Recorded On Webinar Recorded On: Monday 25 April

To register for this FREE webinar you need to login or register.

As you may know, over the past year there has been an increasing concern regarding RVHD "new variant 2" becoming a cause of deaths in several outbreaks in the UK. Whilst it has been noted in the UK in research papers (Westcott and Choudhury) for at least 2 years, it has clearly become a significant clinical entity in the past few months.

As rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus strain 2 is now a problem in the UK we believe that getting information out to all rabbit owners quickly and accurately is important.

Join us live with the RWAF Veterinary Advisor Richard Saunders who among others was instrumental in finding a suitable vaccine and developing the policies to allow this to be imported into the UK. Through this RIchard is currently one of most knowledgeable rabbit vets in the UK regarding this disease and is the perfect person to share this information with rabbit owners through this webinar.

This disease is also known as VHD or RHD, the vaccine needs to be imported from Europe so this webinar will also be useful for those in practice in the UK!
