        As I have researched over the years I have found information saying Advantage II Kitten and Revolution Kitten are the only two flea treatments safe for bunnies. I was using Advantage II Kitten on my bun until my apartment got flea infested out of nowhere and the treatment wasn’t killing the fleas. I noticed a concentrated red spot the last time I used Advantage, but it looked th me like flea bites so I blamed the fleas. I have now switched him to Revolution Kitten. However, the last follow up extermination I had yesterday ment I had to board him. I did not have the ability due to work to call the vet for the Revolution and so I just got some Advantage II Kitten. Tonight I noticed that same big red spot as before where I applied it. I realize now that the Advantage II Kitten has been giving my bunny chemical burns. I feel like such a horrible bun bun mom that I didn’t recognize that before. Long story short I’ll only ever be using the Revolution Kitten on him. Warning to all bunny parents out there, Advantage II Kitten is not what I consider safe for bunnies. It has a chance of burning them.

          I’m so sorry this happened to you and your bunny. Unfortunately, skin reaction at the application site is a possible side effect with any spot-on flea treatment. Advantage and Revolution are generally safe for bunnies. However, each bunny can react differently to different medications. This means they could be fine with one kind, and have a skin reaction to another because the ingredients are different.

          Most bunnies though, will not experience a reaction. The risk is small and you just never know if your bunny will be one of the few that will have a reaction until it happens. So please don’t blame yourself. Sometimes it can be hard to identify a skin reaction due to medication vs. a skin reaction to flea bites.

          I’m glad that you know now what will work for your bunny. If Revolution does not cause a skin reaction, then it would be good to stick to that.

           

          PSA for anyone who might be reading (but isn’t necessarily a response to the OP) – When selecting a flea treatment for your bunny, never use a product containing fipronil (Frontline, etc.). Fipronil is toxic to bunnies. It can be deadly if applied to your bunny.
