    I don't know as I haven't had any pain relief for mine at home since 2016, but I will try and remember to ask what that's about when Chibbs gets her vaccs next month. I have been intrigued by the upsurge in mentions of it on here
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    I've not heard of this either through work or different practices I've visited for rabbits

    It seems to be becoming much more common. In dogs too, apparently.

    Interesting... am wondering for guinea pigs! The concern with it in humans is the liver, I think?
