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.
