RHD2 Quarantine Period We have been asked to explain the need for a 4 month quarantine period once you have been infected with the RHD2 virus. The initial decision re the length of quarantine was made in 1992 when the RHD1 virus first started to affect stock in the UK. This decision was the result of research studies finding that the virus could survive on exposed surfaces for up to 120 days. Other studies suggest even longer than this. Nothing has been published since to disprove this fact. Moredun Laboratories also carried out research last year, and discovered that any rabbit which was infected during an outbreak, but survived the infection, could continue to shed the virus in their urine and faeces for up to two months. These animals would be a potential risk to any others which they came into contact with. It is essential that any individual who experiences unexplained losses – whether or not they have the animals tested, does not have contact with other breeders or rabbit owners. Some breeders are losing the majority of their stock where none are vaccinated, others all of this years youngsters which have not been vaccinated.
