    I also really want a lionhead from Australia. It’s too expensive and difficult to have one shipped from overseas.

    Ear mite infestation is not serious as long as it is treated right away, otherwise they can cause a bacterial infection that will move into the middle and inner ear resulting in a more serious and possibly even fatal condition.

    Isolate your infected rabbit because ear mites easily spread and will infect other rabbits. Then thoroughly clean and disinfect the habitat and everything in the habitat; sterilizing the enclosure, bedding, food and water bowls, hides, toys, etc.

    Treatment is pretty simple. Ear mites are a parasite known as Psoroptes cuniculi, which is actually a member of the arachnid family. You can use an over-counter remedy such as Rabbit RX or a cat ear mite treatment or you can use oils such as mineral oil, baby oil, or even vegetable oil.

    When using oil, you must treat the bunnies ears for at least 4 weeks because this parasite has a 28 day life cycle. Place 2-3 drops in both ears and massage the base of the ears gently. You can use a cotton ball to to coat the inside of the ear. Do a treatment every other day for the first 10 days, and then again on the 14th, 21st and 28the days.

Do lion heads live in Penrith NSW? And are they allowed to live in NSW? If they do, please post a 'Link' with Lionhead bunnies for sale. Since my bunny died, I want a 'lion head' bunny. I can't find any results for lion head bunnies in NSW..

    How old is your rabbit? Do you have any Dutch rabbits?

We bought our lionhead in July 2009. We named her Chewey because she looked like Chewbacca. She died two weeks ago. She had a heart disorder and problems breathing. She was so much fun. She had a GREAT personality. The whole family enjoyed her and we miss her dearly.

    I just lost my little bunny today. I'm only 15 and Chloe was my first bunny. She was white, tiny and loved to be held. I had her for a short time. But I love her :(

    From what I have been told, there are not a lot of breeders in Austalia.  The country became overrun with rabbits and eating crops so they had to control the polulation.  Look for any bunny about th ame size.
  • Kristian - 2012-09-10
    damn.. I really wanted one of the lion heads because they look so cute :( I guess ill have to settle for another mini lop
  • I KNOW! - 2013-06-30
    After some research I'm sorry to say that the lionhead rabbit breed is not in Australia. I hope this is helpful. :(

    I breed lionlops because lionhead holland lop hybrids have become pretty popular now. I also know other breeders who do the same. I'm afraid I'm not in your area, and this really doesn't answer your question but all I can say is keep looking around cause lionlops are becomming quite popular
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-08-01
    Go to and enter holland Lops sale DC or Maryland and up comes a list of web sites or locations of various breeders.  Good luck.
