RVHD2 vaccine for rabbits

You may have heard on the news recently about a new, deadly disease affecting rabbits in the UK. This disease is known as Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease2 (RVHD2) and is becoming an increasing concern. It is a new strain of the classic RVHD1 and it can affect rabbits of all ages.

Your rabbit’s normal vaccine protects against RVHD1 and Myxomatosis, both of which have been prevalent in the UK for decades. However, it does not appear to offer protection to this new strain, which we believe has come over from France.

We are pleased to say that we now have the vaccination to help you protect your rabbits and we recommend that all rabbits receive it annually.

Your normal RVHD1 and Myxomatosis combination vaccination should still be given and there should be at least 2 weeks in between this and the new one.

The vaccinations are currently ONLY available at Highcroft Veterinary Hospital in Whitchurch.  The cost is £26 including VAT and all consultations will include a full health check.

Please call 01275 832410 to book your appointment.
