    I'm so glad your little one is still ok. Beau is still doing great. Its bene 5 weeks since we lost Timmy so we are staying confident that Beau didnt contract it. The vet said to give it a month so I hope its safe to say hes ok now.

    So glad Beau is well, here's hoping they both continue to thrive. I never knew how delicate rabbits are. My dog Betty is 9 and I've never had to worry about her health. x

    I asked my (bunny-savvy) vet about Filavac this morning when I took my two in for their annual Filavac boosters. His advice was: as a bunny-savvy owner, keep your ear to the ground and if there's a flare in you area, consider vaccinating 6-monthly, otherwise the manufacturer's 12-months should be fine. We've been lucky in south Notts, a few cases nearby but not in the city of Nottingham. He also said the cost could, of course, be an issue as paying 40 a time (at my surgery) is not cheap, but most bunny-savvy owners are clued up enough to be able to judge the risks.
    The geeky one...

    Just a reminder that RHD has not gone away, even though it may not be 'spoken of' on RU as much atm. (Same applies to Myxomatosis). There is still confirmed cases of multiple losses of unvaccinated Rabbits to RHD

    Please, please make sure your Rabbits are up to date with all of their vaccinations. Details of what vaccinations are needed can be found here :

    It can be that when RHD is not 'spoken about' so much online one can be lulled into a false sense of security. The viruses ( Myxo & RHD1 + 2 ) are still a real and present dangers to ALL Rabbits. Vaccination is essential.

    Thanks for keeping the momentum going with this, Jane. It's easy to convince yourself that RHD isn't around just because you can't see it ... but it is, it very much is and nobody should get complacent about it.

    To emphasise the fact that RHD2 is still a real and present danger a cyber friend has just lost two Baby Belgian Hares to the evil virus They were due to be vaccinated next week. Location Sussex.

    PLEASE, PLEASE VACCINATE YOUR RABBITS

    There has been an unconfirmed case of 3 deaths of Rabbits bought from Pets at Home in St Helens WA9 1JF

    ''Edit : third rabbit died during the night, so all three died within 72 hours

    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

    I am finding it very hard to comprehend the thinking of some people who know about RHD2 yet still chose NOT to vaccinate their Rabbits. A recent loss of 8 Rabbits (Haywards Heath, Sussex) all unvaccinated despite owner KNOWING of the RHD2 risk and that there had been very local recent losses to the disease

    What on earth does it take to make people understand that no amount of 'disinfecting' of the environment will equate to the protection of VACCINATION.

    Dont procrastinate VACCINATE !!
