    My rabbit seems perfectly heathly but I keep reading about deworming programs . Is this really necessary?

    I don't de-worm, and no other rabbit breeders I know do. But mine are up in wire cages off the ground so that probably helps.

    I don't deworm any animal unless they seem wormy.

    A friend of mine has been in the rabbit business for many years, she shows and also for meat. She worms her breeding stock every year as a precaution. Also, she has had a lot better luck than me at breeding, I got a doe from her and to this day has not given me a litter, yet had nice large litters for her. So, thinking about getting what she uses and give her a dose, see if it helps.
