Fly Strike in Domestic Rabbits!!!

Fly strike in rabbit

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RABBIT OWNERS

Fly strike in domestic rabbits is a common problem throughout the summer months. Fly strike (Myiasis) is predominantly caused by the green bottle fly  and related fly species which lay eggs on living rabbits. The green bottle flies are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces or the odour of rabbit scent glands. They lay their eggs on or around the rabbit’s rear end where they hatch within hours into maggots that eat into the rabbit’s flesh and releasing toxins in the process. If you find maggots on or around your rabbit’s bum immediate veterinary attention is required – the situation is and should be treated as an emergency. Rabbits that have fly strike will also often need antibiotics to prevent infection. Anti-inflammatory and pain killing drugs are sometimes also administered.

Fly strike is a distressing and potentially fatal condition which can be prevented by a few simple measures.

Remove all soiled bedding daily

  • Ensure that your rabbit is not being overfed, as this can result in diarrhoea, leading to a dirty bum
  • Feed greens and fruit in moderation, as some rabbits can not tolerate an over-abundance of green food again leading to diarrhoea and a dirty bum . For the same reason, take care when putting your rabbit out on the lawn in the summer, not to allow too much access to fresh grass
  • Check your rabbit twice daily to ensure that it is clean and dry. This includes house rabbits, who can also be at risk
  • Disinfect hutches every week.
  • Keep the rabbit dry and use a cleanser to remove faeces.
