Does anyone know if it is ok to use Castor Oil on a breast lump and to give Tumeric internally to a rabbit for this condition? And how much tumeric to give internally.... I am assuming that you just rub the Castor Oil on the lump.
The vet found a lump close to our female rabbit's breast. She doesn't know if it's benign or cancer. Can we use remedies on her (rabbit) that are suggested here for dogs and cats???Please let me know your thoughts....
Thank you! Teresa
My dog bit a small part of a baby bunny's neck skin off. It needs a stich. One vet was too busy, another said 95$ plus we keep him. I wanted to bring him hack to his mother and the nest and keep my dog in and walk him in front for a while. Took him to bunny sanctuary where they gave us food to take home that looks like mud and gave him antibiotics orally and pain meds. I wanted to clean the wind wi th warm water and put coconut oil on it or something...but haven't. He seems healthy otherwise. Is in a cool place in the home but a warm box in a pocket of a cotton skirt. Was hoping humane society would stitch him and give back so we could return to his mom but they haven't called us back. Pls help.advise. Thanks so much. 248-342-9397
I have been researching wry neck in rabbits and have found sources stating a very low dose of ivomec administered biweekly will kill the spores of EC (encephalitazoon cuniculi) the protozoa that attacks the kidneys and results in the horrible symptoms of wry neck. I would like to find out if there are any known natural methods of eliminating and even preventing the parasite from becoming opportunistic and attacking the kidneys and brain?
Here is some info about our rabbits:
We feed ACV to our rabbits by means of adding 1/2 tsp to their bottle of water. The rabbit with wry neck was previously fed a diet of hay and pellet food, the other rabbit has been converted to a raw diet consisting of veggies, fruit, seeds and hay. Since the onset of the wry neck I have administered a low dose of ivomec- 1/10 cc per lb of weight- to each rabbit and fed grated carrot mixed with seaweed and ground dandelion root to aid immune function. I have also been feeding the unaffected rabbit small amounts of bee pollen, which he loves, but the effected rabbit will not eat these things. In my opinion, the effected rabbit is not be used to the diet that our older rabbit is, it took him about a month to completely convert his diet. I wish to stay away from feeding pellets to the effected rabbit because pelleted food can become contaminated and cause the wry neck problem. Hopefully this will not stress the effected rabbit in a way that will cause her immunity to become even more compromised. She has been eating the hay and baby greens and drinking allot of water, since the dose was administered (Dec 12/2013) they have become more lethargic than usual, which in my understanding is normal behavior for the next 24 hours.
So I hope there may be someone out there who has had some knowledge and understanding of this parasite and its effects. For the best source I found for information on this disease here is the link (if its not against the rules of EC) sorry if it is. Barbi has been researching this disease for over 25 years, although methods are not natural they seem to be the only alternative to the veterinarian so far. Also if anyone is wondering why we haven't taken the rabbit to the vet, it is because there are no rabbit vets in this area, most vets will not even touch the subject of small mammal care here and I know the cost of the tests necessary to diagnose EC parasites would be more than I could afford. As an example it cost us $900.00 to have our cat euthanized after a blood test.
