New Strain of Rabbit Calicivirus
Calicivirus is a known fatal disease of rabbits spread by mosquitos and can cause death in unvaccinated adults and young kittens. While at this present time we have access to a calicivirus vaccination, it has less protection against the newer strain that has been discovered in Canberra in 2015 (RHDV2). Despite this, The Australian Veterinary Association recommends that we continue to use the vaccine because of its cross-protective benefits, in adults (yearly), young kittens ( 4, 8, and 12 weeks, then yearly) and 6 monthly for breeding adults.
We also advise to take all possible precautions to limit exposure to mosquitos and their breeding habitats, keeping them indoors during summer/wet weather, using netting and appropriate safe repellents.
Please call the clinic to speak with our staff about any further questions.
Greencross Werribee is excited to welcome Dr Marianne Hevern who will be our New Graduate Vet on placement for 2016, check out her staff bio here, and Dr Chris Mackay who is our ongoing locum veterinarian with over 30 years experience in Veterinary Medicine.
