Ear mites, specifically Psoroptes cuniculi, are a common parasite found in rabbits. These mites are relatively large and oval-shaped, with moderately short legs and long segmented suckers. The lifecycle of ear mites is approximately 21 days, with adult females laying eggs in the wax and debris of the ear canal. The eggs hatch into larvae after four days, and then mature into adults after a couple of molts.
Ear mites are primarily transmitted through direct contact with infected rabbits, as well as through infected fomites. An ear mite infection can cause severe irritation in the ear canal, known as otitis externa, which results in itching and scratching of the ears. Affected rabbits may appear head-shy and have a subdued demeanor, and their ears may be congested with a thick crusting exudate. In severe cases, the lesions can spread to other parts of the body such as the face, neck, and forelimbs.
To confirm a diagnosis, the mite can be visualized through an otoscopic examination of the ear. A sample of debris from the ear can also be collected and examined under a microscope. Treatment options for ear mites include a variety of anti-parasite treatments such as topical ivermectin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Softening the crusts with mineral oil and avoiding their removal is also advised. To prevent re-infection, decontamination of the enclosure and extending treatment for longer than 21 days is necessary. Any new rabbits joining a group or household should also be clinically examined for parasites. In normal healthy rabbits, routine ear cleaning is not typically necessary, but lop-eared breeds may benefit from occasional cleaning of the ear canal to prevent wax build up.
If left untreated, an ear mite infection can become very debilitating for the affected rabbit. The infection can lead to weight loss, gut stasis, and secondary bacterial infections. It can also progress to more severe forms of otitis, with potential rupture of the tympanic membrane and development of neurological signs. Prompt treatment of an ear mite infection is therefore strongly advised.
