Rabbits are all vaccinated with Nobivac RHD/Myxo to give protection against myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease (VHD-1 strain). This can be given from 5 weeks of age and an annual booster is required.
RHD (Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease) and Myxomatosis are diseases found throughout the UK and are both fatal to un-vaccinated rabbits. These diseases can affect outdoor AND indoor rabbits. RHD is particularly infectious and contagious. They can both be spread by direct and indirect contact with infected rabbits and by biting insects. The virus can survive for many months in the environment. We strongly recommend protecting your pet against these illnesses through vaccination.
