    Tell them to get it in, or more preferably, immediately change to a better vet

    If your vet does not see many rabbits, it might be worth trying to find another vet locally who is more experienced in rabbits. This would be especially important for their spay.

    dear omi,-yes,research-for the closest exotic dvm..absolutely worth it..--if you have to settle for a dog/cat vet,-you must be knowledgeable of rabbits,[medical care,and medications..in my experience the nearest exotic dvm was over 30 km away-through the most miserable traffic..-,but I did it for the best exotic dvm dr.holly carter--I,am sure there are a lot of people who knew her,as she attended a college of lagamorphs in jolly ole London..sincerely james waller from across the great pond-usa

    There are only two vets here but I am not sure either is experienced with rabbits, might have to see if the vets at pets at home can do, itís a way out the way and might need to get a taxi (we donít have transport) but I will look in to it. Pets at home vets were always good in the past

    yes. such a shame that very few vets seem to know much about rabbits. to most of them it's just another small animal

    Hello and welcome to the Forum.

    I got my bunny Bertie from the Ayrshire branch of SSPCA and he was routinely vaccinated for myxi and both types of VHD by the centre. Although the viral disease is still rare in Scotland your vet should have the vaccines available or be able to get them in.

    You must be so looking forward to having rabbits again. Hope you'll post some photos when they are settled in.
