This 30 minute eCPD tutorial will discuss flystrike, which is serious health concern with pet rabbits. There are many underlying reasons for rabbits to become affected by flystrike, but the condition can also befall rabbits who don’t fall into any of these high risk categories.
It is imperative that owners, who suspect their rabbits are suffering with flystrike, consult a veterinary surgeon immediately. Time is of the essence with these rabbits and the sooner the condition is treated the greater the chances of recovery. As nurses we should also be advising owners how they can prevent the condition in their rabbits.
