Oh I am so sorry. Ivermectin should be given as an injection, but I would get the vet to at least show you in person how to do it. My baby had rabbit syphyllis (i know u r laughing) and I had to give her penicillin injections. My husband held her around her head with a towel covering her head. Then in the back behind her ears, I did the injections. I agree www.rabbit.org is a great website. I use it all the time too. Good luck!

I'm not sure how to give the meds, but I know a site that is full of info. I have a house rabbit and I always go to www.rabbit.org when i have a question. They also have e-mail addresses in order to contact people that can help. I think that there might be a hotline number too. Do you have a rabbit-savvy vet? If you do, maybe they can show you or even tell you over the phone. Good luck and let me know if it helped. This is my baby..
