Why newborn rabbits do not eat milk

Newborn rabbits do not have breast disease, and most often occur in 2 to 3 day old rabbits born during pregnancy, especially during the period of late pregnancy. These are often present in one litter and may develop in part or in total. The clinical symptoms are as follows: The rabbit suddenly does not suck milk, the skin is cool and dark, the body is soft and weak, some quickly die, some have paroxysmal convulsions, and finally die in a coma. The course of illness is usually 2 hours to 3 hours. If it is not cured, it is almost 100%.


During the pregnancy period, especially in the late pregnancy period, the female rabbit should feed 100 grams of high-carbohydrate dietary concentrates such as corn and barley, and salt and bone powder in appropriate amounts, in addition to feeding three green feeds each day. When the weather is good, it releases sun and exercise. After giving birth, 8% of the female rabbit's sugar solution is allowed to freely drink, which can effectively prevent the occurrence of the disease.

Treatment measures

After the practice of diagnosis and treatment, the disease is caused by hypoglycemia, so the effect of treatment with glucose is good. With a bicycle valve core latex tube 2 cm set on the mouthpiece of the syringe, after drawing 25% glucose solution, the latex tube was inserted into the rabbit's mouth, and the piston was slowly pushed. Each rabbit was fed with 1 ml to 2 ml; For rabbits that do not swallow, 5 to 10% glucose solution is injected intraperitoneally with 5 ml to 6 ml. After 15 minutes to 20 minutes, the skin temperature of the rabbits picked up and the convulsions stopped. From 20 minutes to 25 minutes, they licked and slid together and fell asleep. In order to consolidate the curative effect, the treatment was repeated after 4 hours to 6 hours, and glucose was fed continuously for 3 days twice a day.
