Find me on Facebook!!

Myxomatosis is a horrendous disease that unfortunately affects both wild and pet rabbits,

so make sure your rabbit is vaccinated against this deadly disease!

 

There is now a new vaccine which combines the old separate
myxomatosis and VHD vaccination, and lasts for a whole year!

It can be used from five weeks of age - if you would like a baby you have reserved to be vaccinated before you collect them, this can be arranged through my vet.  

 

The cost is £33.00 per rabbit including full health check, or £21.00 with

basic health check. This cost will be added to the purchase price, and you will receive a vaccination certificate to take away with you as a reminder of when the booster is due.

 

Please let me know if you would like me to do this for your own peace of mind.

 

It’s great news that a new vaccine has been produced that can be given at the same time as the VHD vaccine, and which offers 12 months protection against myxomatosis.

 

All of my rabbits have been given the new vaccine with no side effects whatsoever.

MYXOMATOSIS WARNING - PLEASE READ!!

 

To read about the terrible adverse reactions that

several of my rabbits experienced in 2008 after being

injected with the Cylap VHD vaccination,

please see the separate page called Cylap reaction.

 

I have also heard the sad news that a rabbit has now died following awful complications after receiving the Cylap VHD vaccine.

 

Please see the Cylap reaction page.

 

I am pleased that there is now a combined

VHD and myxomatosis vaccine, my rabbits have all been

receiving it since 2012 with no side effects whatsoever.

Please let me know if you are interested in any babies from these litters!
 

All rabbits leave here from the age of ten weeks onwards

with a care sheet, supply of food

and a lifetime of after-care advice (should you need it).
 

Please contact me if you are interested!

New strain of Viral Haemmorhagic Disease in the UK

 

Since around 2015 there has been a new strain in the UK, called VHD2 or RHD2, the combined myxomatosis/VHD vaccine only offers protection for around 4 months, but in 2016 a new vaccine was imported from Europe. The one that my vets obtained is called Filavac, it is given once a year, in addition to the combined vaccine for myxomatosis and VHD (strain 1).

Babies have arrived from:

 

Snowdrop and Barney - three babies born on 17th March!

 

Echo and Barney - two babies born on 18th March!

 

Eclipse and Zeus - one blue spotted baby arrived 2 days late on 11th April!

 

Please contact me if you are interested in any of these babies!
They can be reserved now!

Exhibition rabbits are required to wear a metal ring on one of their hind legs for the purposes of registration and identification. These rings come in different sizes according to the breed of rabbit and are purchased from the British Rabbit Council.

 

For many decades the size for English rabbits was a D size.

From the beginning of 2016 this size was increased to an E size, despite members of the National English Rabbit Club voting against this change in a ballot some years earlier.

 

The change was brought in anyway and unfortunately resulted in a broken leg in Hickory, one of my rabbits, due to the fact it was able to slide down onto the lower part of the leg and get stuck there. Hickory is now fine, but had to undergo surgery and many weeks of restricted space. The same has also happened to other English rabbits belonging to other breeders.

 

If you show English rabbits please be aware of the fact that this could occur. Please contact me if you require any further

information on what happened.
