Antibiotics

 

With humans you must be very careful to not overuse antibiotics, rabbits are no different. Antibiotics should only be used when a veterinarian prescribes them. Obviously rabbits eat a large amount of plant matter which means they require bacteria within them to break it down. Without this bacteria serious digestive problems can occur in your rabbit. Antibiotics which are taken orally by rabbits have a tendency to kill the beneficial bacteria.

Never give your rabbit antibiotics which have been prescribed for humans. These can be far to strong for a rabbit to handle and can even be fatal. The only time you should give your rabbit antibiotics is after you have taken it to the vet and he or she gave you directions to do so.
