Vaccination against Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Typ 2
The long anticipated UK licensed vaccine against RHD Typ2 has just arrived in time to get all our rabbit patients vaccinated before the weather is getting warmer.
It is advised to vaccinate all rabbits from the age of 10 weeks and to give a booster 6 months later. As this is a very new vaccine, it should ideally be given apart from the standard combination vaccine against Myxomatosis and RHD Typ 1.
The vaccine is currently only available in 10 and 40 dose vials so that our clinic will start to run dedicated rabbit vaccination sessions against RHD Typ 2.
To book a place for your rabbit please phone us on 01344 841801 or book your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Anaesthesia in Exotics
Non-mammalian aneasthesias can be a challenge, even for experienced vets.
To get an update on anaesthesia and analgesia (pain relief) of birds, reptils, amphibian and aquatic patients, Wolfgang organised as part of his activities with the regional section of BSAVA, the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, an evening meeting for local veterinary surgeons and vet nurses at Leatherhead Gold Club last night.
The speaker was Dan Calvo Carrasco, a r...esident of the European College of Zoological Medicine and a practicing vet at Great Western Exotics in Swindon.
Dan's presentation included updates on all the above mentioned species and also covered invertebrae, like tarantulas.

And the Winner is.......
We have just conducted our "Christmas Card Replacement" Charity draw and the winning charity was one of our favourite charitable causes : THE CINNAMON TRUST . They will receive a cheque from us to start off their useful work in 2014 with a small boost. (There were actually 18 different charities nominated with the Cinnamon Trust, Guide Dogs and the Blue Cross receiving more than 3 votes each). We were also able to send a cheque for £267.57 to the Blue Cross today, which represented money donated to the collection box at the reception and additional private donations.
