In most cases, treatment won’t be given unless the worms have made your bunny sick. The treatment provided in this case is anti-parasitic injections or medications, which your local vet can prescribe. A worm diagnosis is often confirmed through a faeces test by your vet and it’s super important to decontaminate your bunny’s living and grazing areas!
