    Default Quick lapizole question

    Never used it before

    Is the dose for a 2.8kg bunny 2.8 mls? Or am I being a bit dim

    Thanks. Thats what I thought, seems an awful lot to get in her when she would only need 0.6mls of panacur

    yes they prefer the taste, its aniseed isn't it
    well lisa had mowgli on that at first, i think he must be the only rabbit that hated it though and put his front paws up to say please no
    he liked panacur instead

    Oops sorry Liz, yep its 2.8ml They gave us the lapizole as they said we'd end up needing loads of tubes of panacur Hope shes had it ok for you xXx

    ETA, Did mum put the syringe in the box with the bottom of panacur... i hope she did! As thinking about it its not as much as it would be from a normal syringe! The vet told us to pull it up to the 2.8 mark on the syringe xXx

    I just put it on a saucer and they lap it up!

    Never use the trigger syringe it comes with as its really strong and I think could result in aspiration.

    I must have done something really wrong them as I only had a 1ml syringe in with the lapizole so I needed nearly 3 of those and it took me 2 whole biscuits to fit all the liquid on and I still ended up with it in the sink up my arms and on the floor

    Just bumping this up as I am sure I am doing this wrong, there is no way I could get the 2.8mls of a quarter or a biscuit like Becky was doing
