    Hey folks,
    What all should I put in my rabbits 1st aid kit? Anything that you think is required?

    I have had to inject penicillin for mastitis, so that and the fill needles, although the Feds made it pretty hard to get your own meds now, so check with other farmers around or local co-op. I like Vetrimycin too for cuts or sores. Doesn't hurt if licked or gets in eyes. I may think of more. Others on here too that might have ideas.
    Edit: Thought of something else. I use rolled or steel cut oats for diarrhea. Keep it on hand, but hardly ever use it.

    I have durapen, needles, and syringes, cornstarch for torn nails, corid and fenbendazole for parasites. A mix of water, vinegar and nolvasan in a spray bottle for any sneezing bunnies. I use panalogue for cuts, wounds.

    I have had to quarantine on the other side of my shed. The halves are divided by a tarp. Best I could do at the time.
