Animal Care bvba - Vets small and large domestic animals

Just like cats and dogs, rabbits also need their vaccines: the guarantee against infection by certain (mortal) diseases. In this case it primarily regards the typical rabbit disease, myxomatosis, and the more recent (and less known) illness, viral haemorrhagic enteritis (= bloody gastroenteritis).

These 2 disorders are caused by viruses and once the rabbit has been infected, the illnesses are normally fatal. Luckily there are very effective vaccines to protect the animals against these.
