    We'll see what the vet says and then I can go from there. Fingers crossed that we might have found the problem.

    Just wanted to add that we are on day 8 of a 9 day worming course, and after struggling to get Chilli to take the wormer for the first 3 days I was tearing my hair out.
    What finally worked for us was mixing it in to a teaspoon of apple puree. He loves the stuff, and will happily eat it from a saucer without me having to pin him and down and force feed it to him.

    Hi Swissgreys.

    I'm glad you found a way to get the medicine to be munched! Ours haven't had apple before so couldn't use that. But I'm sure I can hide it on something, otherwise it will have to be 9 days of stress. :-(

    It's the 28 day course of Panacur that I dread!

    I've just been reading through, and its probably something that you've tried, but would burritoing work ?

    I place a towel on the couch, grab the bun, place them in the middle and then really tightly wrap them up. then half the time i end up pressing my face against the bunnies so they can't move their head and in it goes.

    it then means you don't get scratched or peed on as all of bunny is inside the towel except the head. they do try to shove their head in though, so you need a tight grip at the back. i put snoopy laying on my lap as he's pretty placid and just lets me do it. luna i more have to stand on my lap to get her to have anything lol.

    ive expected you've already tried but i didn't think of this until my friend said something.

    Hi binky. Thankyou,we have tried the burrito technique but my speedy furballs kept reversing out of them before I could wrap them securely. But I will give it another go. They just don't like sitting still at all. If only they understood I was trying to help.

    Do you have a firm grip? I have a no nonsense grip having worked with hundreds of Rescue Rabbits - firm but fair and they give up trying to get away

    Think I need to practise that! I'm probably not firm enough

    It's usually the case. Confidence is the key. Don't let them think they can get away, and don't lose your own concentration for a second, or they will definitely be outta there
