    Default Vaccinations - 2020

    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 :
    http://www.noahcompendium.co.uk/?id=-455496

    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 :

    https://www.noahcompendium.co.uk/?id=-470035

    Filavac coversBOTH RHD1 and RHD2

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

    https://www.noahcompendium.co.uk/?id=-465765

    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:

    https://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-health/rabbit-vhd/

    https://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-h...rther-reading/

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

    Re RHD1/RHD2
    https://www.harcourt-brown.co.uk/art...rhagic-disease

    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.

    I have just spoken with MSD Animal Health and I have been informed that the new triple vaccine covering Myxomatosis, RHD1 and RHD2 (Nobivac Myxo-RHD Plus) will be available for Vets to order at the beginning of May, ie Friday of this week

    https://www.msd-animal-health-hub.co...c-MyxoRHD-PLUS

    Whether this means that the single dose RHD2 Vaccines, Filavac and Eravac and the Nobivac-RHD(1) will eventually be withdrawn I do not know.

    Latest update- My Vet has told me that the original Nobivac Myxo-RHD Vaccine will be withdrawn from sale in the not too distant future, so only the Nobivac Myxo RHD Plus will be available. There is a specific protocol for Vets to follow when switching from Vaccinating Rabbits with Nobivac Myxo-RHD and Filavac/Eravac.

    https://www.msd-animal-health-hub.co...bbit-switching

    So I'd advise people to contact their own Vet to discuss switching to the Nobivac Myxo-RHD Plus vaccine as once the Nobivac Myxo RHD is withdrawn there will be no other Myxomatosis vaccine available apart from Nobivac Myxo-RHD Plus .

    This information was posted by binkycodie on another thread and I thought that it would be useful to cross post it on here
