When should you use the product?
Tympania in rabbits causes discomfort and severe abdominal pain. Due to the pain syndrome, the animal cannot eat, it quickly weakens. The danger of bloating lies in the fact that the enlarged stomach presses on the diaphragm, disrupting the rabbit's breathing. There is a disruption in the work of other organs, often everything ends in the death of the animal. Therefore, you need to use "Tympanol" immediately, as soon as the swelling is detected.
The drug for internal use is designed to inhibit gas formation, destruction and removal of gas bubbles.
It has antiseptic and ruminating effects. "Tympanol" speeds up the peristalsis of the digestive system, relaxes the sphincters of the proventriculus. The drug is prescribed to rabbits with the formation of gas and bloating caused by overeating or eating easily fermenting food.
Method of application for rabbits
The liquid in the vial is shaken before administration to the rabbits. According to the instructions, then it is diluted with water as 1 to 10. Stir again until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
For rabbits, the dosage of "Tympanol" is 0.5-1 ml per 1 kg of body weight. The drug works quickly, but if the bloating does not disappear after 20 minutes, the procedure must be repeated. It is allowed to use the product up to 5 times a day. The diluted liquid is injected into the rabbit's mouth using a syringe without a needle. Animals do not drink medicine on their own, so it is not poured into drinkers. If the animal resists, you need to pour the solution into the mouth by force. To do this, you need to take him by the head with one hand, and hold his legs with the other.
