Bunny News: RHVD-2 Vaccination Day

Wendy  ·  Feb. 27, 2023

This awful disease, RHVD-2, was found on Vancouver Island a few days ago after being absent from BC for two years.

It has a 100% mortality rate.

We are taking extra precautions; the rabbits are all together in the rabbit room, which is off-limits to all but essential staff.

It's really scary stuff!

Please read the BCSPCA links below to learn about the disease and the important precautions you can take. If you have rabbits in your care, we urge you to contact your veterinarian and inquire about the vaccine.
