    I'm so sorry for your loss :'(
    I had a scare last year when I lost one of my boys and then another of my buns got poorly a few days later. My vet had me rush him straight in where he was quarantined and tested but it turned out not to be RHD2. It was just a horrible coincidence.
    Keeping everything crossed that this is the same for you and that all of your buns remain healthy and safe.

    How happy are you with your vets normally? I don't want to increase your concerns, but if it were me I really would want Cosmo examined (I'm not sure how much they can test for RHD2) and I would search around for some vaccine.

    I would phone around other Vets, personally I would not be happy to just 'wait and see'.

    Could you get to Rutland House, Molly Varga is fantastic

    I f your vet doesn't even stock the vaccine (sorry if this is blunt) then they are not likely to be taking the whole RHD issue seriously. Wait and see is not good advice for the situation.

    Virkon is a good veterinary disinfectant. Comes in tablets, sachets or a big tub of powder. I have a big tub. Smells nice (slight lemon scent) and is pink. You can make up a solution and it keeps for a week. You can soak things in it, use it in the washing machine or as a spray.

    As others have said, ring round and book in at another vet for the vaccinations. If yours hasn't got it in stock, what else can you do? Bit of a pain having to register everyone again, but the only option under the circumstances if you need them covered. I can see why your vet said wait and see what happens as it may well be something else - but that isn't much consolation if you are worried sick.

    If you are in St Helens then ring Molly Varga like Jacks Jane suggested. That's who we saw when we had our scare and she rushed us straight in! She amazing She's in today too!
