Rabbits and Myxomatosis

If you have found a rabbit, please read this very carefully.
Myxomatosis is very contagious and almost always fatal. We once had a rabbit suffering from myxomatosis brought to our centre and all our pet rabbits caught it, despite being vaccinated. It was only the vaccination which made their symptoms less severe that saved their lives, but it took 5 months of total nursing care and a large vet bill to save them.
If you suspect your rabbit has myxomatosis please do not bring it to our door. If you are able to ring ahead we will meet you outside and check it over.
If the rabbit does have myxomatosis we will not take it in. The only thing for it is euthanasia, so please take it to the nearest vet where it can be put out of its terrible suffering as soon as possible.
