 Caring for Companion Animals

Rabbits -Are your vaccinations up to date?

There are two diseases which we strongly recommend you vaccinate against.  These are Myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD - also known as VHD and RCD).  Both of these are very serious and invariably fatal should a rabbit contract either one.  You can protect your rabbit against these by keeping up to date with his/her vaccinations.  Since May 2012, this has become much simpler as there is now a vaccine which is only required once a year and covers for both diseases.  If your rabbit is not vaccinated, then we suggest he/she is inoculated as soon as possible, because as the warmer weather approaches your rabbit becomes increasingly more at risk, owing to an increase in mosquitoes and fleas which both carry the disease between rabbits.  Myxomatosis does not require direct contact with a wild rabbit and fencing alone cannot protect rabbits from infection.
