    Yet again rumours are circulating on Social Media that there may be no point in vaccinating against RHD2 (Filivac/Eravac) as VACCINATED Rabbits are still succumbing to RHD2. I am not a qualified Veterinary Professional, BUT, many of these losses have been Breeder Rabbits. Many Breeders are obtaining bulk supplies of either Filavac or Eravac and Vaccinating their 'stock' themselves. There are a few potential problems with this : 1- A full Veterinary Health Check prior to vaccination may not have been carried out- a sick Rabbit/Rabbit incubating illness is unlikely to develop a full immune response to the vaccine. 2- The vaccine needs to be kept refrigerated, if it is not kept at the appropriate temperature during transit/storage it may be rendered ineffective.

    So, if you read any accounts of 'multiple vaccine failures' please do not let this stop you from vaccinating your Rabbits against RHD2 ( and Myxo/RHD1 via Nobivac) Vaccination is the ONLY weapon we have to try to protect out Pet Rabbits from what is a highly virulent and highly fatal disease.

    We could not agree more.
    Trust me if you don’t vaccinate you will deeply regret it.
    When we spoke with our vet last year we were informed as we had an enclosed garden we would be very low risk and most likely wouldn’t benefit unless there was an outbreak in the local area. We were also advised there was speculation about over vaccination which given the current evidence thus is wrong as the vaccine is certainly safer than no vaccine.
    We regret to say we never kept up to date with the RHD2 outbreak and totally underestimated how virulent and deadly it was.
    Two of ours were house-bunnies (with day trips to the garden) and two lived outside.
    In three days we lost three of our bunnies to suspected RHD2. Symptoms all varied.

    No rabbit is safe. Don’t make the same mistake as we did and vaccinate before it is too late.

    The European Medicines Agency (EMA) have now published an amended Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) for Eravac which cites duration of immunity (DOI) as 12 months.

    Hipra web site to be updated.

    Adopted three brothers from pets at home St Helens 13 days ago. All three went for mxmy and rvd 1 jabs on Friday. One died during the night on Saturday and the second passed at this evening. Vet said first one probably has virus so other two will have it. Will call vets tomorrow regarding second rabbit. Hoping the third doesn't have it but highly unlikely 😢

    Edit : we will also be contacting the store and the council

    I know I keep going on about it, but please make sure you vaccinate your Rabbits. The virus is still rife and will remain so, I fear

    Thanks for passing on that info James. Viruses of all kinds can be extremely skilled at mutating to beat any weapons we humans may come up with to try to destroy them. You stay safe too James xx
