Huge response to protect and prevent campaign

Burgess Pet Care, the organisers of Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW), has announced today that this year's Protect and Prevent campaign has been the most successful RAW campaign yet.

Over 5 000 campaign packs were downloaded from the Rabbit Awareness Week website and feedback from veterinary practices taking part in RAW has shown an increase in the number of RVHD2 vaccines being administered to rabbits.

Rabbit Awareness Week has been helping to improve the lives of pet rabbits in the UK for 13 years. This year's Protect and Prevent campaign urged rabbit owners to get their rabbits vaccinated, following the continued outbreak of the latest deadly strain of rabbit viral haemorrhagic disease (RVHD2).

This year's campaign was supported by the RSPCA, PDSA, Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund (RWAF), Wood Green the Animals Charity and Blue Cross.
