WE ARE NOW OPEN FULL HOURS FOR ALL PATIENTS AND ARE INVITING PEOPLE INTO THE PRACTICE ONCE AGAIN. As of the 24th July 2020, we have been welcoming a limited number of clients into the practice. Video consults are still available for those who wish to reduce their contact with others or who are self isolating. For the safety of all people who enter the practice, we have installed perspex screens in certain areas. We are only allowing a maximum of 2 households (2 people per household max.) into the premises at any one time. Please be aware that only one person may be able to accompany a pet into the consultation room itself (the other person may need to wait in reception). We are also asking that all visitors and clients wear a mask at all times when in the practice. There are exceptions for those who may struggle with these measures and please do call if you have any concerns. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation.
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.
