Encephalitozoon cuniculi is a microscopic parasite that can cause disease in rabbits including a head tilt, fits and blindness. The parasite is spread by infected urine or from mother to babies and it can live in the environment for several weeks. Wormers for this parasite are available in the practice and we recommend worming when you acquire a new animal then 2-4 times per year depending on exposure.
