I'm taking an herbal class, and have been reading on all kinds of remedies, and came across some that sound promising. I have an old timey Russian rabbit health book. They used to keep the buns on solid floors, most oldtimers probably still do. I imagine, coccidia was a concern. The book says as a preventative, to run a 0.01% iodine solution through the drinking water of pregnant does and does with young litters. I can look up how exactly they prepare the solution, but they are talking about iodine powder, which probably means pure iodine, w/o any additives. Is there such thing to be found in the US? Also, I know Vanodine has drinking solution recommendations. I wonder, if this could be used instead. I'm usually completely anti-chemical of any kind. Have to read up on iodine, as right now to me it sounds harmless enough if done correctly. Also, if iodine kills bacteria, can it upset the rabbit's intestinal flora? Anybody here using Vanodine or knows if it's ok to use in rabbits' drinking water? The next one is a fact I've read in one of the herbal books, that lamb's quarters plant is a powerful anthelmintic for livestock. I wonder, if it wouldn't also be true for rabbits' worms. It is safe for the buns, right? Anyone feeding this to their rabbits?
