    When Tethra first had it, he was living with 3 others of his family. Stupidly, it never occurred to me whether it would be contagious and my vet didn't mention it. I am pretty sure that it will be contagious, when it's active, but no other rabbit was infected. So no, the other bunnies were not treated. I would discuss it with your vet. It is possible that he had one recurrence, a few years later, but my vet was not quite so confident of the diagnosis, although we treated it with Penicillin injections and he improved. He is left with a small scar where the lesions were.

    Thank you Omi. I will discuss it with Sheryl.

    9.15 tomorrow is the first penicillin injection, although he is just going for an injection and then home again I am taking Susan with us. OH is at work so I will have a big breakfast as lifting these two in a carrier takes some muscles.

    Haha at the big breakfast I know what you mean though as I struggle with Tui and Tethra. What you have to carry is like Tui x 2

    I hope his injection goes well tomorrow. How often will he have them? Will you do the next ones at home?

    The injections will be weekly, today I give the injection at the vets so they can make sure I know what I am doing. its over 20 years since I last did an injection.

    Not really, I saw a different vet. I knew I was doing as the drug had arrived and Sheryl wasnt on duty. I wanted Dilly to have it asap so just booked the first appointment available. The vet just did the injection, it was drawn up before we entered the room and so couldnt then teach me as it was done. My next 2 appointments are booked with Sheryls husband and I have a Sheryl in between - I have so much confidence in her that I almost dont trust anyone else with him.

    We had a little spark of Dilly back last night. I came in late with 3 bags of shopping. It was pouring down so I dumped them in the dining room and went back out to sort the car. Coming back into the house I was pleased to see all my shopping all over the dining room floor and Dilly sat in the shopping bag eating a turnip.

    You can see the syphilis under his chin on this one, its wet and hanging down underneath. I hope to see a difference in it now he has had his penicillin.

    Naughtiness can sometimes be so welcome

    Tethra was able to have a more concentrated dose of Penicillin (every other day to start with). It may be that it will take more than one dose to show any effect on the Syphilis, but at least the one dose should prevent it deteriorating. I'm sorry that you didn't get to practice the injections. My guess is that having done it before, no matter how long ago, you'll soon feel confident in giving them again.
