Medicinal treatment of
In the case of a cold, it is sufficient simply to improve the nutrition of an animal. In addition, it is desirable to wash the outer surface of the nostrils with a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide, and the interior - to treat Vaseline. If in a rabbit there are white nozzles, it is necessary to immerse 5-6 drops of a solution of Acmonovocillin in boiled water in a ratio of 1: 2 in the nose.

As a rule, doctors use the following drugs:
Antibiotics are administered to an animal for 5-7 days, regardless of symptoms. If their disappearance interrupts the administration of drugs, the body will develop immunity to antibiotics, and re-treatment will be ineffective.

Do not overdo inhalation with sage, eucalyptus, fennel, mint or their essential oils. Concentration of a substance can be very easily checked: if the vapor enters your nose and the eyes do not cause irritation, then this dosage will be suitable for rabbits.
To inhale an animal, place it in a small cage or transfer. Put a container with water and a small food tray so that the rabbit is distracted by pleasant treatments and was not in a state of stress. Place the inhaler container around the cell in such a way that the rabbit can not reach it. Cover the container and the cell with a sheet to ensure that the vapor enters the rabbit. The most important thing is to leave the animal in a big gap for air. In case of severe cold, inhalation is used up to 3 times a day.
