Used to have a few when I was little. But they either ran away or the dog got through the crappy cage and killed the thing. Got a new pet Laminge?

It's not real common and even rarer in "city" rabbits. Basically, unless the rabit has been in contact with an infected rabbit or bitten by fleas that are carrying the virus it is very unlikely that mixo will infect a pet rabbit.

mozzies carry myxo too ...but as casper said it's rare. Most bunnies die of starvation or predators from being blind rather than the disease itself.

Mistresses boiling them is still an issue I believe

Well

its official it is Mixamatosis.

Mozzi Bites are the main cause, and the govt has an anitbody for it but refuses to distribute it for fear of ending this disease

Bloody pathetic really

What am I missing? Why is the government afraid of ending the disease?

You also need to think about the Calixis? virus they released a few years ago, to eliminate rabbits. As Bugs would say " ahh whats up Doc ?"
If the pet rabbitt is sterilised, you can get them vaccinated against mixamatosis and calixis virus, in W.A..

Thats something i thought would never happen to a pet Rabbit. But I guess around the area where Magan lives there are hundres of rabbits. So I can see how the mossies didnt have to travel to far. Gary are you going to do the old swap trick. Find one that looks similar and buy it so then the kids dont know the poor fella's sick????

Nope, no hope for it.

97 bucks later the little fella is out of his misery.
Sorry to hear about it :fraz: may the little guy rest in peace. Pathetic excuse from the government for not releasing the antidote. Thye should consider giving it to vets to be released to private owners.

Sorry to hear it Minge, I thought Mixamatosis wasn't too effective any more though....hence the release of the Calici virus.

I feel for ya minge. I too had a pet rabbit and he passed away as roadkill (left the yard trying to find a mate the lonely bugger). He was immunised against the Calici Virus too........RIP "Junior" 1993-1997.
