How do I know if my rabbit has worms?


Answer by  alison123 (85)

Look at their droppings to see signs of worms. Rabbit fluke will transmit to humans and you may not see the flukes. If the rabbit is not thriving,looking skinny or eating so much it may have worms. If suspected worms dose with wormer.

You should be able to see them in his feces. He may also drag his rear end on the ground or excessively groom the area. Loss of weight and coat condition are also symptoms. Take him to a vet for an accurate diagnosis. Worms are very simple to treat.

Pinworms are the most common worms in rabbits. The are small and white. You have to look at the rabbits anus and also at his poo to see if you see any. You should take rabbit to the vet.

A bloated or distended belly is a sure way to tell if your rabbit has worms. You can administer wormer yourself. All you need to do is go to your local feed store and ask which wormer they recommend to give your rabbit.

If you think it is behaving weird, take it to the vet. Don't take any risks yourself unless you've got previous experience in this.

He will probably have worms in his feces. He will most likely stop eating and become really skinny. Get him to a vet if you think he's got worms.

it's not always easy to tell if your rabbit is infested as often there aren't any outward signs of ill health. Symptoms can include loss of condition, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Our house rabbit gets very hoppy when pinworms are present. It's probably an uncomfrotable internal sensation.
