Parasites live on or in our pets, and sometimes us, and can cause a range of signs. From ectoparasites, who live on the skin, to endoparasites, who live inside our pets, parasites are found inhabiting all our pet species and are a frequent reason for our pets to end up visiting their local vet! To find out more about the parasites your pet could be at risk from, and how you can protect them, follow our handy links below.
E. Cuniculi And Your Rabbit
E. cuniculi is a microscopic brain and kidney parasite. While many rabbits can carry the parasite and show no signs, others can develop deadly disease.
Coccidiosis And Your Rabbit
Coccidiosis is caused by a single-celled parasite, or protozoa, called Eimeria. While some rabbits can carry the parasite and show no signs, others can develop deadly disease.
Worms And Your Rabbit
While worms are much less common in rabbits than in our cats and dogs, they can still pick them up. Knowing the signs to look out for can help you make sure your bunny gets treatment quickly, and stays happy and healthy, even if they do come across any of these parasites.
