    This is what William gave me, said it was really good. He mentioned something about the person who makes it... But I can't remember what he said - bit fried been a tough few days hopefully it'll come back to me haha xx

    Yes, Mark at Trinity Vets also recommends Avipro

    You're absolutely right though, it's not always going to be the golden bullet for all problems.

    I'm sorry you're having a tough few days! I'm currently on the phone trying to get an urgent referral for an emergency with one of my rabbits. They don't half make us jump for them

    Do you ever notice that Atticus has very pronounced peristaltic movements as seen here

    Is it the ripple like movement you're referring to?

    I haven't noticed it although to be honest when he flops he's normally directly on his back with his feet up in the air in his dip in the hay he likes to make - or he's bunny loafed.

    Last night he threw him self down in a weird way almost like he'd collapsed but I didn't take note of his side I'll look in future - what does the ripple mean?

    The ripples are peristalsis -

    Peristaltic movement is the squeezing along of gut contents:
