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.
