    Hopefully they will still do the first rabbit/subsequent rabbit pricing. I'm really baffled with that, how it's structured ... Nobivac for first vaccination for that rabbit 39, then - 36 for first rabbit; 33 for subsequent rabbits ... Filavac 32 for first; 24 for subsequent... so one 6/3 less the other 8 less.

    When I asked the receptionist about it she said it was because for the 'first' one the vet had to do all the explaining about the virus and the vaccination. ... but when Eliza was keeping her in-patient husbunny company she had the vaccination whilst there and I didn't get any feedback re weight etc. When I realised I have been invoiced the full whack of 36 I took her back in and asked if they could trim her claws

    I hope it's less than 60 when they do get it.

    I've never really understood that. They do it for consults too - 2nd animal same condition or 2nd animal different condition. Something like that. I suppose that must be to cover dialogue about their diet & lifestyle. Its a shame you never got the health cheque. Got to hand it to Paul he fed back his findings well & any gaps I questioned he knew the answer to. I resent not being able to see your preferred vet there anymore. Let me know if you hear of Heather or Ruth returning

    It was a bit strange but was assured that Eliza did get a health check but just that I didn't get the feedback. They didn't realise how much it mattered to me, just thought it was quicker all round not to waste a consultation (which was fine - but don't charge me full whack for it).

    I used to have a list of things in my head to fire at Frances when I had a consultation. I even often had a list to prompt me tucked in vaccination cards. She even said to me once that I didn't have to hide the bit of paper I do that with Ruth and Heather too, and to some extent did with Becky. I miss that too. And I haven't used the local vets since lockdown as there's only one vet there I'm willing to see. I even used 'the other' local vet on a Sunday when Jesika wasn't eating. So, yeah, I miss Sam a lot as well but I just don't want to risk having to deal with any of the other vets. Surely R and H should be back pretty soon?!

    For anyone being charged a silly amount for the new vaccine you could always request a prescription from the Vet (usually costs about 10.00 ) and buy the Vaccine online

    https://www.viovet.co.uk/Nobivac-Myxo-RHD-Plus/c49983/

    The Vet will have had to have examined the Rabbit in the recent past, so they may slap a consultation fee on I suppose. To me it just seems to be taking the wotsit a bit to be charging over 80.00 for a vaccine that costs less than half of that wholesale

    66 for me

    How can they discontinue the old myxi vacc? Wasn't there something about "only rabbits that have had their original vaccines can have the combi one" or something?
