These diseases can be spread by various insects, such as fleas – especially if your rabbit lives alongside cats or dogs.
Our vaccinations protect your rabbit from Myxomatosis & Haemorrhagic Disease (both are RVHD1 and RVHD2) which are common but usually fatal illnesses if not protected against.
What is Myxomatosis?
This disease can be passed through various biting insects such as fleas, mites or even mosquitos but it can also be found in your rabbit’s hutch or water bottle and can affect their lungs or genitals. If your rabbit starts to develop a swollen face, ears or genitals contact us immediately to get your rabbit booked in with one of our Vets to be checked.
What is Haemorrhagic Disease?
This is a virus that attacks your rabbit’s vital organs and can be fatal without protection as there is no cure for this illness.
If your rabbit shows any symptoms such as:
• Lack of energy
• Loss of appetite
• Blood around the nose
please contact one of our Nurses for an immediate appointment as the disease progresses very quickly.
