    Diseases On this page I will place an 'index' for all of the diseases known to rabbits. They will be in groups, and the diseases in the groups will be going in alphabetical order. In each disease I will try and include a description, cause(s), symptoms, and treatment. For a free downloadable/printable book on diseases and parasites go here. Index. Rabbits are vaccinated against Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (previously known as Rabbit Calicivirus) from 4 weeks of age and then every 6 months to maintain immunity throughout life. Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus and Myxomatosis are diseases that have been introduced in Australia to help control the wild rabbit population.

    Control. In order to avoid rabbit diseases, homeowners should construct fences around their gardens and use tree guards to keep the pests at bay. Trutech’s wildlife experts can help homeowners limit their exposure to illness through their efficient, humane removal methods. Parasites of rabbits. Wild rabbits are host to a variety of parasites that can be transmitted to domestic rabbits. The type and species of parasite varies throughout the world and it is beyond the scope of this book to describe them all. A detailed, illustrated description is given by Hofing and Kraus ().

    Ringworm affects pets like dogs, cats, and rabbits, as well as farm animals like cows, sheep, goats, and pigs. Who is at risk: Anyone can get ringworm. Signs in farm animals: Affected animals typically have small areas of hair loss around their ears, face or legs with scaly or crusty skin. Some animals carrying ringworm will not have any signs.   This is a potentially fatal disease for rabbits. It is caused by parasites and spread through feces. It is commonly found in rabbits who are bred in large groups. Symptoms of coccidiosis include diarrhea, lack of appetite and bloating. There are different strains of this disease. It usually affects rabbits at ages four to sixmonths.

PARASITIC DISEASES Ear Mange (Ear Canker) Infestation of the inner surface of the ear by ear mites (Psarptes spp.

Prevention & Control. To prevent the spread of rabbit. The rabbits are extremely pruritic, and the parasites are difficult to eliminate on domestic rabbits. The condition is extremely contagious and can be transmitted to people.

Fleas of the Ctenocephalides felis, C canis, and Pulex irritans species can affect rabbits. Rabbits do not suffer from roundworm or tapeworm infections like dogs and cats.

However, rabbits can be infected with a parasite called Encephalitzoon cuniculi (li). E cuniculi can cause kidney disease, neurological disease and eye disease.

The parasite is spread through contamination of food and water with infected urine. Encephalitozoonosis in Rabbits. Encephalitozoonosis is an infection caused by the parasite Encephalitozoon is well known in the rabbit community, and is also known to occasionally infect mice, guinea pigs, hamsters, dogs, cats, primates, and even immune compromised humans (e.g., those with HIV or cancer).

Schmidt briefly discusses the principal helminthic parasites of rabbits, intestinal nematodes, lungworms, liver-fluke and cysticerci, the life-history of each, and suitable methods of control. Coccidiosis is also mentioned.

B.G.P. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) 1 K5 will be released nationally in the first week of March This virus is being released as a biocontrol measure to manage wild European rabbits. In most adult rabbits the disease progresses rapidly from fever and lethargy to sudden death within hours of infection.

The handbook is intended as a reference manual for rabbit farmers, and includes sections on suitable environment and nutrition for commercial production, and the prevention, control and eradication of diseases. The diseases covered are classified according to their major cause-bacterial, fungal, viral, nutritional, hereditary and miscellaneous, including poisoning, tumours.

Rabbits that are housed outdoors, captured from wild populations or that are purchased from a pet store may carry zoonotic diseases. Zoonotic diseases specifically associated with rabbits include pasteurellosis, ringworm, mycobacteriosis, cryptosporidiosis and external parasites.

Rabbits can transmit bacteria through bites and scratches.
