Peter Rabit arrived to us after a woman released him into the wild to fend for himself! After the neighbor threatened to kill him, we agreed to take him in and be his safe haven. Building supplies are so expensive but we jumped right in to build him a hutch so he could have a home. Within a couple of days Peter Rabbit's ear started developing a crusty layer and becoming foul-smelling. We rushed them to the vet and to no surprise he contracted ear mites from being left to survive on his own and it had developed into a nasty ear infection.
Peter Rabbit finished up his daily pain medicine and we can tell he is feeling so much better! The crust and inflammation have finally cleared up in his ear canal. He was getting 8 drops in his ear twice a day for 10 days (which has been a fun process to administer -since you have to hold them in a special way so they don't kick and hurt themselves in the process).
