Nebraska Extension in the Northern Panhandle

Local Interest

RHDV2 is Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus affecting rabbits. It is being found in wild rabbits and then spreading to domestic rabbits. Symptoms include: loss of appetite, lethargy, high fever, seizures, jaundice, bleeding from nose, mouth, or rectum, difficulty breathing, and sudden death. It can be spread orally, through the nasal, or ocular exposure to the virus, or by blood-feeding insects. To help protect your rabbits this summer limit the time they are outside roaming freely in your yard where they could come in contact with wild rabbits or mosquitos. Best practice is to have rabbits housed indoors.
