    NB- If you think your Rabbit is unwell it is essential to seek immediate veterinary attention.

    There is loads of info on the internet re. Pasteurella in rabbits. Here are a few links:

    http://www.lbah.com/rabbits/pasteurella.htm

    http://www.rabbit.org/care/pasteurella.html

    http://www.rabbitnetwork.org/articles/past.shtml

    It's not just snuffles...Pasteurella can cause abscesses and infections anywhere in the body. One of my pasteurella buns had head tilt and pustulles on his willy! ( ). So you need to keep a close eye on pasteurella buns

    Yeah i just read the 2nd link Jane posted and now feel rather ill!

    Ginger gets an extra close eye on her anyway for other reasons.

    Thanks for all those abbymarysmokey (and for gawd sake, if i type MONKEY once more whilst typing out your name...)

    I'm keeping an eye on this thread and reading those articles cos Nutmeg is a pasteurella bunny and I'm wondering if Mischa is now too.

    Pasturella can survive on your hands, clothing etc for weeks at a time, it can cause infection almost anywhere. Many buns are pasturella buns because they carry it.

    The difference with active pasturella or pasturellosis is that it is causing problems such as eye problems, snuffles, etc and infection is apparent and requiring treatment.

    What symptoms does your bunny have graham? Lots of vibes xx

    P.s People keep pasturella and non pasturella buns together without problems in many cases. Varying views on the matter.
