All rabbit exhibitions banned in Oklahoma for ninety days
June 26, 2020
Oklahoma State Veterinarian, Dr. Rod Hall, has banned all rabbit exhibitions in the state until Sept. 24, to allow time to assess the scope and range of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHD) in the region surrounding Oklahoma.
“It is essential to stop commingling of rabbits until we have a better understanding of the disease prevalence and better tools to prevent disease transmission,” said Dr. Hall in the ban released this morning. “I encourage all owners and breeders of pet, show and meat production rabbits to immediately institute strict biosecurity to protect your rabbits.”
