Rabbit Vaccination

Rabbits should be vaccinated against Myxomatosis and VHD (Viral Haemorrhagic Disease)

It is suggested that a six month booster for Myxomatosis should be done in areas of high risk.  Remember that even in a very built up area the presence of railway tracks, parks and allotments can bring wild rabbits (the reservoir of infection) into close proximity to our pet rabbits. The vaccines should not be done at the same time – a gap of 2 weeks is suggested.

Regular vaccination also gets your pet a regular health check at which time you can bring up any worries or concerns you have, early diagnosis of trouble can be made and treatment initiated before things go too far.
