Is this possible?

My rabbit had worms a while ago and we were going to treat her for it right away but I didnt see any after a couple days so I waited and a couple days later, still nothing! Now its clear that she doesnt have worms at all, i know for sure that she had them before because the vet said, but is it possible for rabbits to just get rid of worms on their own?

Thanks for the advice, I made an appointment with the vet for her to get checked out :)

Bring your sweetie to the Vet just to ensure that the worms are all gone. I must admit, NOT seeing the worms in the stool is a GOOD sign -- but if they are hiding, what do you do? Play it safe and call the Vet.

No, rabbits can not get rid of worms on their own. Typically, tapeworm infestations are cyclical, in that sometimes you will see the worms, sometimes you don't. Usually, when you can't see the worms (more properly, worm segments) in the feces or around the rectum, it means that the tapeworm is growing. Your rabbit needs to see a vet and be safely wormed.
