Should I Keep the Head Collar on My Rabbit?
(United Kingdom )
My doe rabbit, Rose has been spayed recently and after the surgery she took a reaction to the stitches that were used to heal her wound after the operation.
The stitches were removed, replaced with staples and she was given the collar of shame (head collar) to wear for 10 days.
Her staples were removed today and the wound is healing well but due to having the collar on for such a long time and being unable to clean and groom herself she got an infection and ear mites!
She's now been given ear drops and 'Spot On' to treat the infection but I'm wondering if I should put the head collar on again to prevent her from over cleaning/scratching the infected ear and then making it worse.
Any positive advice or tips would be appreciated.
