I can answer questions on genetics, rabbit behavior, breeding, and health of all rabbits including meat breeds. I am a .....

Sophia,    I would be more concerned over the fact that her dosage was way too high than if she'll be alright after the meds are gone. Since she's still around, I'd say you're probably in the clear. Your

Wendy,    I'm so sorry to hear about this. I'm sure you're taking it hard, so let me start off by saying this is NOT your fault. The breeder should have known the sex of each bun before adopting them out
