New vaccine update

We have heard from a lot of vets in the past week who wanted to know how to order the new vaccine.This is going to mean that there should be a reasonable spread across the country of vets who are stocking it. However, many vets will simply not see enough rabbits to make it a commercially viable decision to order it in. If your vet does not stock it it's worth phoning around to find out who has it. Please make sure that if you do this, both vets in question know that your rabbit is under the care of 2 separate vets. This is important for good communication regarding any health issues, and in terms of timing the VHD2 vaccines appropriately with their existing Nobivac Myxo-RHD.

  1. My vet says that, despite ordering mid Jan, he has not been able to get hold of any from the vaccine manufacturer due to demand. Is this a common problem? How do we best protect our rabbits meanwhile?
    Also, what are the issues regard timing VHD2 with the normal, annual, vaccination that rabbits receive for VHD and Myxi?
