Bunny Meme Saturday....Not the Vets?!!

Did you Know that Bunnies need to have regular health checks at the Vets?I had mine last week.In a bunny health check visit our weight and teeth are check plus I get my heart and eye checked to as well as the vet does a physical feel over around my tummy to make sure that is in working order too.but in the UK and Europe we have to get vaccinations as well as there are a 3 viruses that are fatal to us we have Myxomatosis  which is rare in the US as Cottontails and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits aren't really affected by the virus and is only fatal to European wild rabbits and Domesticated rabbits as they were originally bred from the European wild Rabbits.Cottontails(Sylvilagus Flordanus),Black-Tailed Jackrabbits(Lepus Californicus) and the European wild rabbits are different Species.

There is also RVHD type 1 and RVHD type 2 type 1 has a short incubation period and type 2 has and incubation period of up to 2 weeks before a rabbit show symptoms and again Cottontails and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits aren't really affected by these 2 virus and is fatal to the domestic and European rabbit populations.In the US cases are rare and doesn't Spread beyond local isolated outbreaks in the domestic rabbit populations.In the UK and Europe we have Vaccines that cover all 3 viruses and in Australia they only have the vaccine for RVHD type 1 as Rabbits are considered pests and in some territories they are illegal as a pet and the wild populations are a big problem.

In the US there are no Vaccines available at this time for the 3 viruses, as out breaks of all 3 Viruses are rare and are isolated pockets in the Domestic populations as they don't really affect the Cottontail and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits populations so don't spread very far,

Last week I had my Myxomatosis and RVHD type 1 combi Vaccination and in September I get the one that covers me for RVHD type 2.Any way my Health check was all good news ....except for I need to lose a bit of weight about half a kilo"sigh" so I'm still on the old diet....so rude! Peanut Bunny you're so lucky!

  2. We heard of myxomatosis, but we didn't know about other diseases. It's interesting to know that despite you all are rabbits, some of you are affected, and some not. Purrs

    1. Je pourrais obtenir Speedy vacciné pour RVHD type 2 tous les 6 mois, mais nous ne sommes pas vraiment dans une zone à risque élevé et je pense que c'est plus de tuer que dans le cas des vaccins actuels, il obtient double sur le vaccin RVHD de type 1 afin d'obtenir Un autre fait sur ce vaccin peut causer des effets secondaires auxquels je ne veux pas l'exposer, xx La mère de Speedy Rachel
