Rabbit advice needed

We're about to become the proud owner of two rabbits, I'm looking for advice on a good carrier to transport two mini lops for vet trips (20min car ride), and also as they will be living in our garden the best products to prevent fly strike.

For Flystrike you need RearGuard - one bottle will do both animals. You need to put it on the back half of their body and up their tail see here.

For a carrier I would suggest either one that is top-opening or one with pegs to hold the two halves together. My last one has clips that slide down and I don't entirely trust it.

As well as the combined Myxi and RVHD jabs you'll also need the new RVHD2 jab for them - not all vets know about this so do ask.

No problem. I assume you'll be posting pictures of your slavemasters when they arrive??? (stern look)

Get into the habit of checking their bottoms daily for any sign of flystrike. Good luck with your new bunnies! As PP said make sure they have their jabs. I also use panacur to protect against e cuniculi.
