which wormer?
Posted: 08/08/2009 by sammykins

I normally use Baeupher for reptiles on my tortoises and it seems to have worked. I just wondered as i was going to change to panacur as its easier to get hold of, i just thought which panacur wormer should i use is it Panacur for rabbits?

Hi
Have they definately got worms? I did read that it was better to get the poo examined for worms and then if they did have them then treat them, which makes sense? although maybe it is different if you lots of torts all together.. would be interested reading the thread that follows

yes they have, and i have quite a few to worm (from where i got them from they were overcrowded so all have them) i can see them, so i dont need to have the vets tell me that they have them, as i would be paying for common sense - lol.

I just wondered if the panacur for rabbits would be the right one to use? anyone know

Most people use the panacure for horses!!  Apparently the apple and cinnemon flavour is preferred.  I bought some online from equine suppliers, I havent used it yet, as I had to go to the vet for something else and the vet gave me 'drontal' which is for puppies, my vet preferred this to panacure.
