Angry Antibiotics To Avoid

The use of Gram-positive spectrum oral antibiotics can seriously alter the sensitive balance of bacterial flora in the cecum.

Remember antibiotics to be avoided by using the PLACE rule.

Penicillin
Lincomycin
Ampicillin, Amoxicillin
Cephalosporins, Clindamycin
Erythromycin

Penicillin can be used safely if certain precautions and actions afterward are taken (listen to your rabbit-knowledgeable vet), but since the antibiotic has been so overused, most bacteria are fairly resistant to it, anyway.

Penicillin can be used but only in injectable form

Baytril works for minors but from experience, baytril will NOT kill the bacteria ''walled'' off in an abscess. Baytril worked when Acacia had a healing cheek (abscess that was sloughed off and totally removed) but it never did justice on poor Akina's re-occurring abscesses.

Thanks for the knowledge of antibiotics. I think what Steve was penicillin & it was injected. He's a very healthy boy--has seen a vet only once; I must be feeding him right I know I should take him more, but there are none in my area that know two hoots about bunnies.
