    I just got a rabbit last week at a sale barn. She has a runny nose. I haven't raised rabbits in 15 years so I can't remember what medication I should give her. Anybody know what is safe to give her? She doesn't seem that sick yet but I don't want her to come down with pneomia. Thanks for your help. Oh, and I was told she was bred and due in 2 weeks so I don't want to harm any babies she might be carrying.

    I hope you get some more help. [​IMG] I have never had this problem but to start with I would try VetRX.
