Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is a highly dangerous illness that affects rabbits. The virus belongs to the calicivirus family. It can survive in an environment for as long as 3.5 months and is resilient to extreme temperatures. The virus spreads easily between rabbits and from contaminated materials such as carcasses, surfaces, food, water, and hay. Once a rabbit gets infected, they often die within just 12-36 hours of exposure, often without ever showing any symptoms. If symptoms do appear, they may include fever, loss of appetite, tiredness, muscle spasms, trouble breathing, blue lips, or bleeding from the mouth and nose. Contact with RHDV is almost always fatal for rabbits. We strongly recommend that all rabbit owners get their rabbits vaccinated against this deadly virus once a year. To make it easier for you to protect your rabbits, we partner with our trusted Veterinary Clinics to organize RHDV vaccination clinics throughout the year. This virus is not to be taken lightly. It has devastated entire rabbit rescues and colonies worldwide. Let’s work together to ensure the safety and well-being of our beloved furry friends.


We love bunnies and we offer a wide range of services to meet their needs
