We Now Have Medgene's RHDV2 Vaccine Available For Rabbits

After their initial RHDV2 vaccine they will need to receive a booster within 21 days. After your rabbit has received their initial and booster shots, they can be vaccinated yearly to keep them protected against RHDV2. Rabbits can be vaccinated as early as 4 weeks of age.
What is RHDV and why should I have my rabbit vaccinated?
Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHDV) is a highly contagious and fatal calicivirus that has been spreading across the United States since 2020. It is a fatal virus that affects both wild rabbits and domestic rabbits. Due to the hardy nature of this calicivirus, it can survive on surfaces for prolonged periods of time which allows it to continue to spread easily, while it is not in the wild population of Louisiana yet it is only a matter of time before it is.
A safe and effective RHDV2 vaccine is now available to rabbit owners in Louisiana to help protect their pets. For more information on RHDV2 visit: https://rabbit.org/rhdv
