I would buy a bottle of the 10% oral liquid instead. It's about 13 for 100ml.

If you still want it in the rabbit paste form you can get it in batches of 5 here:

Which saves a bit of money

i see we were right and pets at home were wrong ;) two tubes of pancur is nowhere near enough for all your bunnikins.

Just a one off dose? Clearly she knows nothing. Did yours come with a white prescription label stick on it that tells you how to dose them? Like human prescription drugs do.

The packaging on Panacur says something like 8 or 9 days. My Vet gave me one tube per rabbit which will be enough for that short period, but I am buying some more to do the 6 week treatment.

The short 'preventative' dose is 9 days and IMO every 4 months is too frequently in a rabbit that does not have a symptomatic infection. It could be counterproductive against natural immunity.

I'll let you know when the liquid arrives. I've tried the paste and lilly won't have any of it. I hollowed out her treats and put it inside and she really hates it, as soon as she tastes the paste she gives a little 'yuck' shake of her head and stops eating it :? . Roo however gulfs down the whole treat like a good girl :)

I'm going to try putting the liquid into a treat and see if that goes down better.

I would use vetuk instead....they only charge 3.56 per tube and you can order as many as you like. Delivery is free and it usually comes within two days. :)

They're both the same except you need to give more of the liquid as it is a lower concentration :(
