Rabbit #2 still has the rasp, we just took the Hay out and replaced it with a towel. I gave him a penicillin shot this morning, followed by some Rabbit-Mycin nose drops. and some Vet Rx outside each nostril. A friend just came over, one who actually raised rabbits as a youngster, held the rabbit and said what I suspected, the rasp is not reverberating from his chest, but from his throat. The rabbit has a SLIGHT clear discharge from his nose, no matted paws, he eats normally, humps your hand when you tend to him, and is drinking and feisty. He is not running a fever. So do I keep on going like I am? When brought in the house for observation-he was fine.. but there is also no hay in the house. These symptoms did not actually manifest till the cold weather set in, and we gave them all Hay bedding.. we also brought in alot of hay and stored it in the barn for the other animals. I am of the opinion it's the hay.. since he doesnt get any worse. How do I go about keeping the rabbit from the symptoms? House him elsewhere? Also... how often can penicillin be given, and in what amount do you recommend for a rabbit of 7 lbs or so? Thanks all.. Zin Who really needs a rabbit vet in these parts.
