Rabbit Wormer?

What should I worm rabbits with? I have asked at the local Co-op, but no one seems to know. There MUST be some type. Rabbits can't be the ONLY animal that doesn't get worms.

Ivomec (ivermectin), the kind used for cows. Use a syringe without the needle and drop it right into their mouths. Big breeds like New Zealands or Californians get 3 drops, smaller breeds like mini-rex or holland lops get 2 drops. Hope this helps!

I just drop the ivermec on the back of the neck. Yes 3 drops for my larger breeds. I tired to do the mouth, but with so many I found it easier to drop n back of neck.

I used Dr Daniels cat wormer. It smells like carmel and the rabbits don't mind the taste. I put it right on their food according to weight. Got it a the pet store.
