FIRST AID KIT
A rabbit is an active animal and can fall sick and get hurt. We will always recommend that you seek veterinary care but in the event you are unable to do so, such as if it happened late at night, it’s important to keep some first aid items handy to ease the situation. Many of the first aid items we keep in the wonderland are easy to obtain and today, we will like to share what we have in our first aid kit so you can be well-prepared to handle an emergency situation.
1. Rid Wind – Infant simethicone that is used to relieve minor gas symptoms.
2. Oxbow Critical Care – Concentrated fiber which can be fed to a rabbit that is not eating his normal diet.
3. Fiberplex – Probiotic as well as prebiotic concentrate to restore the balance of the digestive tract.
4. Appelin – Appetite stimulant to encourage an unwell rabbit to eat.
5. Corn Starch – Stop bleeding of nails and can also be used to dry-clean a messy bottom.
6. Silvadene Cream – Antibacterial topical cream that can be used to treat wounds and urine burns.
7. Vasaline – Topical ointment that can be used to calm down inflammed or dry skin.
8. Saline Solution – Sterile cleansing agent that can be used to flush out foreign matter from wounds or eyes (Tears Naturale recommended)
