    Default Vaccinations - 2019

    There are three viruses which Rabbits are at risk of contracting, Myxomatosis, Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 1 (RHD1) and Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (RHD2)

    VACCINATIONS are the only way to insure that Rabbits have optimum protection against these lethal diseases.

    The Vaccines licensed for use within the UK are :

    Nobivac Myxo-RHD, this covers both Myxomatosis and RHD1. Full information about this vaccine can be found here :

    Nobivac Myxo-RHD does NOT give protection against RHD2, for this to be achieved a separate vaccination is required. Most Vets are using Filavac.
    Full details here :

    Filavac coversBOTH RHD1 and RHD2

    Some Vets are using Eravac instead of Filavac. Full details about Eravac here:

    Eravac only covers RHD2

    The RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund) provide some useful information about Myxomatosis, RHD1 and RHD2. These links would be good to take a look at:

    Frances Harcourt-Brown, a recently retired highly respected Rabbit Vet has this information available on her website:

    Re Myxomatosis

    Re RHD1/RHD2

    The cost of each Vaccination may vary as Vets set their own Fees. Many Surgeries offer a Pet Care Plan which is an annual subscription and covers vaccinations amongst many other benefits. An example here:

    Some people may decide to shop around other Veterinary Surgeries to find the best price for vaccinations. This is of course entirely up to the individual, but personally I prefer continuity of care from a Vet who has full clinical information about my Rabbit's medical history and previous vaccination status.

    The most important thing it that your Rabbit(s) is/are vaccinated and that boosters are given at appropriate times.
