A note from Dr. Strubberg

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease has now been detected in multiple states. It will not be surprising if it eventually is detected in Missouri. Please be aware of recommended biosecurity measures to protect your patients. If RHD is detected in MO a vaccine will likely become available.

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2 (RHDV2)

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Seroptype 2 (RDHV2) is a highly contagious and potentially fatal disease that affects both domestic and wild rabbits of all ages. This is a foreign animal disease (FAD) as recognized by the OIE (World Organization for Animal Health) and is of high concern in the United States. RHDV2 has been confirmed in several states so far and continues to spread to new states. RHDV2 has not been found in Missouri at this time, but we ask that you remain vigilant and communicate early with rabbit owners.
