Last year we used rabbit tractors, and sadly, lost a bunch of bunnies. We wormed them, I treated them for GI Stasis...we took five to the vet...most of those died. All she said to do was keep deworming. We use Albon. Chris and I are on full lockdown with the bunnies now! I now have really expanded my rabbits, and we have 7 breeds. We have a lot of rabbits. They lovvved the tractors. But we do NOT want to lose one bunny!! I just read the other thread, one second ago, and the6 are losing kits, PA said to use corid....was THAT it all this darned time? If so, I could wring my vet’s neck?! If that’s it.....what about bunnies you sell? Do they need corid water?

Corid(aka Amprol)
Corid is a coccidiastat.

Treats: parasitic eradication for Coccidiosis (aka Coccidia)

Dose 1: prevent: mix 1teaspoon per gallon water; give as drinking water – 5 days on / 5 off / 5 on

Dose 2: treat: mix as directed above, give for 21 consecutive days

Albon is good too generally. I do preventative doses spring and fall, and any weaned kits.

@Duckfarmerpa1 please read the thread I posted about RHVD you may rethink letting rabbits on the ground. :confused:

Yeah, I read that thread...it freaked me out!! I’m trying what to put on my fb page for all the people who bought bunnies....should I tell these people about THAT? It will surely cause a panic!! I told everyone to limit ground time, only on very dry days, etc..,must deworm! I’m going back on tonight...and I have everyone who bought a bunny in my contact list, to call. I’ve asked other breeders...out here, just one last night..most don’t even deworm...they don’t put them on the ground at all. I want the best of ALL the worlds! I want happy bunnies, that I happen to breed...that are very healthy! I’m REALLY enjoying learning about the genes, even though it’s very hard to comprehend? But, it will break my heart if I put all this work into all these bunnies, like last year...but times three...and lose so many..again! We are definitely not putting them on the ground..but I need to know what to tell my happy buyers..without freaking them out! And, making them feel like I betrayed them by saying a little yard fun would be ok.... Plus, I was talking with the other breeder last night..he and I both, noticed, that, around 4-6 weeks...a bunch of kits...unrelated..but by same hutches, would come up with sloshey tummies...gel bumm... He never put them on the ground. I blame it on the ground. Any ideas?
