Rabbit breeders reviews
Vladimir, Samara: Unfortunately, I have a bitter experience in dealing with coccidosis. Once, out of it, I lost a whole population of rabbits. Now I focus on prevention. I do not wait until the young are ill, but I give solikox to the rabbit immediately after weaning from the rabbit. I drip each 0.2 ml on the first day with a pipette. It seems to me that this way of watering is better than diluting with water. The next day, as written in the instructions, I give 0.3 ml already, and on the third day - 0.4. Now I forgot what coccidosis is! Very long distance and I advise everyone.
Sergey, Pskov: I have been buying Solidoks for rabbits for several years in a row, and he never failed me. It is very convenient to use - I type in a syringe without a needle and solder each animal separately. They are healthy and active rabbits!

I thought it was easy to keep rabbits, but it turned out that they were very tender and vulnerable. They require careful care and appropriate conditions. Special shooting should be given to the health of rabbits. I understood this when my animals became sick and I was just in despair. I turned to the vet, he advised the drug solikoks. Give it according to the scheme, as it should be. Very good medicine!
