Flystrike is about the most cruel thing for rabbit to be affected by and I must stress this product should be the very last line of defence against it. In the past I managed a busy rabbit rescue centre for over a decade and I remain a rabbit owner. I have never had a case of fly strike (except the ones bought in to the centre who had already been fly struck) because it is preventable. Good rabbit care should prevent your rabbit from becoming a victim and that means picking them up for regular checks, good diet and clean accommodation. Bottom line (excuse the pun) is that flies are not interested in clean, dry, fur on healthy rabbits living in spacious, well ventilated housing with fresh clean bedding. Flies are attracted to dirt, smell and excrement. So, if your rabbit has a dirty bottom, this is not normal and needs investigating. Nor is your rabbit 'lazy' or 'not bothering' to clean themselves as I have heard people say in the past. Rabbits are fastidiously clean animals, so not cleaning themselves requires attention.

Healthy rabbit poos come in 2 varieties. The first is crumbly hay filled sphere shaped droppings. The second are shiny sticky droppings bunched like tiny grapes. These are caecotrophs, which are the parts of the dropping normally reingested, eaten straight from their bottom. Ick, I know, but this a normal and healthy process for rabbits (and lots of other herbivores) called Copography. You would not usually see these poos. If these are not being ingested and are collecting around the anus causing a dirty bottom then one of 2 things is likely to be happening:
1) Too many caecotrophs are being produced. This usually happens when a rabbit is fed incorrectly and their gut bacteria is adversely affected by too much carbohydrate in the diet.

We zap this on to our rabbit from the Spring onwards since having one attack of fly strike. This product has worked wonders. Always continue to check animals rear & tail area though. We delighted

The product was a lot cheaper than purchasing through my local vet. In fact the nurse at the vets suggested I purchase it online. Worked out quite a bit cheaper

Fantastic product to help prevent fly strike in rabbits. Find the product is cheaper than purchasing from the vets. Easy application although I find it easier to release liquid into a dish and apply with the sponge attached from there; this (from experience) makes it slightly less stressful for the rabbit.

Fly Strike is about the worst thing that can befall a rabbit. It is a very painful, slow death.
This product is recommended by all vets. The cheaper versions just don`t adequately protect.
A fly can find a tiny bit of bunny poo at the rear of the rabbit..an area he/she can`t reach. The fly then lays its eggs.
When the maggots hatch for the first few hours there may be just six to a dozen but within a few days there are hundreds. Not just eating your pet externally but inside the rabbit, eating its internal organs. One botle should give two aplications unless the rabbit is very large. Either way..if you love your rabbity use this every three months during the late spring through to early autumn. If Fly strike is not detected within a day it may be too late. A terrible way for a loved pet to die.
I don`t have shares in the company. I do have 18 pet bunnies. I am not a breeder. I lost one very loved young rabbit through Fly Strike...To be avoided at all costs.
