COVID 19 UPDATE – We have started inviting clients back into the practice however in order to maintain social distancing we are allowing just 4 clients/visitors in, at any one time. When numbers are reached, you may be offered a pager/buzzer as an alternative and asked to wait outside. Face coverings are required and if you do not have your own, they can be purchased from us. Do let us know if you suffer from any conditions that makes you exempt from wearing one.
We kindly request only one member of the family attends, where possible and aim to get for us at the correct time for your appointment to avoid ongoing delays.
Our standard opening hours are back to normal and can be found here
DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE DEMONSTRATING CLINICAL SIGNS OF COVID-19! Thank you once again for your patience.
We have some very exciting news! There is a brand-new rabbit vaccine that we now have in stock. Previously due to product limitations, all bunnies needed to have two vaccinations per year, at least 2 weeks apart, to cover for myxomatosis, RHD1 and RHD2. The new vaccine only requires one annual vaccination and protects against all 3 diseases! We are very excited about this new product and the impact it will have reducing stress on our rabbit patients. There is no complicated protocol to switch over to this new vaccine; it is compatible with our previous vaccines, so the switch will just be made at your next appointment.
Those of you on our Rabbit Health Plan will continue to have your included six-month complimentary health check, but your bunnies just won’t need an injection at that visit!
The vaccine can be given from 5 weeks of age but we recommend postponing their first vaccination, if possible, until 7 weeks old. This is to make sure their immunity is not reduced by protective factors in their mother’s milk.
If you would like to get your rabbit’s vaccines up to date or speak to us for further advice on this topic, give us a call on 01458 832972.
