    Got an appointment for him for this Monday.

    He is losing weight, and getting weaker.

    I'm going to ask about other drug options. I've read that corticosteroids help some of these bunnies that are nearing their end of life. I'll see what she has to say about that. He is definitely not better today, than when he started the baytril and panacur.

    Is he currently on a daily non steroidal anti-inflammatory eg Meloxicam aswell as the Panacur and Baytril ? If not I would want to try that first, before risking a corticosteroid.

    In certain specific circumstances I have had terminally ill Rabbits who were prescribed a Corticosteroid as part of their palliative care. They all benefitted from the treatment, it bought them all some additional good quality time. They were also prescribed Ranitidine alongside the corticosteroid to protect their GI tracts from ulceration, one of the possible side effects of corticosteroids.

    Whilst the use of a corticosteroid in Rabbits is not usually recommended, there are certain circumstances where-by the Vet may feel that it is appropriate, taking into account all the possible negative effects.

    NB- If you think your Rabbit is unwell it is essential to seek immediate veterinary attention.

    Yes, he is on the highest dosage of meloxicam. He gets it twice a day. That stuff gets very expensive when you have to give it at high dosages. It clearly helps, but its no longer enough.

    You can get a prescription from the vet (they charge for that) and buy it online which makes it far cheaper
