Copied from Frances Harcourt-Brown's Facebook page:

"I've set up a survey into the origin of RHD infection. It is sometimes a mystery how rabbits get the infection. My plan is to publish the results on my website and keep them updated. Here is the link:

She is so dedicated, I hope her research is fruitful & we can learn something from so many sad bunny losses

She is. I don't think people always fully appreciate that dedication given that she's retired yet spends a massive amount of time (and money) on research projects. We are so lucky she's doing all this for bunnies.

Still more questions than answers then............

Except that so far the Filivac seems to be very effective.

She is. It's not a pleasant topic to deal with, neither is the sudden death project but we can gain so much from the studies.

I love the way she presents stuff in such a user friendly way. Really interesting how variable the mortality rate is when an owner has multiple rabbits

Yeah, she has a real talent for explaining things well, whether verbal or other.

Frances was emphasising the need for good biosecurity at the nurses' day as she said the results were showing a possible source of infection being vet visits/admissions. Sadly, I think some vets are still not taking it seriously enough.

I was having this exact conversation with someone recently. Thankfully my Vet's Surgery is hyper vigilant re biosecurity, but another local Practice has a very cavalier attitude :cry:

Your vets were 'on it' really quickly with their attempts to get the vaccine too, as I remember, working very hard to get some stock of Cunivak.

I'm still so grateful that Eliza wasn't afflicted with it given she was an inpatient when they had the case at Crab Lane a few months before we got the vaccine. She was in the kennel next to the companion of the deceased rabbit :cry:

The rescue with only one loss stands out. Gosh that's scary about Eliza, it could have been very different

I went into something of meltdown at the time as I there wasn't any known cases in UK, so we didn't know much about it. I spent Christmas 2015 scared that I was going to lose all my rabbits. We are lucky that FHB even recognised it was VHD2, looking back at it... and I found out a year or so later that it was a Camp Nibble rabbit ... god knows what Hannah must have gone through at that time, especially as there was no vaccine available. :cry:

She's a strong lady but it did devastate her. I remember her telling me on a need to know as I'd just adopted Mouseypie - I got worried then, not exactly rationally given the time lapse. No wonder you & I were amongst the 1st to get hold of cunnivac
