I have decided to now vaccinate all our rabbits against RHD2, so every rabbit will be protected against this new but deadly disease.  The vaccine will be given 2 weeks after the usual combined vaccination, but as this has raised our costs considerably I have reluctantly had to increase the adoption fee from £45 each to £60, which is still an excellent price considering each rabbit is neutered, vaccinated against 3 diseases, and checked for dental disease and temperament.  It also appears that the recommended booster is every 6 months rather than annually, but as this is a new vaccine things will likely change quickly so I will post any updates on the situation on the website as and when I get to hear about them.

I thought I would share a note I received a few days ago from 6 year old Amelie Nice and her sister, who between them managed to raise £6.50 in a conker sale, with the proceeds going to CottonTails – an excellent effort indeed, well done girls!  Apparently the girls love rabbits so I have told them it will buy some nice fresh vegetables for our current inmates who will really appreciate it.
