This is a report which details a national study in New Zealand of public perceptions and attitudes to rabbit calicivirus (RCD) - now called rabbit haemorrhagic disease Public attitudes to rabbit calicivirus disease in New Zealand book.

Since its illegal introduction inrabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) virus has spread throughout New Zealand and greatly reduced rabbit populations in many regions.

However, rabbit numbers in some areas are now recovering as an increasing proportion of rabbits have developed protective antibodies against the disease. Rabbit hemorrhagic disease (RHD), also known as viral hemorrhagic disease (VHD), is a highly infectious and lethal form of viral hepatitis that affects European viral strains also affect hares and cottontail rabbits.

Mortality rates generally range from 70 to percent. The disease is caused by strains of rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV), a lagovirus in the family Family: Caliciviridae. Four years after the release of Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) in New Zealand, we conducted a mail survey of farmers to ascertain their attitudes and practices about rabbit control.

Rabbit calicivirus, also known as viral hemorrhagic disease, is a reportable disease in some parts of the world. This highly infectious disease was first reported in in the People's Republic of China, from here it was spread to Mexico City inhowever was considered eradicated by More than one calicivirus.

There are several strains of rabbit calicivirus (also known as Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)) in New Zealand: RHDV1 is widespread. RHDV1 K5 was introduced here in March (to control wild rabbits). RHDV2 was detected in wild rabbit samples collected in   RHDV1 K5 is not a new virus.

It is a Korean strain of the existing RHDV1 virus already widespread in New Zealand and only affects the European rabbit. RHDV1 K5 was selected for release because it can better overcome the protective effects of the benign calicivirus (RCA-A1), which occurs naturally in wild rabbit populations in New Zealand.

Outbreaks of rabbit calicivirus disease have since occurred in Australia (), New Zealand (), and Cuba ().

Inas a result of a laboratory accident in southern Australia, the virus escaped from quarantine and killed 10 million rabbits in 8 wk. Rabbit calicivirus disease was confirmed in a group of 27 rabbits in Iowa in April. In late August RHD was found to be killing rabbits in the Cromwell area of Central Otago, and the disease quickly spread through the district and into the Mackenzie Country.

It has since spread throughout New Zealand. At first the disease was very effective in reducing rabbit numbers in most parts of the country. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is a calicivirus of the genus Lagovirus that causes rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) in adult European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus).

First described in China inthe virus rapidly spread worldwide and is nowadays considered as endemic in several countries. In Australia and New Zealand where rabbits are pests, RHDV was purposely. Ratcliffe ). Australia and New Zealand have also recently released a new agent, rabbit haemorrhagic disease, known as rabbit calicivirus disease (RCD) in Australia and New Zealand, to control rabbits.

Rabbit calicivirus has been active in Australia since late and New Zealand since mid, with variable effects on rabbit populations. Outside the Soviet Union, the most important industrial breeds are those raised for fur and meat or for the meat alone. These include New Zealand White, the Giant Chinchilla, the Belgian Hare, the Blue Beveren, the Dutch Rabbit, the California, the Flemish Giant, the New Zealand Red, and the Champagne.

Rabbits are a major vertebrate pest in New Zealand. An application has been made recently to import and release in New Zealand the biological control agent Rabbit Calicivirus Disease (RCD). Rabbit hemorrhagic disease is endemic in Australia, New Zealand, Cuba, parts of Asia and Africa, and most of Europe.

The viral subtypes circulating in each region can differ. As ofRHDV2 has been found in a number of European countries and Australia. RHDV is not thought to be established in North. Rabbit calicivirus and vaccination.

Rabbit calicivirus disease (RCD), also known as haemorrhagic viral disease (RHVD), is a disease that kills rabbits. It was illegally introduced into New Zealand in Thirty to eighty percent of animals exposed to the virus will develop the disease.

A new strain of the rabbit calicivirus has been confirmed in a single wild rabbit found on a Marlborough farm. The strain – called RHDV2 – is widespread in Europe and Australia, but this is the first time it has been found in New Zealand, says MPI response manager John Brightwell. "The virus affects rabbits and the European hare.

Two wild rabbits found on a farm near Rotorua have tested positive for a new strain of the calicivirus disease in the Bay of Plenty. The test on rabbits found on a Rotoehu farm was the second time.

The background to calicivirus in Canberra. The official name of the virus is Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) but it’s more commonly known as a variety of rabbit calicivirus.

And it’s fatal to rabbits that don’t have immunity. Rabbit calicivirus has a chequered history in : Tammy Ven Dange. Rabbit calicivirus update. MLA Citation. Australia and New Zealand Rabbit Calicivirus Disease Program. Rabbit calicivirus update / Australia and New Zealand Rabbit Calicivirus Disease Program Australian/Harvard Citation.

Australia and New Zealand Rabbit Calicivirus Disease Program. Rabbit calicivirus update / Australia and New. The decline in rabbit populations in New Zealand following the release of the rabbit calicivirus disease led to an increase in the: European Hare.

Because over 90% of the invertebrate pests in New Zealand are aliens, new legislation was enacted in called the: Biosecurity Act. A new strain of virus could help New Zealand farmers slash rabbit numbers by up to 30 per cent.

The virus, called RHDV1-K5, is a Korean strain of the lethal calicivirus already present in New Zealand that causes rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD).Rabbit Calicivirus. In NSW, Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV), a kind of calicivirus, is released regularly to keep the wild rabbit population low.

This virus can affect your pet rabbit and it is important that your pet is vaccinated against it.Rabbit Calici Virus: by Barbara Eddy, Veterinary Nurse.

Rabbit Calicivirus Disease is a contagious disease that is deadly to rabbits. It was released in Otago in and has now been reported in most areas in both the North Island and South Island in New Zealand.
