All pet rabbits should be vaccinated against Viral Haemorrhagic Disease. This disease is highly contagious and rapidly fatal and is caused by a calicivirus. This virus was introduced into New Zealand several years ago to help control the wild rabbit population. Your rabbit does not need to have direct contact with wild rabbits to catch the disease.
The earliest your rabbit can be vaccinated is ten to twelve weeks of age. Rabbits less than twelve weeks of age will require an initial course of two vaccinations given three to four weeks apart. Rabbits older then twelve weeks will only require a single vaccination. A health check and booster vaccination is recommended annually thereafter in all rabbits.
