    Default 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?
