 We have been asked about  a cleaning protocol that would prevent rabbits from contracting Myxomatosis or EC from their accommodation, for example in boarding or rescue establishments, and suggest the following (Note - these are UK product names and the same chemicals may have different brand names in your country):

 
 
 
Thoroughly clean the area to remove any scale or residue
 
Use Ark-Klens , which is a benzalkonium chloride disinfectant and as such it should be effective against EC and Myxi, to routinely disinfect the housing.  Periodically use Virkon (as an inorganic peroxygen compound) to kill any other viruses
 
 
 
Note: Other benzalkonium chloride disinfectants and inorganic peroxygen compounds may be available, in addition to those named above.
