Infectious Disease in Rabbits
eCPD Tutorial with Claire Speight
Many diseases which affect rabbits can be passed onto other rabbits and also humans. Being able to recognise and treat these diseases and know how to prevent them is important. This lecture covers myxomatosis, RVHD1 and RVHD2, ear mites, Cheyletiella and Pasteurella. Clinical signs and treatments are discussed as well as a timeline of myxomatosis and vaccinations for myxomatosis, RVHD1 and RVHD2. There has been an update in rabbit vaccinations as of May 2020, and there is an additional short tutorial to cover this recent information.
