Do vets prescribe ponazuril for rabbits?

I found a prescription for Ponazuril in my sons room and am concerned that he may be abusing it.


Answer by  dantheman (14)

Ponazuril is a drug for killing protozoans in horses. However, it can be used in small animals against the internal parasite coccidia. If your son has a pet bunny that is showing symptoms of parasitic infection, it's not unlikely that the vet prescribed it.

Yes, ponazuril is prescribed for rabbits - often for treatment of coccidiosis and bacterial other infections. It is not known to have any narcotic effects or the like, so I wouldn't be concerned with abuse. Council your son not to take any medications unless they are prescribed specifically to him.

Yes they do, it's designed to kill intestinal parasites. I highly doubt your son would be abusing this drug due to the lack of euphoria.
