Rearguard is a cutaneous solution containing the active ingredient Cyromazine.
It is use for the prevention of blowfly strike (Lucilia sericata) in domestic rabbits for up to 10 weeks after dosing.
Rabbits should be first treated in early summer before any flies are seen. Rearguard will not kill adult maggots but works by preventing any eggs laid by flies developing.
Rabbits should be treated at 8-10 week intervals throughout the at risk period. Bathing or washing the rabbit after application may result in a reduction of efficacy.
Not to be used on rabbits less than 10 weeks of age.
Do not apply to broken skin.
If the rabbit is continually attractive to flies, this may be due to an underlying disease e.g. diarrhoea or incontinence, or a lack of hygiene within it’s housing. In such cases further advice should be sought from your veterinary surgeon.
