How to dose a rabbit

While Anna & I are away, it's been up to Bob to dose poorly Benjamin Bunny with his parasite zapping medicine.

Having seen our battle scars, he decided to try something different to the towel wrapping & syringing.

Benj loves Brussels Sprouts so Bob carefully separated the leaves of some for him, and put the medicine in them & gave them to him for his breakfast. He wolfed them down.

The medicine is quite runny so Bob then wiped up the excess with broccoli florets & hand fed them to him.

This worked for today. It may not work tomorrow but it's a tactic which might help if you have a bunny who doesn't like taking his medicine.

There's a huge improvement in Benj since Monday. His head is still tilting but he's a much happier boy. Fingers crossed this works.
