Rabbit Disease in Minnesota

Hello all, we're going to interrupt your Sunday Cinnamon with a report of a small but serious outbreak of a rabbit disease (Rabbit ViralHemorrhagic Disease (RVHD)) in our home state of Minnesota, specifically Pine County.

You can find out more information on the outbreak here. Again, this is a small outbreak, but given its contagious nature, we thought it best to get the word out.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. DR will return tomorrow.

Thanks for getting the word out ... I hope it is contained. Give Cinnamon a special home-made pancake. No take-out.

Lots of love going out to all the Minnesota bunnies. Hug your little ones tight and keep them safe.

I hope the bunnies will be ok, or at least, that not many bunnies will be affected by this.

I disapprove of bunnies getting ill. :-(

Yes, VHD is a hideous disease that is almost always fatal. Here in the UK you can vaccinate against it, but the US doesn't allow vaccination for it, as it's not a 'native disease' Sounds a bit stupid to me! Why not let pet owners protect their pets!!

Lots of vibes that it was contained and that no more buns get ill.
