Symptoms RHD-1 and RHD-2
A rabbit with RHD can die suddenly, without any prior symptoms. In a milder form of the infection, the rabbit is lethargic, short of breath, stops eating and has a fever. In addition, the rabbit may have diarrhea and bloody nasal discharge. The animal often dies from internal bleeding. Contrary to the original RHD virus, the variant RHD-2 can also cause death in hares.
There is no treatment for the diseases. Myxomatosis and RHD are prevented with a vaccination. It is also important to maintain good hygiene. Do not pick grass or dandelions where wild rabbits are also present and avoid contact with infected animals or manure from infected animals.
