The VHD (also known as RHD) vaccine can be administered at home, but you're likely going to have some trouble finding it without a prescription. If your vet has already examined your rabbit(s) and is willing to authorize the purchase of the vaccines, this can be done online and shipped to your home with syringes to administer the vaccine to your rabbit or rabbits. Often it's cheaper, however, to have an examination performed as well as the vaccine since so many steps and a wide range of cost is required to obtain the vaccine itself.

I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
