Your rabbit can be protected from life-threatening diseases by getting an annual vaccination. By getting a rabbit vaccination against Myxomatosis, Rabbit (Viral) Haemorrhagic Disease (R(V)HD) and Rabbit (Viral) Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (R(V)HD2) each year, you can be confident your rabbit is taking advantage of the very best protection available as unfortunately, there are no effective treatments for these diseases so vaccinations really are essential.
A virus spread by blood sucking insects such as fleas, mites or mosquitos.
Rabbit (Viral) Haemorrhagic Disease (R(V)HD)
Extremely serious causing high fever/internal bleeding/liver disease and is almost always fatal.
Rabbit (Viral) Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (R(V)HD2)
R(V)HD2 has a lower mortality rate than R(V)HD, but often the only signs seen can be sudden death. There is no specific treatment, and although some rabbits can recover from infection it is fatal in many cases. Vaccination is therefore essential.
