Rabbit Awareness Week

By sad co-incidence we’ve received some upsetting reports from several parts of the country about outbreaks of Myxomatosis. Both wild and pet rabbits are affected, and of course the unvaccinated ones don’t stand a chance. Very often vaccinaed bunnies can be nursed through it even if affected. Please ensure your rabbits’ vaccinations are up to date. The new combined vaccine is reported to give a higher level of protection than the old vaccine could, and protects against VHD at the same time. Far more vets have it in stock now, and it only needs to be given once a year. This time of year is always bad for mosquitoes, which are suspected of being one of the major ways the disease is spread, if you have tips to share about how you prevent mosquitoes please share them below.
