    Default Natural Wormers?

    Does anyone know if there is a natural wormer for rabbits that works?

    I've heard of a produce called entracare which is apparently supposed to offer protection from intestinal worms and other pathogens. Does anyone know if its any good? http://www.naturalfeeds.co.uk/rabbit.html

    The other product is Verm X which is again supposed to be natural.

    The only one I've heard of and tried is Verm-X but my bunnies wouldn't eat it!

    TBH rabbits don't generally suffer from intestinal worms. But I would recommend worming for 28 days bleaching the enclosure on days 21 and 28 to prevent EC.

    I think I read somewhere that thyme is a natural wormer. I could be completely wrong though!

    I wouldn't think bunnies get worms that often, the main reason for worming as such is to protect against EC and I don't think verm x is designed for that.

    Yes, someone said that here recently I think about how it helps expel worms.
