I've never used Panacur before, but the vets have given me some as part of their bunny health club! Any tips on applying it to two wriggly bunnies?

I put it on some pellets or some veg.

Between a couple of basil leaves works quite well. :D

I use a saucer and push the squidgy sponge thing up and down until there is a nice lot of liquid in the saucer and then apply using the sponge (otherwise its tricky to get enough liquid on the rabbit without pushing really hard on the poor bu!)

I force the sponge off the bottle & literally pour it on, you have to press too hard on bunny with the sponge for it to work i think.

If your rabbit is fit and healthy, and keeps himself clean and tidy, then Rearguard is quite unnecessary.

Read the instuctions regarding the contra-indications before you apply regarding possible loss of appetite etc.

I'm not a fan of applying chemicals unnecessarily (if you hadn't noticed!!)

I was recommended it by the vets and the lady I board my bunnies with, but to be honest I have never done it before......not sure it's going to be that sucessful either! :roll: They are pretty clean bunnies, and I do check bums every day, just a bit of a worrier too!
