I have recently noticed worms in my rabbits poop, I haven't seen very many. I was sitting with him and when he moved I saw he pooped but there was a small white worm on his poop. I am wondering what the best medication to use for worms is. I don't want it to get worse but I am worried about giving him the wrong meds.

If it's pinworms the recommended treatment is fenbendazole 20mg/kg one dose, then a second dose 10-14 days later. But I would give for 5 days(one dose per day), 10 days off, then one more dose, based on the difficulty of clearing up pinworms. I use the safeguard liquid goat dewormer, NOT the paste. If you aren't familiar or comfortable calculating doses and giving dewormer, I would suggest taking your bun to an experienced rabbit vet.
