I give mine this: http://www.vetuk.co.uk/index.php?mai...oducts_id=1178 daily without a problem.
Everytime i stop putting probiotics in Scamps water he has a really bad tummy. Is it ok to use it daily? I currently have 'ProC Probiotic by Vetark' at home which ive been using but im just placing an order with vet uk and was going to order the Avipro plus? Would this be ok? Are they the same thing?
Most probiotics contain minerals, as they are designed to be used in times of illness. Not sure if the ones you have do, but they (ie minerals) shouldn't be given daily, I don't think.

It was recommended to me by a vet, when one of my buns was having too many caecotrophs. I was told to give him a scoop (provided in the box) per day. Of course, it is impossible to give something to one of them without giving to the others.
bisc and matt have avipro plus everyday, but i know the vet doesn't think probiotics make much difference, if any, and he said most have something in them that isn't naturally found in rabbits...
he said it wouldn't do any harm me carrying on with the avipro plus, and i have because while they are both ill and recovering and with them being so sensitive, i don't want to make any changes to anything yet incase they can't handle it.
he also said most probiotics are marketed for all animals, when they are usually made for one... so if you get one, get one specially for rabbits...
i want to take my two off avipro really, just scared to make any changes whilst they are like they are.
