Pet rabbits should be vaccinated routinely against both rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) and myxomatosis. Both these viral diseases are widespread and endemic in wild rabbits in the United Kingdom. They are likely to prove fatal in unprotected rabbits if they are exposed.
We recommend that these vaccines are given from 6 weeks of age. We also recommend an annual booster vaccination to protect against these diseases.
Ferrets are very susceptible to Canine Distemper. We recommend that they are protected from this disease by vaccination from 8 weeks of age with a booster at 14 weeks of age.
We recommend that an annual booster vaccination is given to protect against this disease.
