Initial worm, mite and mosquito protection treatment $50

Average costs of a rabbit's vet treatment:
Rabbits are susceptible to a virus called myxomatosis. It is carried by fleas and mosquitoes. There is a vaccine but the Australian Government won't allow vets to have it to vaccinate and protect pet rabbits. If a rabbit contracts myxomatosis it should be put to sleep as it's a painful dying process and there is no cure.
