Rabbit got the parasite at the age of 9
- Name: Coos
- Location: Netherlands
Hello from Holland,
Our rabbit is a so-called fox-rabbit, who have an approximate expected lifetime of 6-7 years tops. The veterinarians always tell you to have the rabbit vaccinated every year to avoid the "standard" parasite e.culiculi, although it regularly happens that those who did get the shot, will get the parasite anyway.
Our rabbit never had the vaccine, and got the parasite at the age of 9 (nine!) and was treated with antibiotics by the vet. It all went fine until he started vomiting a while later. Several vets told us that it was impossible for a rabbit to vomit, however a few people had witnessed this repeatedly. The treating vet told us there was nothing she could do, and that we should be very pleased for the rabbit to have lived that long.
At home I started giving him MMS according to his weight, 3 times a day. Within 24 HOURS he was back on his feet and energetic as in his younger years! This happened 6 months ago, and he is still alive and kicking as we speak!
Many warm greetings,
