Hello all,

We are on day 6 of rehabbing a bunny bitten by a cat. She seems old enough to be off milk, since she eats on her own and wont take milk. She has been on 5mg Cipro for the last 5 days, no diarrhea yet X . Is it safe to take her off the Cipro yet? She seems to be doing pretty well.

Also, any suggestions on how long to keep her before release and what to do on release for a new England cotton tail would be very much appreciated.

Cipro is the same family of meds as Baytril. in the Wild Baby mammals book, for Baytril, it says "for suspected cat attack, give for 3 days...the normal course for obvious bites and other wounds is 5-7 days." Maybe this will help.
