    It shouldn't be an issue if your other Rabbit were to ingest a tiny amount that Marnie may have dribbled from her mouth. Are they actually bonded ? I only ask as if you are only just introducing them maybe it'd be best to wait til Marnie's treatment is finished. As she's on an abx I am assuming she has some sort of bacterial infection. Bonding is a stressful process and stress can have a negative impact on a Rabbit's immune system.

    I expect you already know all that though, but I thought I'd better mention it just incase xx

    Hi Ross

    A bit of trimethoprim sulpha would be OK if ingested in the quantity you mention

    yeah I was thinking about that to be honest, but there getting sad when there not together, and we are going away next month so we wanted done with as much time as we can before then to make sure it goes all smoothly, she doesn't seem to be stressed by the sneezing, more by missing Declan, so I don't really want to wait another month because Declan especially seems lonely now bless him, so I'm thinking maybe I should just let them bond and move in? thank you both Jacks Jane and max

    You're welcome

    Remember, a bunny stressed by not being together with the partner they want to be with is going to have a reduced immune response. What I mean is, if bonding and being together reduces stress, then it's a good thing and will promote quicker healing

    You are in the best position to judge what is the right course of action for your Rabbits. IME there is seldom a one size fits all approach for anything Rabbity !!
