Rearguard is a product containing 6% Cyromazine that prevents blowfly strike for 10 weeks in domestic rabbits.
Rabbits should be treated first in early summer before any flies are seen and then be treated every 8-10 weeks under conditions of repeated blowfly challenge.
Rearguard works by preventing any eggs laid by flies developing. It will not kill adult maggots. In cases of existing flystrike, adult maggots should be removed by mechanical means and appropriate supportive treatment given (seek veterinary advice).
Rearguard should then be applied to the fur to prevent development of new larvae and re-strike. If the rabbit is continually attractive to flies, this may be down to an underlying disease (e.g. incontinence, diarrhoea) or a lack of hygiene within its housing. In such cases further advice should be sought from your veterinary surgeon.
Apply as directed by instructions on bottle. Ensure there is no other reason why flies would be attracted to your rabbit. Keep the hutch clean. Check for Diarrhoea, dental problems, and other illnesses. Not for use in rabbits less than 10 weeks old. Not for use in pregnant rabbits.
