    I just now noticed this in New Posts. It didn't tag me for some reason with an alert. If it had, I wouldn't have been anymore help than the other gals that answered ya. I tried once a few years back to establish a Vet after coming out of hiatus from raising in the 80's and 90's and starting back up around 2015. The only ones I found considered rabbits exotics and specialty animals rather than agricultural or common pets. We couldn't afford veterinarian care as a kid on our house cat, ned alone a bunch of meat rabbits. Unfortunately it still holds true. I can't purchase a registered $25-50 rabbit and spend the type of $ they charge at the vet's office. We treat and medicate the best we can with what we can purchase. It keeps getting restricted more and more. At times favorite breeders have to be put down, and it's not easy. I keep telling myself I have given the animal the best life or as good as it would have received at any other rabbitry.

    It's hard when there's really no vets who treat rabbits...
    The vet I work for doesn't, but they'll help me out with some things in the rabbitry.
    There's a little clinic that sees all animals and it's helpful but they're only open 2 days a week :idunno

    That's fantastic! Because we all know that animals happily wait 5 days to die!:th

    My vet, before we moved, once told me how much penicillin to use on a rabbit based on weight and what she would use on a cat. That was helpful. I already had the refrigerated bottle from one of the ag/outdoor stores. It did the trick back then for a doe with mastitis. I also had help from a friend that was a rabbit show judge and during the day was a vet tech. That helped a lot too. :)
