Myxomatosis Outbreaks

Myxomatosis Outbreaks

Are your bunnies' vaccinations up to date?

We've recently been notified of outbreaks of Myxi in wild and domestic rabbits in three different parts of the country;

  • Church Broughton in Derbyshire
  • Near Brill in Buckinghamshire
  • Newcastle upon Tyne

After such a mild winter, it's not surprising that this has started so early in the year. There have been no markedly low temperatures to kill off mosquitoes, and plenty of water where they can breed.

Your best defense for your pets is to vaccinate, so please make an appointment with one of our vets today if your rabbits' jabs aren't up to date.
