    Only just noticed your last post so, sorry as my reply is hugely overdue!

    Well, I completed 5 weeks of Panacur which is, I believe, one week more than was necessary. He is, generally, doing ok although he has peed outside of the tray on occasions, but nothing as bad as it was prior to the course of Panacur. I am also still changing his litter tray twice a day, which I think in the accepted norm is still way too much - especially as he is in the garden as well, but I think overall his output has improved for the better. I also wonder if the tray gets so soiled as I don't use a conventional litter - but just paper and hay. I do believe EC can leave lasting damage to kidneys, but who knows as this is not actually a confirmed case of EC.

    We did have to give him a 'minor' clean up in the week, but again it wasn't nearly as bad as prior to the Panacur.

    Otherwise, I must admit he does still have the 'lump', which I am monitoring. The vet did say she didn't think it was anything untoward but I will probably end up having to take him back for another look. I and probably just about everyone else I guess, hate taking him to the vet. I always expect bad news and it stresses him out no end

    The other thing with Teddy is, I don't know his age. The rescue thought about 2 years when I got him around 4 or 5 years ago (must look that up), but judging by the way he (doesn't!) spring up from his litter tray, I suspect he is older. Not knowing his age doesn't really help, as ultimately if in the future treatments were to be explored, age does come into it as of course it might be worthwhile putting a youngster through an op/procedure etc. but we might have different considerations with an elderly bunny.

    Thanks for asking I do hope all is well with your end!

    Good evening Cara, and nice to hear from you

    I'm glad there seems to have been some improvement with young Teddy. The Panacur seems to have worked well for him, even though he still has issues. Twice a day, unless he's a really big hay eater and therefore drinker, is probably quite a lot, but hay and newspaper aren't as absorbent as some other litters. I use hay and newspaper and one of my rabbits needed changing twice daily

    I take it the lump isn't getting any bigger or smaller? Can you remind me where it is again?

    The lump is between his ears.

    Although it was obvious to me, the vet actually struggled to feel it but then agreed it was there. I described it as 'Landscape' as rather than a contained round bump, as it has span to it, if that makes sense. I don't think it has particularly changed, but the general area does feel knobbly as he also has odd bits of clumpy fur there at the moment!
