What can I do for my rabbit that has a bite on his ear?

Make sure that you clean out the bite to prevent infection. Also you may want to wrap the rabbits ear until it's healed to help from germs and dirt getting into it. Keep an eye on it over the next few days to make sure it's healing properly and nothing is wrong.

If the rabbit has a bite on his ear, the immediate intervention that you can do is by giving a first aid in wounds. You can put an alcohol on the ear of the rabbit to disinfect the site of bite and prevent the infection. Or you can apply a povidone iodine or betadine by swabbing it using cotton balls.

The best thing to do when your rabbit as an injury is to wash the cut or bite with a mild soap and luke warm water. If the cut looks a little infected then you can put a little human cut cream on it. Make sure to work it in really well so your rabbit doesn't eat it.

Just keep the area as clean as you can and watch it carefully. If it looks infected, make sure you go to a vet with experience with rabbits.

Clean the bite area on your rabbits ear with soap and water. Cut any fur near the area. Place a liberal amount of antibiotic cream on bite. Since band-aids won't stay, give the antibiotic 15 minutes to absorb, and then place a coat of Vaseline over the bite as a protection. Keep them from digging the bite when possible.

It should be treated with an anti-bacterial such as hydrogen peroxide or alcohol to keep it from getting infected. If it does get infected, red, inflamed, swollen and puss, then the rabbit should see a vet for an antibiotic and to possibly be drained depending on the extent of the infection.
