Will Defendex work on rabbits that have either body, fur or mange mites?

Dear Gene,

It may be difficult to get the shampoo to the skin where it will reduce mites most effectively if the fur is quite dense. It might not be all that easy to get them rinsed well either. I would also be concerned with how much of the product a small animal, such as a rabbit, would ingest because of the residue left from inadequate rinsing. One needs to be very careful to not stress the rabbit so that kicking and back injury is to be avoided. Since you know your rabbit you might have some some idea how you would deal with each of those concerns.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
