Rabbit Vaccination available in Adelaide
Rabbits are vaccinated against the Rabbit Calicivirus Disease or RCD.
Rabbit kits (baby rabbits are known as 'kits') recieve their first
RCD vaccination usually as soon as you bring your new kit home. If the
kit is under 10 weeks of age, it will need a booster RCD vaccination 4
weeks later, and then annually.
Therefore, most people wait until their young rabbit is 10 to 12
weeks old before having its first vaccination as a 4 week booster is not
required; only yearly vaccinations thereafter.
In Australia, it is illegal to vaccinate against myxomatosis virus,
as the vaccine is a form of live virus that would potentially spread to
the wild rabbit population and spread immunity against this disease.
