My Rabbit Has Fleas | Safe Flea Treatments for Rabbits

Because fleas can affect dogs and cats, all animals in the house should be treated. There are no rabbit specific drugs for managing fleas. All products used are for dogs and cats and their use in rabbits is described as “off-label”. Topical cat medications such as Advantage™ or Revolution™ appear to be safe but should ONLY be used under the guidance of a veterinarian familiar with rabbits. Topical flea powders, premise sprays or even professional pest exterminators may be used but consult your veterinarian first. Since flea eggs fall off the animal and adult fleas can live off the rabbit in carpets and other areas of the home, it is very important to treat the environment as well as the pet. Depending on environmental humidity and temperature, flea eggs may hatch in as little as 14 – 28 days, producing the next crop of adult fleas looking for a blood meal. Treatment must be long enough to get the last egg hatched. Consult with a veterinarian familiar with rabbits regarding the proper topical and environmental treatments.

Items 1 - 10 of 48 - Advantage Flea treatment for rabbits - pack of 4 doses

If your problem has become too severe for a flea comb to work, a few flea treatment medicines that can work on rabbits in small doses are Advantage, Program, and Revolution. Make sure that the medicine and dose you use is recommended by your veterinarian. Also, when you apply it, the medicine should be placed in the center of the rabbit’s neck so he cannot groom it off himself. If the rabbit ingests the medicine it could be bad for its health.
