    Refrigerating PenG Procaine

    This is the safe antibiotic list from medirabbit. Your 2.4 lb rabbit is about 1 kg (2.2lbs) There is a range of dosage in units. If you locate bicillin you will see the range is 47,000-84,000 u per kg. I usually dose somewhere in the middle. If you have a rabbit savvy vet it may be wiser to...

    Flooring for older bun with spinal disc issues

    Thanks Jenny, she is not yet paralyzed and most of the time can keep her balance and move around if the flooring of the xpen is kept very flat. Last night she had an episode of not being able to get her hind legs under her and when attempting to get up just goes in a circle. I gave her extra...

    Flooring for older bun with spinal disc issues

    Thanks for the suggestion! Yesterday Jim and I spent the entire afternoon in Home Depot and Menards looking at mats, carpets, etc. I had not yet seen the reply so I ended up buying several floor mats with rubber backing and short minimal carpet fiber on front. Last evening , for whatever reason...

    Overgrown Incisors, please help!

    If the upper and lower jaw is not aligned in the rabbit's mouth then the teeth are not able to grind together in a normal manner ;this is usually a genetic issue. If the problem is only the incisors then they could be removed ( plus peg teeth behind them ) . Rabbits can pick up food without...

    Can someone help!

    I agree with above posts. If there is a change in his breathing from normal then he should go to a rabbit knowledgeable vet. You also mentioned half open pinkish rimmed eye which also needs to be seen ..could be conjunctivitis. I had a mini-lop years ago who had a respiratory problem that began...

    Beginning sore hocks

    Well both these posts helped me a lot so "thank you" to both of you :) I had been reading about bandaging hocks and it looked difficult to do. Thomas is very difficult to handle and the thought of needing to bandage anything on him would seem close to impossible. Aki, when you used the cortisone...
