Did you know that, without regular vaccination, rabbits are seriously at risk from two potentially fatal infectious diseases?
Myxomatosis is a very distressing viral disease spread by blood sucking insects such as rabbit fleas. Affected rabbits usually become very ill, commonly suffering from blindness and pneumonia- and sadly most will die.
Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD) is another highly contagious and deadly viral disease. The virus is spread both by direct contact between rabbit, or via contaminated hutches, bedding, or food and sometimes inadvertently by humans. Symptoms include loss of appetite, lethargy, nose bleeds, and sudden death.
Happily, we can now offer vaccination against both of these distressing diseases. Please contact us for further information on vaccination or any aspect of caring for you your pet rabbit.
