NEW VACCINE NEEDED FOR NEW RABBIT VIRUS RHDV2 NOW

This petition had 6,476 supporters


DOMESTIC RABBITS UNDER THREAT;   our bunnies , family pets, rare breeds, show rabbits and meat rabbits, are all dying at a phenomenal rate across Australia.... due to a new virus called RHDV2....... It is now an epidemic in all states including Tasmania... Rabbits are dropping dead with no warning.... The emotional health of people is being badly affected by the lose of valued rabbits, whether they are family pets or livelihood as in the case of meat breeders.... The anguish of parents who have to cope with traumatised children who see all their much loved pets dying in some cases literally in their arms... This is heartbreak on a huge scale as it sweeps across the country leaving stressed and grieving families in its wake... We need a new vaccine, a 3 in 1 to cover the two new strains, RHDV2 (which is not 100 per cent species specific) and for the soon to be released  K5 Product, containing a strain of Chinese1 Va strain O8Q712. It has been shown that the current available vaccine has little efficacy on this strain... We are seeking a 3 in 1 vaccine to be made specifically  to protect our rabbits.  We are fearful that we will lose all or most of our much loved rabbits. Please sign our petition and share it far and wide. Tag your friends, email your friends, we really need your help to  make this happen ... Thankyou. Our bunnies thankyou , our children thankyou.
