Rabbits and Ferrets are special pet's with unique needs and our vet's love nothing more than visits from these fuzzy critters.
Rabbits are vaccinated against calicivirus at 10 - 12 weeks of age and then every 12 months to maintain immunity throughout life. Calicivirus and Myxomatosis are diseases that have been introduced in Australia to help control the wild rabbit population. Whilst there are no vaccines available to prevent myxomatosis, rabbits should be vaccinated against calicivirus which is spread by insects.
Recently a re-release of calivirus south of Perth makes vaccinating your bunny even more important
Ferrets are lively and very curious little creatures that love nothing more than to play and get into mischief. Vaccination against distemper is very important. It is recommended they receive two distemper vaccinations when less than 12 weeks of age then annually. This comes as the C3 vaccination typically given to dogs.
