    I've been so busy and tired with work, manager's on holiday so I'm in charge whilst he's away for 10 days. I've not had a day off in 10 days now and its really catching up on me can't wait till Friday so I can relax!

    Anyway just an update on everyone. Daisy is getting better, still having the panacur but she's looking much better and isn't doing the head thing anymore. She's being very good with taking it but Rosie on the other hand is a little cow about taking medicine and it takes two of us to get it into her everyday. Dylan was a very good boy to start with but now he's a little git with taking the panacur and tries to avoid it. George and Ember are taking it well and not making much fuss. I can't wait till its all done and Daisy is completely better, its a nightmare having to give medicine to five rabbits everyday.

    Funny thing happened last night as well, I went to a rabbit talk at a local vets that specialise in rabbits. Was part of the rabbit awareness week thingy. I ended up doing most of the talking as the vet running it knew nothing. For a start he advises against worming rabbits and myxi only needs to be given in April every year not every 6 months! One lady there was telling us about her rabbit and how he suddenly falls over, she'd taken him to the vet and paid loads of money on tests with the thought that he was epileptic. I asked her what the rabbit actually does and she described to me the basic bunny flop they do when happy. I told her this and the vet there said he'd never heard of it before. I think that vet learnt a lot last night.

    Glad to hear that Daisy is getting better, and that you are coming to the end of the treatments :)
    I had Monday off of work, and I dont have any days off for the foreseable future! So I know what its like :)
    lol, school holidays are so fun, lmao.

    I cant believe that vet was doing a talk on rabbits and had no clue about them! Good job you went really!

    Ah hope you get a good rest over the weekend!

    Glad to hear Daisy is getting better. Have you tried putting the panacur on a treat rather then syringing it into them? We do this for Alan cos he doesn't sit still for long and he muches them no problem. Lottie won't eat them with it on though but she's easier to syringe into luckily!

    He did say he's never owned a rabbit actually, which I found quite funny. :p

    I'm working again tomorrow so no real weekend for me. :(

    I've tried treats and all sorts to give it to them but they can smell it and just turn their nose up at it. Syringing is easier so I know its all gone in them.

    my 2 didnt have a problem taking it off food I was quiet surprised. I got a little spring greens or kale squirted it on and then rolled the bit of leaf up, before they knew it they'd eaten it all.

    Alan eats treats with it on no problem thank goodness as he'd be a devil to syringe into.

    Lottie can smell it a mile off though and won't touch anything with it on no matter how I try to disguise it! Funny how they are both totally different!
