‘We strongly advise that Rabbits are vaccinated, starting as young as six weeks of age.’
Keeping Your Pet Healthy And Happy
We strongly advise that Rabbits are vaccinated, starting as young as six weeks of age.
The single vaccination helps to protect against myxomatosis and Rabbit haemorrhagic disease.
We also recommend an annual full physical examination and booster vaccination, to maintain protection against myxomatosis and RHD.
Rabbits may require regular treatment for external parasites e.g. fleas and mites. Rabbit owners also need to be aware of fly strike and how to minimise the risks. Speak to any of our Qualified Nurses, or book a free clinic for more information.
‘We recommend annual full physical examinations of all small companion mammals.’
We advise full physical examinations and regular vaccinations of all Ferrets to help protect against distemper virus.
Small Furries (e.g., Hamsters & Guinea Pigs)
We recommend annual full physical examinations of all small companion mammals.
