making it easy to get sick. Let’s see what kind of illness there is.

otitis externa

A disease that causes inflammation of the outer ear. The main causes are infections such as bacteria, fungi and ear mites. If you get this disease, you will get a lot of earwax. Rabbits perform behaviors such as shaking their ears and head, and scratching with their hind legs. If you notice it, let’s go to the hospital. As a preventive measure against illness, you should clean your ears frequently.

Otitis media

A disease that causes inflammation of the middle ear. It is caused by a bacterial infection, especially Pasteurella. In the case of this disease, it is often difficult for rabbits to notice it because of their gestures.

Labyrinthitis

A disease that causes inflammation of the inner ear. It is caused by staphylococci, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, etc. Rabbits have behaviors such as tilting and rolling when they have labyrinthitis. If you notice it, let’s go to the hospital.

Hairball disease

Cats are also a common illness, but rabbits can also get this illness to groom their hair. It is a disease in which the hair that is groomed and swallowed in the stomach accumulates and becomes spherical, clogging the digestive tract. American Fuzzy Lop and others are long-haired and are susceptible to this disease. Take the rabbit to the hospital if you have a dung that is connected by hair or if you lose your appetite.
