Sunday Selfies

This is me up at my favourite woods But I am sad because I won’t be able to go there for a while.In Fact I won’t be going anywhere there are wild rabbits for a while because Rabbit Viral Hemorrhagic Disease type 2 has finally made it’s way to the southwest of England with confirmed case in a pet bunny at a place called Teignmouth here in Devon.I am Vaccinated for the original type 1 version and Myxomatosis but not the new mutation of RVHD type 2.Mummy say’s our vet has it on order but it has to come from Germany under Special Licence as it is not yet offically approved for use in the UK but it is currently going through the process for UK approval but it takes time.But mummy has said when the vet gets it in I will be vaccinated but it is going to be a little wait and expensive could be as much as £100 UK pounds but the vet won’t know exactly till it comes in and the could be a couple of months as they have only ordered a small amount.The more Vets order the cheaper it is but as the vets don’t know who many bunny owners will want the new Vaccine they don’t want to comit to the larger dose packs because it only keeps for a certain length of time.We will keep you posted.

  1. Speedy, safety first! Sorry about your woods, that’s a bummer. My Nama is becoming very upset about the cost of pet meds. She says big pharma is holding all pet owners hostage. We Scotties are prone to Addison’s, Cushings and other evil diseases that are very expensive to treat.

    • yes those are nasty I have lost some good pals to those.With these viruses the only treatment is vaccination because there is no cure or treatment they are that deadly,xx Speedy

  2. That is very scary Speedy. I agree, you should stay out of wild places until you are fully protected. That is just terrible something so necessary is going to be so expensive.
