    Hiya

    I once did a 28 day course of Panacur for my rabbits about a year ago. I was told by the vet that you won't need to worm them again unless you get a new rabbit. I forgot to ask what about boarding. My rabbits go to boarding every year so they obviously go into hutches that other rabbits have toileted in. Should I worm them again (28 day course) after they come back from boarding?

    a 28 day course is sufficient for life providing they have no contact with other rabbits, as the parasite can live in wood I would do them again as soon as you get them back from the boarders

    Personally I still worm for 28 days every 6 months or so as e.c is spread by urine spores so you could bring them in on your shoes or one of your guests could bring it in. It just isn't something I'm willing to risk tbh :eek:
