Rabbit Vaccinations

Rabbit core (essential) vaccinations protect against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Diarrhoea.


Further information on diseases protected by vaccination


Myxomatosis is caused by a myxoma virus.

It is very contagious and is spread directly between rabbits biut can also be spread by flies and fleas.

Myxomatosis is often fatal in un-vaccinated rabbits.

Symptoms include swelling of the eyes, nose and genitals with a secondary bacterial infection.

Vaccinated rabbits can also be infected but will normally develop some skin sores rather than the fatal outcome of an un-vaccinated rabbit.

At present there is no treatment for myxomatosis.

Viral Haemorrhagic Darrhoea

Viral Haemorrhagic Darrhoea is caused by the Rabbit Heamorrhagic Disease (RHD) Virus.

It is transmitted between rabbits.

Infection with RHD can cause sudden death

Infected rabbits may become lethargic, possibly with a fever but with no other symptoms.

The virus can attack the intestines, liver, spleen and kidneys, often found on post mortem.
