In some areas, the rate of infection can be up to 80%. The spores can live in the environment for up to a month, so it would just take one animal activity shedding the spores to pee in your yard to result in exposure. The vast majority of infected rabbits never display symptoms. Is it worth treating with Panacur on a regular basis as a preventative? That’s been debated for some time now. Personally, I wouldn’t worry unless your bun starts to display symptoms. But I guess it depends on how heavily contaminated the area is. There are tons of nasty things outside, including raccoon roundworm.
