Antibiotic ponderings----

had a carpal release surgery done this week, and was 'unfortuneate' enough to experience, firsthand, the results of antibiotics on the digestive system. No wonder why oral antibiotics can kill our rabbits--it has really taken a lot of real close attention to my water and food intake to match what I am losing through 'digestive upset' as a result of the changes in the gut flora...

I find I don't want to eat, or drink--- I wonder if the rabbits feel the same way?

The rabbits instincts do not have the data to deal with it.
Plus, living as they do in confinement, they don't have the opportunity to seek out wild plants to help them through!
but I believe she knew what was needed.
Absolutely! ;)
Yes! And probiotics for rabbits are great! You can give them plain yogurt or kefir (the kind you make at home with the real kefir grains). Raw milk is great for rabbits, too, and naturally has beneficial bacteria and enzymes.
