If RHVD2 is suspected, any rabbit owner should immediately quarantine their animal or herd and call their state or federal animal health official. (A local veterinarian can assist.)
Owners and veterinarians may also call USDA APHIS Veterinary Services National Center for Animal Health Emergency Management at 1-800-940-6524 for 24/7 assistance.
As with all highly contagious foreign animal diseases, timeliness is critical. The more quickly an outbreak is detected, the more quickly it can be contained and mitigated.
