Warning for local rabbit owners
Mira Mar Vets has recently received notification from the City of Albany that they are planning to release a new strain of rabbit Calicivirus into the wild rabbit population near Emu Point in late spring.
The virus is specific to the European rabbit and does not pose a risk to humans, other domestic animals or native wildlife. It WILL however, affect PET RABBITS, but the good news is that the current calicivirus vaccination is effective against this strain of the disease.
If you have any questions about the virus, the vaccine or your pet rabbit, please visit the following websites, or call the clinic on 98415422.
