What is Rearguard for Rabbits?

Rearguard for Rabbits is used for the prevention of blowfly strike in rabbits. The active ingredient is cyromazine. The clear solution is applied to the skin and comes ready to use in a 25ml bottle with applicator. 

A blowfly infestation, or myiasis, can be a stressing condition affecting domestic rabbits, especially during the summer. Under certain circumstances, flies are attracted to lay their eggs on the rabbit. The larvae, when hatched, can attack the rabbit’s healthy skin tissue and can lead to considerable damage. 

How does Rearguard for Rabbits work? 

The active ingredient is cyromazine. Rearguard does not kill the adult maggots but prevents eggs laid by the flies growing and thriving. 

Rabbits should be first treated in early summer to help eradicate blowfly (Lucilia sericata) and before any flies are spotted. 

Rearguard comes in a bottle with built-in applicator sponge. Apply the medication using the sponge applicator and make sure the fur is thoroughly wet with the solution from the back to the end of the tail.
