      We have two free roam indoor rabbits with no other animals that they are in contact with. I’ve noticed that since yesterday one of our bunnies seems to be shaking her head/ears more than she typically does, followed by scratching them (mostly the right one). I haven’t noticed any other changes out of the ordinary – eating, drinking, pooping, running around like she does. I checked her ears with a flashlight and didn’t notice anything red, irritated or scaly. I don’t know if I’m being too paranoid and should give her a few days or if I should take her to the vet to check her ears (maybe for mites?). Is there anything I should be checking for and/or cleaning her ears to see if that makes a difference. Any help would be appreciated.

      I would not recommend cleaning her ears, as (like with human ears) you could potentially damage the internal structures by trying. If it visually looks clear and absent of gunky, gross stuff, it may just be a strand of fur or something your rabbit is trying to sort out (especially if she is molting right now).

      I would give it a few days and if you still see it, then a vet appointment may be more warranted to see if there may be an ear infection/irritation in the inner ear starting to develop.

      Thank you! This is very helpful. They are both molting right now.  There seems to be less scratching so far today so I’ll just keep an eye on her.
