 I just went through and organized Wilbur and Totoro's records today and decided to read through Totoro's from when he was the at humane society. I found out two things that I didn't know before 1. he had worms and was treated with panacur 2. he had an upper respiratory infection and was given baytril for a couple weeks. Poor guy! Emaciated, lethargic, dehydrated, covered in ticks, two bott flies in his neck cutting off his airway, AND an upper respiratory infection and worms??? What a tough little bunny. So my question is: if a rabbit has had an upper respiratory infection before does that make it more likely that it will reoccur? Also, could he pass one onto Wilbur? I have heard that upper respiratory infections can be hard to detect sometimes and I just want to know if I should be on an extra look out for them. If anyone has like a good website page on upper respiratory infections could you please give me the link so I could read up on them?

Thanks!

Some rabbits are more susceptible but it sounds like he had multiple problems due to poor care. It will not necessarily pass onto the other rabbits either.
