Protecting your rabbit against worms is as much a part of good pet care as diet and vaccinations. Pet rabbits can get worms (usually if fed on green food collected from areas frequented by wild rabbits) but clinical problems are supposed to be rare. A small proportion of rabbits occasionally develop signs associated with a protozoal infection with Encephalitozoon cuniculi.
Treatment with fenbendazole (Panacur) 2-4 times yearly is recommended as an aid in the control of intestinal worms in domestic rabbits.
