Please check your rabbits frequently during this hot weather.

Fly strike (Myiasis) is often caused by the green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata) and related fly species laying eggs on rabbits in hot weather. The green bottle flies are attracted to damp fur and the odour of rabbit scent glands. They lay their eggs on or around the rabbit's rear. They hatch within hours into maggots that eat the rabbit's flesh as well as releasing dangerous toxins.

Especially, during the summer months, fly strike in domestic rabbits is a serious problem. If you notice any symptoms, please contact us straight away.
