A lot of mammals can catch fleas, tiny insects that live on them, feed on their blood, and can cause incessant itching and discomfort. Though rabbits are not exposed to fleas as often as cats and dogs, they are particularly vulnerable to them and the diseases they carry, such as myxomatosis. Having your rabbit vaccinated against the diseases that fleas can carry is the most important step in taking care of them.

However, to keep your pet rabbit free from the discomfort and itching that fleas can cause, you need to find the right flea treatment for rabbits. That’s precisely what we at Time for Paws can offer.

Our range of flea treatment for rabbits

We have a selection of the top brands for protecting your rabbits from the risk of fleas. This includes Advantage products, Harkers Ridmite, Beaphar Fly Guard and Insect Repellent foam, and Johnson pest sprays. We recommend you take a closer look at each of them to find the most effective approach for your rabbit, in particular.

For instance, there are products that are rubbed on like foams, or sprayed directly on their fur. You should also take a look at how long each product lasts them for, and for what size of rabbit they’re supposed to be used on.

The risk that fleas pose to your rabbits

As mentioned, fleas carry a range of infectious diseases, including myxomatosis. Having your rabbit fully vaccinated can ensure that they’re protected from this most dangerous of diseases, but that’s not the only danger that fleas present.

Fleas feed off the blood of their hosts. An unmanaged infestation can see your rabbit getting drained of a lot of that vital essence, which can lead to anemia. Furthermore, fleas cause a lot of itching, and the incessant scratching can irritate and damage the skin. This can lead to problems with their coat and skin, but it can also lead to infections which can become serious, even life-threatening.

Prevention is the best cure

If your rabbit itching or chewing a lot at its lower base or the base of its tail, you should use a fine toothed flea comb to find if any of the miniscule pests are hiding it in its coat. Prevention is the best cure, but many of the flea treatments here can also treat active infestations.

Flea treatment for rabbits is designed to kill fleas on contact. Furthermore, they are designed to remain active in their coat for up to four months at a time. Besides using these treatments, don’t; forget to talk to your vet about their own recommended flea treatment program.

Let Time for Paws help protect your rabbit

Our bunny buddies deserve a happy, healthy life as free from discomfort and the risk of disease as possible. For that reason, we encourage you to take a close look at our range of flea treatment for rabbits. If you have any questions or need any help choosing between the different products, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team.
