Our bunny has the snuffles for the second time in less than a month!

The vet has reissued the meds, and Bun has now been taking them for 24 hours.

He is not eating or drinking on his own, but we are giving him water through a dropper as well as Oxbow Critical Care pablum.

Oxbow Critical Care Apple/Banana Pet Supplement,

I’m not sure if I can give him natural compounds, such as grapefruit seed drops in his water, and what the ratio should be. The two cups are what I would put into a measuring cup to use over the day.

I’m also wondering about adding echinacea in his water as well, and if so, how much would be optimal. I am just wary of giving him these natural remedies’ while he’s taking the meds from the vet.

Clearly I am a newbie to owning bunnies.

Miranda currently lives just outside Colorado Springs, Colorado with her husband, 8-year old son, and what she lovingly calls her “zoo.” Miranda grew up in the Midwest and always had animals around while growing up. After graduating from college, she married her husband Sam and they moved to the mountains of Colorado where Miranda became very involved with the regional rabbit rescues.

Currently, her “zoo” includes two dogs, one rambunctious cat, and three indoor rabbits. Oliver, a delightful Black Otter Holland Lop, and Juniper, a gorgeous Opal Satin Angora, are a bonded pair and have been together for three years.

She had the pleasure of adding an energetic Fawn Flemish Giant to her family one year ago, named Sir Gregor. He had been abandoned outside a pet store and was put up for adoption. Miranda feels very blessed to have this lovable lagomorph living amongst her family and is a strong advocate for educating people about rabbits and how special they truly are.

Miranda has put together a team of rabbit lovers and breeders from across the country and hopes you will find the information and resources on the JustRabbits.com site beneficial. She loves to hear from her readers and looks forward to seeing many more people become loving responsible bunny parents.
