RHD - Prevention

May 2021 was a horrible month for Happy Tails Flemish Giant Rabbitry. Our Rabbitry was contaminated by Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease, RHD as revealed by necropsy results from UC Davis Veterinarian Lab. Our heart was broken as we had many losses.  The following link contains a list of Veterinarians by State that offer the RHD vaccination.

We are determine to provide our Flemish with the best possible chance against this virus and you with the healthiest new family member that's possible. Hence, we are making the following changes:

Bio Security - to prevent all insects, rodents, and other animals from possibly contaminating our Rabbitry, the following measures are being implemented.

           * Complete Sanitation of the Rabbitry                                                                                                                         * Bunny House                                                                                                                                                     * Bunny Run                                                                                                                                            * Install Mosquito/Fly proof screening                                                                                                                           * Screen Doors                                                                                                                                                     * Rescreen the Bunny Run                                                                                                                                 * Rescreen the Bunny Condos                                                                                                              * Install a Air Purifier/Exchange System                                                                                                          * No rabbits on the ground

Medical - to provide my Flemish with the best chances to fight RHD, the following policies have been implemented.

         * All current rabbits will be vaccinated against RHD                                                                                     * All future rabbits will be vaccinated against RHD                                                                                       * All Kits will be vaccinated against RHD prior to leaving HTFGR at no additional cost
