Vaccinate your rabbit.

Vaccinating your rabbit.

Two serious and contagious viral diseases occur in rabbits. Myxomatosis and VHD (Viral Haemorrhagic Disease), also known as RHD. RHD occurs in type 1 and type 2.


Myxomatosis is transmitted by stinging insects. In the summer, these are very active. In the wild, many rabbits die of myxomatosis.


The RHD virus is also highly contagious. You can carry it from the outside to the inside by your shoes on the grass. But often it goes directly from rabbit to rabbit.

All in one vaccine

There is one vaccine that works preventively against these common virus infections. This vaccine works well and gives 12 months resistance against RHD and Myxomatosis. When your rabbits are not vaccinated yet, we advise you to make an appointment.
