View Full Version : C & S test Question - snuffles

I need a quick answer to this one, cant find it anywhere, got to get to the vets in half hour for Barneys dental...

For a Culture and Sensitivity test to be done successfully, does the bunny have to be experiencing a flair up when they take the sample?

Barney's snuffles has calmed down at the moment but hes having a dental and I dont know whether to take the oppurtunity to do a C&S test whilst hes under GA. I wouldnt put him under GA especially to do it as he reacts so badly to being under.

He needs to of been clear of ABx for at least 7 days.

The C&S needs to get at the bacteria causing the infection, so in theory, yes, i would assume it would need to be 'active' so to speak.

when matt had his few he had to come off his antibiotics for 7-10 days and we had to try and push it up from that if at all possible. :wave:
