View Full Version : It's myxi - again :( UPDATE 2nd nov

Pickle died last week of myxi, my second bunny to die of this awful disease. All my rabbits are vaccinated.

Today I took Pootle (Pickle's mate) in for her myxi jab, only to discover she also had myxi....

Three bunnies all ill with myxi when they have been vaccinated. I questioned Mark the vet who is also having serious issues with other pet rabbits with myxi. He is in talks with the company who makes the vaccination as he believes it is not working. I suspected it didn't work the first time round two years ago when I lost Twinkle, and now I have lost Pickle and also Pootle maybe...

I don't want to alarm anybody, but Mark is thinking perhaps twice yearly vaccinations with this new combination jab might help, as otherwise he is thinking it is not working too.

I have left Pootle with Mark, asking him to do all he can for her...:(

I'm so sorry for your loss, this is a real worry then.

What vets do you go to since you're in Kent. I got to a specialist called Mark at Trinity in Maidstone and just wondered if it was him.

Oh I'm so very sorry to hear this :( I do hope that Pootle can be helped.

My Beatrice came down with one solitary myxo nodule, two weeks before the end of the 12 months (the booster was booked when she came down with it) - so for her, while she did get something, the vaccine clearly still worked right at the end of that period. I wonder if there are regional genetic changes going on, meaning that it's not working as well for some regional strains than others?

All I can say is Pootle has the best chance being with Mark, he is excellent. How awful for you to have this again after vaccinating all of your bunnies.

Please keep us updated.

I just don't think the vaccine works. It cant if three bunnies have all got it with the vaccine being given. Both Twinkle and Pickle looked like they had full blown myxi, whereas Pootle looks more nodular at the moment but it could be that we have caught it early.

cpayne
07-10-2014, 08:53 PM
Let's hope you caught it early and Mark can do something to help. What is the treatment? I have no idea thankfully.

Yes it doesn't seem to work. I wonder if it's the combined one that doesn't work or when there were singular ones for myxi and VHD it did then. Be interesting to see if anyone goes back to the singular ones or if the vaccine has never worked. I've always thought it was like the flu jab you can still get it but to a lesser extent so gives the rabbit a good chance, whereas what has happened with you, seems to have made no difference to your bunnies.

Has Mark had a lot of other cases I wonder or maybe it was a duff batch. I hate to think it doesn't work at all especially after the thread about panacur not working. Seems we don't have a lot to protect our bunnies.

It cant be a bad batch as they were all vaccinated at different times - Mark is concerned enough to be in talks with the manufacturers. He is dealing with a lot of myxi bunnies at the moment he said.

I hate to think it doesn't work at all especially after the thread about panacur not working. Seems we don't have a lot to protect our bunnies.

It definitely does work - even if there are some times when it seems not to. We have (well, actually had) an enormous wild rabbit population round here, I could look out of any window at any time of day and see between 10-20 rabbits. Now there are none at all, they've all been struck down with myxi. But I have 6 vaccinated bunnies here, who do get into quite close contact with the wildies, and they are all still alive and well. Beatrice came down with one nodule, two weeks before the end of the year's booster, but she is fine now. So she definitely came into contact with myxi and has survived. In all honesty, if my 6 weren't vaccinated, given the rate of loss in the wildies, I suspect they would all have come down with it by now.

I know it really doesn't help when there does seem to be a devastating localised failure - but I just wanted to point out that this does not mean that the vaccine does not work at all, because it clearly does!

A similar thing happened to someone who adopted some of our rescue rabbits. Two of her rabbits had myxi last year although they did recover but this year she lost 2 others, all were vaccinated.

We contacted the RWAF and they approached the manufacturer who confirmed that the duration of immunity is 12 months and they do not recommend vaccinations every 6 months.

Maybe if they get a lot of reports they may look into it more.

Pootle is still fighting this horrid disease - she is staying in at the vets until she is better - however long it takes - however much money it costs... I haven't seen her since she was admitted Tuesday night and hope she knows she is in the best place to survive this :(

I am now questioning why the vet didn't even suggest trying to save Pickle when he had myxi last week... it wasn't Mark I saw and now I am beating myself up about the decision to PTS :(

Vegan_Bunny
09-10-2014, 06:38 PM
I think it depends on the severity of the myxi on whether or not pts is the best option.

I hope he starts getting better. Who did you see who suggested putting pickle to sleep. I know if mark isn't in and doughnut is admitted the following day mark always takes over her care. I guess because he is her vet and done all the tests.

I think the other two are really good there too but maybe pickle was at a later stage where nothing could be done.

I thought that vaccinated rabbits could still get myxi, but a mild form.

It says it here:

"How severely any one vaccinated rabbit will be affected is impossible to predict."

I and many others (and their vets) still find Panacur works very well, and very recently too. My vet certainly recommends using it.

I have yet to see any well documented evidence of it's failure.

It really does make me wonder if you've got a particularly virulent strain down there in Kent which the vaccine isn't working as well on - perhaps a strain partly 'trapped' there by the geography of Kent. My own vet says that she is finding the new vaccine much better, only a few weeks ago she was saying that she hasn't lost a single vaccinated bunny to myxi in the past couple of years, whereas she used to see loads who succumbed to it with the previous vaccine, so there's definitely some variation in perceptions of effectiveness. It's a real concern, isn't it - hopefully your vet will keep on pushing the manufacturers especially if he's seeing a lot of it.

Pootle has been allowed home :D

She looks like she only has nodular myxi and she has one eyelid that has been affected badly, and the other eye is a bit crusty but not too swollen. She has a spot on the end of her nose too, but other than that I am amazed she is doing so well.

she jumped out the carrier and started munching on the grass and leaves straight away! She is on antibiotic and metacam and is back at vets for check up on Thursday.

He says it's looking like the vaccine will be done twice yearly again, as it doesn't seem to be lasting the whole 12 months. This is the only factor relevant in my three bunnies over the years that have had myximotosis. Either way I will vaccinate twice yearly from now on!

Pootle is eating lots grass instead of hay ATM but happy so far with how she is doing.

Yes definitely better to be safe than sorry.

They always like fresh things don't they when they are poorly. Grass is the best for her anyway and it's great she is eating and getting back on track. It's strange that Doughnut goes mad for crunchies and begs for her bits of muesli but when she's ill has no interest and would rather have grass.

Very interesting about twice yearly vax ... I wonder if the twice yearly VHD will have any adverse affects, as over vaccination has proved to have in cats and dogs.

Pootle is still doing well - the nodules on her eyelid have now scabbed over and are hard.. the other eye they seem to just be going down slowly. She takes her metacam and antibiotics well and is eating grass, veggies and a few pellets.. she seems to be off hay at the moment, but I am reasonably happy with what she is eating. she is in her playhouse with tons of hay, and blankets and fleeces and heat pads, and she is pooping and weeing... I don't think she caught it too bad as she hasn't had any other lesions come up that I have seen, and her breathing is good.

Had they been vaccinated with the older vaccine? I'm sure I read somewhere that being vaccinated with a certain vaccination (I think it was one in the EU) meant that the new vaccine wouldn't be as effective?

Twinkle was never well. I can accept that.

Pickle never had any problems, he was eight years old and as fit as anything.

Just a quick update - Pootle came home last night after being in the vets for about two weeks. Her scabs have fallen off, her breathing is better and she is eating.

I have to take her back tomorrow evening to be weighed to check she is holding her weight well and eating enough by herself. I am also still giving her metacam orally and also have to inject her once a day with antibiotics.

First injection this morning - went well (Phew!)

I hope Pootle is doing okay today :wave:

I used a flannel dampened with warm water to clean around my buns eyes when he had an infection and it helped get the stickiness out of his fur xx

Well Pootle has been home for a while. She was losing a small amount of weight due to her lack of enthusiasm for eating. She goes back to the vets Tuesday for a check up and weigh. She is eating wild stuff mainly, grasses, brambles, dandelions, nettles. I am also giving her banana and porridge oats. She is eating that but not hay or pellets at the moment but seems quite strong and lively, although hates being handled. She is still on metacam and daily antibiotic injections. I can see light at the end of the tunnel, all scabs gone now but fur is still all stuck to her face around her eyes. I am trying to wash it off bit by bit but it's not easy.

Thank you for replying, sorry I missed your post! I have been using cotton wool balls and boiled warm water, but it's a long job!

It sounds like you are doing a great job with Pootle and the scabs having gone is a really good sign. :thumb:

Oh yes! She has been through so much - she has never been on her own since I got her, she had Pickle for her partner, but he sadly died of myxi immediately -she then had it, but has survived it - spending a lot of time in the vets on her own, without me... no wonder she was so subdued in the vets.. alone, strange place, not feeling well, no Pickle.... She is home now, but I still wonder what she is feeling now she is on her own.. she is doing well medically, but I cant help feeling so bad that she is alone out there where she and Pickle lived together...

I'm taking her back as haven't changed her diet but she has some soft mixed in poops. Havent been back in 6 months which is great as she is so well but just need advice from Mark and want them to clip her so that she can be nice and clean.
