We've never wormed ours but I have used ivermectin to combat ear mites. I wasn't as careful about overdosing as I should have been (goats are so tolerant to that drug) and I lost quite a few rabbits and made some of the others quite sick. If I use ivermectin again I'll be more careful. When my husband raised rabbits years ago he often needed to treat for coccidia. He used Sulmet(sulfadimethoxine) in their drinking water for a week. But I've never seen any indication to do that with the rabbits we have now. We only keep about 16 rabbits, all Californians from good show and production stock. We showed briefly but since we show our goats extensively we decided that showing to different breeds of animals was too hard. We keep the rabbits for our own use and occasionally sell breeding stock.
