I've used xeno 450 in the past, but I'm pretty sure I read something bad about it. My rabbits have nothing I know of in the way of fleas and mites, but we are moving to a field, and they will be close ish to sheep and chickens, so I and drugging them up with anything I can get my hands on at the moment.
Should I just stick to the xeno 450? Or use something else?

Also does anyone where they hide the panacur 10% liquid on vet uk? I can only find the paste, which I don't want to use.

Ta for any help!

I think xeno 450 is fine to use..xenex is the one that's caused bad reactions in the past I think :?

Thank you, will be getting some xeno then. Blimey its getting pricey!

Is the panacur in the link just for dogs and cats, or is it safe for buns too?

You can buy the Ivermectin in liquid bottles too but vetuk dont seem to have em. They work out much cheaper.

You can buy a Jhonsons flea powder from most pet shops, it's especially for small animals. With my rabbit it always works in one treatment, you have to stop the rabbit grooming its self for half an hour though :roll:

no this is the proper vet stuff that they use at all the vet practices. Much better product than the johnsons products.

Ivermectin is good for treating mites but it's not very effective against fleas, I'm afraid.
You would be better off using something like Advantage if you want to get rid of fleas xx
