It’s that time of year again! Fondly known as ‘RAW’, Rabbit Awareness Week is being run nationwide from Saturday 1st June – Sunday 9th June 2019, sponsored by Burgess.
As a practice, we have a long-standing reputation for treating rabbits and various other ‘exotic’ species. Over the years the number of pet rabbits in the UK has grown significantly, and every week we are welcoming more new patients and clients into our practices.
Battle Flatts Stamford Bridge is also proud to announce they have been awarded the GOLD award for being a Rabbit Friendly Practice – we are now one of only 12 Gold practices in the UK! As part of this, we are joining other practices in RAW’s initiative to ensure all rabbits are vaccinated against both Myxomatosis (Myxy) and Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease virus (RHDV). This includes the highly infectious RHDV-2 strain which has quickly become one of the highest causes of sudden death in domestic rabbits.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding RHDV-2 or your rabbits’ general health, please contact any of our four branches to book an appointment. Vaccinations are available at all branches too!
