    Then why did you post this???

    Now you are saying that you know they are important and yet you cant get them done yet - the total opposite of what you said in your earlier post!

    Answering personally I would never not vaccinate a rabbit unless it already had a life threatening illness or serious immune deficiency of another kind which made the vaccine dangerous to give.

    Even then, having seen myxi close up, I would think very hard which was the worse scenario.

    I would never prioritise something else in life over the provision of vaccines for the rabbits.

    My signature might stay as the above for the whole year...afterall...look at those faces...aren't they rather gorgeous? I think so! I might be a little eager with the ChirsMoose spirit...or perhaps just a little lazy in not bothering to change my signature pic. The choice is yours!

    You don't. A good vet and a good owner, together can work out in the huge majority of cases whether or not the rabbit is well. There will always be times when that is not possible, but very, very rarely do you actually hear about those situations.

    Normally, if you're going to hear about anything, it is rabbits with existing conditions being vaccinated when they shouldn't and not coping.

    It's a percentages game and weighing up the risks and the pros and the cons.

    Whatever the owner does they have to be 100% comfortable in themselves with what they have done, and then it won't matter what anyone else says.

    Had someone told me I should have vaccinated Wish or Badger it would have been irrelevant to me because I knew that was not the case.

    if anyone else thought they didnt need vac's and have never been ill etc!

    so far I've have 7 rabbits for up to 18months living along side, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, chickens, hamsters

    and none of them have been ill apart from self inflicted injuries!

    I am looking for a vet that doesn't use cylap, and if I can't I will ask for it to be ordered in. It may not be for a while until they are vaccinated against VHD but the rescue I got them from said that myxi was the priority so they've had that and I'll get them vaccinated against VHD as soon as I can.
    I don't know whereabouts in Surrey you are but my vet in Windlesham uses Anivac and/or Lapinject
