News for Rabbit Owners

We have had a confirmed case of Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Type 2 (RHD2) in Bude. 


The standard rabbit vaccine is against Myxomatosis and Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Type 1 (RHD1), as these are the most commonly seen conditions. Therefore at risk rabbits will require a vaccination against RHD2. This vaccine is still very new and is currently required every 6 months.


RHD2 is relatively new in the UK and can be spread on clothing, through contact with infected rabbits and via birds or insects. Therefore keeping your rabbits' hutch as clean as possible and avoiding any contact with other rabbits is important.

Symptoms are usually very quick to develop and include; lethargy, breathing quickly and having an increased temperature. 

Unfortunately due to the speed of deterioration rabbits are often found dead or die suddenly.

If you have a rabbit die suddenly please let us know, this will help us monitor any spread. If you are at all concerned about your rabbit and would like them to be vaccinated against RHD2 then please book them in for an appointment at one of our branches.
