Not a healthy bunny?
4th June 2019

By Robert Ellis

Vets are warning that the needs of rabbits are still ‘grossly misunderstood’.

Rabbit Awareness Week, which runs from June 1-9, is an annual campaign looking at key rabbit health or welfare issues to help the public and professional community better understand their needs.

This year, the theme is vaccination, following a 2018 PDSA report that preventive healthcare in rabbits was a ‘hugely neglected area’. Vets are urging all rabbit owners, and those thinking of getting rabbits, to register them with a clinic and have them vaccinated to protect against various deadly diseases.
