Two debilitated rabbits kept in a poorly ventilated house were presented with a history of pruritus and crusts on the nose, lower parts of the legs, eyes, ears, face, and tails. The skin scraping examination revealed the presence of Sarcoptes scabiei. Ivermectin was administered to the affected rabbits at a dose rate of 400 μg/kg body weight by subcutaneous route four times in one month. Both rabbits responded well to this treatment and completely recovered after one month of treatment.
