    I've got her back. They wanted me to inject penicillin but I'm away from tomorrow and couldn't get hold of my bunny lady so got oral antibiotics now. She's also on her normal ranitidine metaclopramide and metacam. She's munching on hay now. Not interested in her muesli at the moment

    Glad to hear that she's home and munching on hay already. I hope that the antibiotics get on top of her infection ASAP xx

    So glad she's home, you must be very relieved. Especially as you're going to be away from home!

    Vibes for her to get totally better

    For future reference is injecting easy with a wiggly rabbit? I'm guessing it's a more effective way to clear an infection by penicillin and injecting

    Sorry to have missed this. Sending vibes that Doughnut clears this infection quickly and is back to normal soon. What kind of hay does she eat? Sometimes a coarser hay, as long as the gut tolerates it well, is the way forward in preventing spurs.
    Injections can be much more effective in treating infections, but I was never able to do them myself. (Needle squeamish) And if bunny is uncooperative it might take more than one carer or a vet nurse to get them done.

    Whether Penicillin injections are more effective than oral abx depends on the precise bacteria involved. Generally speaking abx given by subcutaneous injection achieve better blood plasma levels than oral abx. But no abx will be of benefit if the precise bacteria involved in causing the infection are resistant to the abx being given. If you see what I mean !!

    This video shows various injection techniques, Penicillin is given subcutaneously

    You may need someone to hold Doughnut whilst you give the injection if she's very wriggly. Or if you have a top opening Pet Carrier you could attempt to do the injection whilst Doughnut was in the carrier.

    Well I've put critical care down and she's eating that. Hasn't eaten all her muesli and nibbling on hay too. Haven't heard her sneeze once since she's come back which is odd. It couldn't have gone already only given her one lot! I won't complain though
    I have to be careful with her hay. I got a big bag of Timothy hay from the hay experts. She loved it but her digestion problems came back and her acid reflux. I quick with the same two now Timothy hay from wilko. Doesn't look or smell great but her tummy likes it and the natures own with rose petals in

    Thanks for the video. Putting her in the carrier is a great idea. Think I would struggle on my own. She doesn't just sit still unfortunately
