RABBITS

Rabbits are vaccinated against calicivirus at 10 – 12 weeks of age and then every 12 months to maintain immunity throughout life.

Calicivirus and Myxomatosis are diseases that have been introduced in Australia to help control the wild rabbit population. Whilst there are no vaccines available to prevent Myxomatosis, rabbits should be vaccinated against calicivirus which is spread by insects.

 

FERRETS

We recommend vaccinations at 8-10 weeks of age the followed up 4 weeks later and then every 12 months to maintain immunity throughout life.
