  • Please Note - Medical Advice

    Please keep in mind that posts on this forum are from members of the public sharing personal opinions. It is not a replacement for qualified medical advice from a veterinarian. Many illnesses share similar symptoms but require different treatments. A medical exam is necessary for an accurate diagnosis, without which appropriate treatment cannot be given.

    You should always consult your vet before following any suggestions for medication or treatment you have read about. The wrong treatment could make your rabbit worse or mean your vet is unable to give the correct treatment because of drug interactions. Even non prescription drugs can do harm if given inappropriately.

    We are very grateful to members who take time to answer other members questions, but please do be clear in your replies that you are sharing personal experience and not giving instructions on what must be done.

    Urgent Medical Advice: If you need, or think you might need, urgent medical advice you should contact a vet. If it is out of working hours phone your vet's normal number and there should be an answer phone message with instructions on what to do.

Video Showing Both Classic and Chronic Myxomatosis

Thanks for posting. I just clicked the link for the flystrike one too :( Marion didn't look anything near as bad as that when she got it, thank goodness
The 3rd bun looked like Biccy. :(

I however, do NOT agree with the comment made by the narrator.

And i quote "treatment is POINTLESS" and "the animal WILL die within 2 weeks of contracting the illness"

That's so unfair, surely it should be treated on a per-case basis, with the vet and owner doing what is best by the bun? I know as an owner, i wouldn't simply PTS as that video advised, i would look at the situation and work through it and take a relevant course of action.

That said, thank you for sharing what should be looked out for Jane :)
