CCAS wants to advise all rabbit owners that Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV), a highly infectious and deadly disease of rabbits, has been detected in Southern California. There is significant concern that this virus will rapidly make its way to Northern California. We are providing the following links that give further information on this disease and steps to take to ensure you protect your pet rabbit. (RHDV is infectious to wild and domestic rabbits only. It is not infectious to people or other animals).
CCAS is currently limiting intake of rabbits to sick and injured animals as we develop a plan to ensure we can appropriately and safely quarantine and house healthy rabbits.
