I agree. It can take awhile, so 1 week might be premature.

As I said before Acinetibacters are known for their antibiotic resistance. I did a little bit of research. It sounds like aminoglycosides can be used for this type of bacteria. Unfortunately, they are antibiotics that should be used with caution when it comes to rabbits. Take a look at Gentamycin and Neomycin on MediRabbit.

If continued treatment with the Doxycycline doesn’t help, then I would talk to the vet and weigh you options. You may need to use a riskier antibiotic.
