      Recently I left my two bunnies in the care of my sister as I was traveling far away by car (8hour drive) and didn’t want to put them in that stressful situation. I had given my sister full instructions on how to care for them and what to do.

      I come back a month later and shes done everything as told expect clean the cage weakly. So their cage hadn’t been cleaned for a month.

      when I decided to sit outside and let them roam as I spent time cleaning out their cage I noticed worms in the there. I took them to the vet the next day and the vet said there was nothing wrong and they where perfectly okay.

      im still worried as they are indoor bunnies and could the worms have just came from the fact that everything had been sitting there for a month?

      OOof, that is so frustrating!! That’s great the vet checked them over already to make sure they didn’t have fly strike, that would be my main concern.

      I am guessing that the worms were fly larvae that living in their waste that had been accumulating. I would double check their hind ends to make extra sure there aren’t any larvae there and keep their area very clean, but things should be OK once the waste is removed.

      I moved your thread so more people will see it. I agree with Dana. As long as there is no sign of flystrike, it was probably just maggots that found the accumulation of waste a suitable home. The problem should resolve itself after everything has had a good cleaning.
