Please be aware that this medicine can only be supplied for a maximum of one year treatment per animal.
For the prevention of blowfly strike (Lucilia sericata) in domestic rabbits for 10 weeks after dosing.
Rearguard comes supplied ready-to-use in a bottle with built-in applicator sponge.
Rabbits should be treated at 8-10 week intervals under conditions of repeated blowfly challenge.
Rearguard does not repel flies but it will prevent any maggots from forming and damaging the animal.
If the rabbit is continually attractive to flies, this may be due to an underlying disease e.g. diarrhoea or incontinence, or a lack of hygiene within its housing. In such cases further advice should be sought from your veterinary surgeon.
