Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2 (RHDV2) is a highly contagious and often fatal disease in rabbits. The RHDV2 virus can cause a rapid-onset disease and often the only sign of illness is sudden death in domestic and wild rabbits, wild hares, and pikas.

The State of Tennessee has now given us access to a vaccine for prevention of this disease. This is a two shot series with the second vaccine given 21 days after the first. We highly recommend keeping your rabbits indoors and avoid bringing the disease from outside rabbits until your rabbit has received the two vaccine doses.

Please call us at 865-690-6481 or click to request an appointment today for your rabbit to be vaccinated. Clients with an exam within the past year will not be charged an additional exam fee.
