    I've used the eye drops for eye infections in my buns. I've also used the eye drops applied in the ears for ear infections.

    I have buns here at the sanctuary with front legs bowed inwards like a bulldog (Pudding) and outwards like a seal (Meg).

    I had a rabbit with neurological problems (she had seizures) who would pull her claws out. I'm sure it wasn't a behavioural/boredom issue for her.

    I'm sure once a week won't be enough, even with a long acting penicillin. My vet only advises once weekly penicillin for rabbits who are currently fine but have a history of recurring infection or...

    I've used it a lot, and find it to be one of the best antibiotics for infections with lots of puss. Apparently it can cause digestive upsets, but I haven't had a problem with this (so far). I've had...

    Abscesses at the base of the ear are most likely to be both internal AND external. They usually start off as a nasty inner/middle ear infection, and eventually come up as an abscess visible...

    My Herman had a growth affecting his intestines. We think it was an abscess because he had a recurring abscess on his face too (not dental or injury related). We decided not to open him up because it...

    Not sure I fully understand the question/situation.

    By stomach, do you actually mean stomach...or do you mean an abscess in the abdomen area?

    Try pulling the skin upwards to 'tent' it more. I find the penicillin wont come out if I haven't tented the skin enough and the needle ends up sticking into the skin on the other side, rather than in...

    I'm not sure about an answer to your question because it would depend on whether the pus is wet or dried, how much pus, etc. Don't suppose you have any photos showing Grim's eyes?

    I just wanted...

    Ditto what prettylupin and others have said, but I'd also get the vet to check her over for bladder or kidney problems. In my experience both bladder and kidney disease cause loss of muscle around...

    My experience with wildies is that they can be quite aggressive, so introducing this little one to other rabbits or back to the wild needs to be done really carefully.

    Is your bun on metacam? Metacam helps reduce inflamation so would be a big help.

    Do you mean he is struggling to get away, or just that he clamps his mouth shut so you can't get the syringe in?

    If he's going nutty trying to get away, perhaps let him calm down for a bit and try...

    The only experience of low white blood cell count (leukopenia) in rabbits was due to a heavy worm burden. My vet said cancer or severe infection often leads to leukopenia too though.
