Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD)

 

Overview

  • RHD is also known as VHD, RVHD or ‘Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease’.
  • RHD is caused by a virus, it causes severe symptoms and often death.
  • It’s common in wild rabbits and spreads easily to pet rabbits.
  • RHD spreads through the air, by insect bites or by contact with an infected rabbit.
  • Vaccinate your rabbits against both Myxomatosis and RHD to protect them from these serious diseases.

 

Symptoms

Symptoms can include:

 Blood around the nose, mouth or bottom

Low energy (lethargy)

 Eating less

 High temperature

Sudden death

RHD often develops so quickly that infected rabbits die before their owner notices any symptoms.

 

Vaccination should be completed at least 3 weeks before rabbits go outside (where they are at risk of being exposed to infection).
