We’re back from the vet. Bunny body language indicate that the boys aren’t pleased at being hauled to the clinic so close to dinner time:
We’ve decided to try a different antibiotic for Hans’ abscess, one from the penicillin group. Our vet is helping us source for this drug.. I really hope it’s available here.
Penicillin supposedly wreaks havoc on rabbits’ normal gut flora, more so if it is given orally. If we manage to find the drug for Hans, it will be administered by subcutaneous injections and hopefully there will be less upset to his gut. If anyone reading this has had their rabbit treated with penicillin before, I would really appreciate it if you could share your experience with me, particularly on how the penicillin was administered and how your rabbit reacted to it. Many thanks in advance 😀
Meanwhile, Hans will be on oral Baytril for a week, to prevent any further flare-ups of the abscess.
