We strongly recommend vaccinating pet rabbits, including house bunnies, against two main highly infectious diseases that affect rabbits. Your vet will give your pet a full health check and be able to offer advice on everything from diet to parasite control.

The diseases we vaccinate rabbits against are:


A viral infection that is spread by insect bites. The signs include swelling of the eyelids, nose and genitals and is often fatal. We recommend booster vaccinations every 12 months.

Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD) Strain 1

A viral infection which causes internal bleeding and death. It can kill rabbits very quickly and without any warning. House rabbits are equally at risk of this infection. Annual boosters are required to maintain strong immunity.

Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (RHV2) Strain 2
This is a very recently emerging strain of Viral Haemorrhagic diarrhoea. This can cause sudden death and severe diarrhoea also but the signs are more vauge than strain 1. More information can be found under the "news" tab.

Vaccinations against VHD1 and Myxomatosis are given togther, but the RHV2 vaccine must be given two weeks apart from this. Please be aware that the RHV2 vaccination needs to be specially imported, so please call in advance to check that we have it in stock for your visit.

Please call your local Nine Mile clinic for more information and to book a vaccination appointment today.
