Vaccination schedule for your rabbit:

  • 10 weeks of age (1st vaccination) against Calicivrus. Calicivirus is a viral haemorrhagic disease and can cause sudden death in rabbits.
  • 14 weeks of age (2nd vaccination) booster against Calicivirus.
  • After their 2nd vaccination they will then need to have a yearly vaccination to keep them fully protected.  Don’t worry if you forget, we will send you a reminder a month before your rabbit’s vaccination is due!


What about myxomatosis?


There is currently no vaccination in Australia for myxomatosis which is a fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes.  Prevention is therefore particularly important, with rabbit hutches and outdoor areas being made mosquito-proofed.
