How do you treat rabbits that have worms?

My pet rabbits have worms and I would like to know what is the best way to treat them.

There are over the counter wormers such as PinEx that are quite effective on some worms, however there are many different intestinal parasites and you may need to take a trip to the vet for advice on which specific intestinal parasite your bunny has and the best course of action.

Be sure to contact your veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment of internal or external parasites. Those who are experienced my administer an ivermectin product for treatment.

As always, the best and safest way to treat your rabbit is with a trip to the vet. Your vet can give your rabbit a dewormer orally or by injection. Don't forget to take a fecal sample from your rabbit with you for the vet's examination to be sure it is worms.
