Les médicaments antiparasitaires pour chiens et chats à base de fipronil ne doivent pas être appliqués aux lapins

Abstract : Cases of fipronil poisoning in pet rabbits are regularly report-ed to the French Agency for Veterinary Medicinal Products (ANSES-ANMV). The vast majority of these cases are due to the deliberate use of drugs containing fipronil intended for dogs or cats. Between 2013 and 2020, ANSES-ANMV re-ceived 137 such reports of adverse effects. Sixty-six cases were considered serious; a total of 33 rabbits died following the use of one of these antiparasitic drugs. The annual number of reports has generally remained stable, with an average of 17 cases per year. In this context, ANSES-ANMV reminds rabbit owners not to treat their pets with veterinary drugs intended for dogs or cats, especially if they contain fipronil. In the event of accidental exposure, the rabbit should be washed and veterinary advice sought promptly, even if no adverse effects have yet occurred. Measures should also be taken to avoid accidental exposure of rabbits in households where other treated animals are present.
