Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus has been detected in domestic rabbits in the state of Georgia. This is a viral infection that is carried by wild rabbits. It is easily transmitted to pet rabbits through contact with contaminated objects. It can be tracked into your home on your shoes. For this reason, we recommend vaccination for all pet rabbits, whether they are housed indoors our outdoors. 

There is now a domestically produced vaccine available. Rabbits should receive two doses 3-4 weeks apart in their initial year of vaccination, and then annually thereafter. 

We require that all rabbits boarding with us be current on the vaccine for RHDV. This means that they should have received both doses at least  2 weeks prior to arrival for boarding if it is their first year of vaccination, or that a period no greater than one year has lapsed between annual boosters.
