    Excellent advice from Omi.

    I would rather do a full course of Panacur than risk EC, especially in an older bunny, and where you know there has probably been exposure to the parasite.

    You can get puppy pens in 4' high. They tend to come as a single line of panels jointed together and clips to join the ends, so they are adjustable to any space, or you can join two sets together....

    If it is EC, you should see some improvement in a week or so, although it can also get worse, then better again. You need to prevent reinfection by cleaning anything in contact with urine as that is...

    If your vet has suggested 60ml SQ fluids per day, I would stick to that, or discuss any proposed changes with your vet. They have the training and expertise to advise you much better than any forum...

    I would ring up and ask to talk to your vet about it, unless you are going back for a checkup anyway. It may save bunny a trip, even if you still have to pick it up.

    EC treatment is normally a 28 day course of Panacur (which sorts out the parasite) and metacam (to deal with the neurological damage done by the parasite). Other companion rabbits should be treated...

    You should be able to find some brambles. They grow in any uncultivated corner and bunnies love them, despite the thorns. When I pick forage, I go for anything above knee height so it isn't likely to...

    Try soaking his pellets and leaving them on a saucer - he may find it easier with them softened. I tend to just pour some boiled water on top of a handful of pellets and let them cool before serving.

    As Jane said - you need to see a vet ASAP. You can always ring an out of hours vet for advice first, although they are likely to want to see the patient in this case.

    In your example, 0.28 ml of dog metacam would be equivalent to 0.84 ml cat metacam.
