We recommend that rabbits in Farnham are vaccinated against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD).
Previously this would have been administered through two separate injections, however, our new rabbit vaccine at Cathcart and Winn Vets means that your pet can be protected against myxomatosis and both strains of VHD with just a single injection.
