Filavac makes top 10 SIC in last two quarters

Between 1st April 2016 and 30th September 2016, according to the Veterinary Medicine Directorate newsletter "MAVIS" 2025 Special Import Certificates were issued for "Filavac". Combining this with the results of an FOI request in July, showing how many doses were requested for each application, we estimate that somewhere around 72,500 rabbits may have been vaccinated to date. This is down to the tireless efforts of Rabbit owners in requesting this vaccine from their vets, those owners and others who have catalogued cases of RHD2 and made that information available to inform decision making, and vets, vet nurses and practice managers who have organised SICs, importing, and vaccine clinics for their practice. We are also eternally grateful to Dr Richard Saunders for making this process possible in the first place by establishing the demand for the vaccine and setting it up with the VMD, and the veterinary wholesalers for making the vaccine available. Whilst its always important to note that no vaccine offers 100% protection, and that there are occasional side-effects to vaccination, we are very pleased that its been possible to offer the best possible protection to the UK's rabbits over the past few months.

  1. If only we had this vaccine to protect our pet rabbits in Australia. We have over 160 in our care at The Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary. See our blog at www.rabbitsanctuary.com.au
