We are open for business to see emergencies and to dispense and deliver medication. However, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we are making some changes and taking addtional steps to ensure that we can continue to stay open for emergencies and delivery of medication for as long as it is safe to do so. Therefore, for the time being , we are closed on Saturdays and will not be seeing any non-emergency patients in the practice at any time. However, please book a video or telephone consultation and if, following this, we think your pet needs to be examined urgently, we will make arrangements to see them in the practice or deliver medications to you. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation and do call if you have any queries.
RVHD2 is a new strain of rabbit disease. Although similar to RVHD1, they are different. There are reported cases of RVHD2 in the UK and we think it's vital for all rabbits nowadays to have this vaccination.
The regular vaccinations for rabbits do not cover RVHD2. Summer is a great time to vaccinate as the flying insects that carry the disease are more prevalent at the moment and throughout the summer.
Rabbits therefore need two vaccinations - one for the myxomatosis and RVHD1 and a second vaccination that covers for the RVHD2 strain (given at least 2 weeks apart from the other vaccination) - they can be given in any order and can be more than 2 weeks apart if required.
