WARNING TO OUR RABBIT OWNERS!!
We have unfortunately had a confirmed case of Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD-2) in our area!!!
One of our clients has devastatingly had six of her nine pet rabbits suddenly die from the deadly virus. These rabbits were very well cared for and had not left their enclosed garden, which worryingly indicates the virus which is extremely contagious, may have been carried in by wildlife.
There is no treatment available once a rabbit has contracted the virus and they are likely to die very suddenly without prior signs of illness.
Please let us protect your rabbits by bringing them to be vaccinated against VHD-2. This vaccine is given separately from the vaccine for myxomatosis & VHD-1.
Now that we know this virus is in Cornwall, we fear it may not be the last rabbit fatality that we see caused by VHD-2
If your rabbit is already vaccinated against the Myxo and RVHD1 you can phone our reception and request getting your rabbit vaccinated against the RVHD2, as long as there has been at least a 2 week gap since the last Myxo RVHD1 booster.
