Keeping up to date with vaccinations is vital, to help keep your pet protected against potentially life threatening diseases. At all our surgeries we offer full health checks and vaccinations.
Why does my rabbit need vaccinations?
Rabbits, particularly those who have access to a garden or fresh vegetation from the garden, should be vaccinated every year to protect them against deadly diseases. Myxomatosis in particular can be spread by contact with mosquitoes and fleas as well as direct contact with other rabbits. It is therefore important to vaccinate even if your bunnies live indoors.
These diseases are:
- Viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD)
When should I vaccinate my bunny?
Rabbits can be vaccinated from 5 weeks of age onwards with onset of immunity 3 weeks after.
