How do i prevent it from ticks/fleas, any treatment?

try these web sites:
A tick will burry it's head into the rabbit's skin and thus only it's body will be sticking out. To see if you bunny has any ticks, you'll requirement to gently search with your hand. If you find any, you can remove it by grabbing it (with tweezers) from the area closest to the skin and pull but I do not recommend it in need being shown by a vet. Doing it wrong could result in the tick releasing more of it's saliva and risking infection, diseases, etc. Remember, these can be spread to humans.
As for fleas, a rabbit scratching excessively is the first sign. You can grasp a sheet of white paper, fluff up your bunnies fur over it. Use a spray bottle and drag your finger along the sheet where there is residue. Traces of blood shows fleas. However, any excessive scratch should be looked into.
Whatever you do, NEVER use Frontline on a rabbit! Your vet will most likely prescribe Revolution =)
