A two year old male rabbit was presented with history of itching; rough hair coat and hair fall from last 15 days with reddish brown crust formation on ears, paws and around eyes. Skin scraping revealed the presence of Psoroptes cuniculi (ear mite) thus diagnosing the case of ear canker. Treatment with Ivermectin (Ivomec) @ 0.02mg/kg Subcutaneously weekly for 4 weeks, Pheniramine maleate (Avil) @ 0.5 mg/kg Intramuscular and topical application of honey and turmeric mix daily for 1 week was accomplished which resulted in substantial clinical improvement recorded in terms of decreased frequency of itching, regained smooth hair coat and lusture of hair and skin.
