Sorry to hear it, Sama. It appears from your brief statement that you're dealing with a very bad parasite, probably a deadly strain of coccidiosis.

It could also be something else, of course, which is why it will be very important for you to take a sick rabbit (or a recently dead one) to the vet and obtain a proper diagnosis. Only then will you be able to properly treat and solve the problem.

In the meantime, what kind of feed are you feeding? How old is it? Is it moldy? What color are the whites of the rabbits' eyes? Are they yellow? If the feed is moldy, it can kill your rabbits. You cannot rescue moldy feed - you have to dump it into the garden (fertilizer) and buy fresh feed.

Are you able to obtain Bene-Bac? This is a probiotic that is helpful for improving the healthy bacteria in young rabbits' intestinal tracts. This might be very helpful, but probably won't solve the whole problem, especially if your rabbits also have other parasites.

Hope you can solve the rabbits' health challenges reasonably quickly.

Good luck!
