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 weeks of age. A health check and booster vaccination is recommended annually thereafter in all rabbits.
