Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD1 & RHD2)

 

Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease is caused by a calicivirus, which is highly infectious and virulent affecting rabbits 8 weeks or older, however, rabbits up to the age of 8 weeks can excrete the virus. Morbidity is 70-80% of rabbits in an infected colony within 36 hours of viral entry. Symptoms which may occur are fever, anorexia, depression, cyanosis and haematuria. In the final stages of the disease, rabbits may have epistaxis and develop convulsions.

 

The virus itself is very stable in the environment and may survive for many months. The virus is excreted in almost all secretions and excretions , therefore transmission can be carried out directly through the oral/faecal route, via contaminated feed and other items and biting insects.

 

A PCR test is now available that will test for both strains and also differentiate between RHD1 & RHD2, we require either faeces, EDTA, Oral/Rectal Plain swab or Intestinal Contents.

 

The cost is £49.00 plus VAT with a turnaround time of 3-4 working days.
