Deadly Outbreak of Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (RVHD2)

Posted: 20th December 2018

RVHD2 is a fatal disease that can kill rabbits within hours, with many rabbits displaying no symptoms until it’s too late.

Rabbits who have previously been vaccinated against RHDV only will not be protected against this strain of RVHD2 so return visits to vets are being encouraged, even for rabbits who have received a primary course of vaccinations when they were young as boosters are needed to ensure immunity.
