Free Rabbit Health Checks Rabbit Awareness Week begins on 15th

Free Rabbit Health Checks
Rabbit Awareness Week begins on 15th September this year and Marske Vets will be
showing its support by offering free rabbit health checks throughout the week!
This year the RAW campaign is focusing on rabbit vaccinations, to prevent and protect
Britain’s most popular small pet from deadly diseases. Marske Vets will be offering free
consultations to all rabbit owners and are also giving out goodie bags if you take your rabbit
in for a check-up.
We are opening our doors to the rabbit owning community this week, to improve the health
of the town’s bunnies. The team at the surgery are on hand to offer advice about problems
you might be experiencing and also offer information about the vaccinations available, to
protect your rabbit from preventable infections
Matt Brash, TV vet and RAW supporter, said: “This September, the focus is on raising
awareness of rabbits’ vaccination needs, by encouraging owners to consider prevention
rather than the cure. Rabbits are prone to catching diseases such as Myxomatosis and even
VHD. The later has no cure once a rabbit is infected.
“There seems to be confusion about whether or not rabbits need to see a vet. The answer is
undoubtedly. With the support of the veterinary community and the pet retail sector, our
primary aim for Rabbit Awareness Week is to educate owners on responsible rabbit
ownership, such as registering with a vet for vaccinations, and improve the wellbeing of
Britain’s third most popular pet.”
