Myxi continues to rear its ugly head around the UK and I doubt it will ever go away. Reports come in daily from members.

 

VHD is the silent killer, but as our leaflet explains it is “Deadly, But Preventable “

 

In the last 4 weeks a confirmed report came in of a death from VHD in Burgess Hill West Sussex and from Burton On Trent and Warwick..  There is an unconfirmed report in the Nottingham area.  

 

The virus can survive for up to 105 days in the environment, but this is at low temperatures , with a sliding scale of downward viral survival duration at higher temperatures.  So this is the best time to have an outbreak.  If your rabbits are not vaccinated, and want your bunnies to live a happy and healthy life, please have them vaccinated

 

RWA/F member and veterinary nurse Laura Slinger who works for the practice that admitted the VHD case told us .    The VHD case was a 6 year old english butterfly, never vaccinated, found her Saturday morning collapsed and twitching - rushed in, bleeding from eyes, vulva and anus, abdomen full of blood - it really has hit home how many people continue to say   'ah vaccination  its not necessary anymore' - it is the first VHD and I think the 4th domestic myxi case in my 12 year career so far, just terrible, really affected me! I'm not as tough as everyone says
