Thread: Myxomatosis Outbreaks 2012/13/14

    There has been a confirmed case of Myxomatosis in an unvaccinated pet rabbit in the Leicestershire area.

    Please please make sure that your rabbits' vaccinations are up to date, and share this alert to make sure that other rabbit owners are aware. There was a VHD outbreak in Newcastle upon Tyne very recently too - both Myxi and VHD are out there and rabbits need to be vaccinated. Unvaccinated rabbits that catch either disease stand no hope of recovery.

    The combined vaccine lasts 12 months.

    Wild rabbit with Myxi picked up in Bishop Auckland area tonight. Unexpected trip to vets tomorrow :-( I can't leave them to suffer, and still sleep at night). I'm not a rabbit owner so no worries there, but registered to let people know..I can't bear to see ANY animal suffer, and Myxi is particularly horrible....

    How kind you are. If only all rabbit owners were as compassionate! Thank you for helping lessen the suffering of this little one

    Myxi outbreaks just outside of Canterbury

    A friend has had 5 bunnies pts in 4 weeks and I had to have Hogan PTS on Friday

    Too raw to write about it, I will do in time, thought it best to pass on

    Now I know where Adele got it from (she has made a full recovery I should add).

    wild rabbit just outside Cambridge (not one of my wildies thankfully)

    Vet is saying that she feels the new vaccine should hold it better in vac'd rabbits
    Who carry in their hearts Sweet Pea, Florence, Bramble, Parsnip, Quickthorn, Quince, Sage and little Snowdrop. We also remember Viola who visited.
