Important Info

Washington rabbit owners – be aware of deadly rabbit virus, RHDV2, reported in British Columbia posted on Washington State Department of Agriculture website.

The good news: The rabbit virus has not occurred in US populations, hooray! Our Spokane rabbit population is healthy and safe.

Central to the mission of Extension is providing accurate information to our clientele. Hence, on occasion, we shall send out various updates on animal health for your information and edification. If there were to be a special concern for our animal populations, we would advise of that separately, based on documented and research-based data and information.
