Rabbit encephalitis is not contagious – what infectious diseases do rabbits have

       Common infectious diseases in rabbits

       1¡¢ Tularemia

       It is also known as Francisella tularensis, which is gram-negative pleomorphic bacteria. Rabbit fever can infect guinea pigs, mice, rabbits, monkeys and squirrels. Sometimes it occurs in domestic animals and wild animals. It often produces rodents and rabbits, and the number of them decreases sharply. It turns out that people can also be infected.

       The mode of transmission can be divided into 1. Transmission by blood sucking arthropod. 2. Direct contact with infected animals. It’s also the most common way people get infected. 3. Oral infection. Transmission among animals can be caused by ingestion of dead rabbits carrying bacteria. 4. Inhalation infection, which rarely occurs.

       Animals usually die of infection, so clinical symptoms are rarely seen. In rabbits and cotton tailed rabbits, loss of appetite, mental retardation and gait instability can be seen before death. Infected rodents and rabbits are easy to catch, so it is easy to cause human infection.

       The best way to prevent rabbit infection is to keep the livestock house clean and reduce the invasion of pathogens.

       2¡¢ Listeriosis

       A type of septicemia that occurs in rabbits. Rabbits die suddenly or miscarry. The pathogen was Listeria monocytogenes, Gram-positive bacteria and normal flora on the skin. It can infect a variety of animals, including humans. The route of infection is spread through contact with contaminated food and drinking water. Urgency can lead to illness or serious illness.

       Rabbits can be seen not eating, depression and weight loss, and finally death. The pregnant female rabbit miscarried. There are also neurological symptoms, ataxia and torticollis. Human infection can cause encephalitis, meningitis, septicemia and abortion in pregnant women.

       3¡¢ Pasteurellosis

       It is caused by Pasteurella multocida. It is a gram-negative bacterium, Brevibacterium bipolar. Pasteurella is distributed all over the world. It is a normal flora in the upper respiratory tract and digestive tract of many animals. It is very sensitive to rabbits and is the most common and troublesome disease. It can cause many types of diseases, including rhinorrhea, local pneumonia, otitis media, conjunctivitis, pyogenesis, abscess and systemic sepsis.

       Clinical symptoms include nasal secretions, nasal congestion, torticollis, eye tears, subcutaneous abscesses and ulcers, * abscess enlargement, subcutaneous swelling, * secretions, infertility, weight loss, and sudden or gradual death. The symptoms of pneumonia were less common in adult rabbits. Acute epidemic pneumonia is common in young rabbits, and septicemia is common in newborn rabbits, while abscess is more common in adult rabbits.

       The main symptom of human is bitten by rabbit, local infection and acute inflammation about an hour later.

       4¡¢ Fungal infection

       Among the mycotic diseases in rabbits, dermatomycosis (ringworm) can be transmitted to humans. Rabbit infection has no pathological changes, and human can be infected by experimental animals or rabbits. Mainly through contact with rabbits or contaminated dragon racks and rabbit houses.

       In 2002, in order to inquire about the reason why rabbits and rabbits got abscess after vaccination, I called around for consultation. Unexpectedly, I called a rabbit vaccine expert from an Academy of Agricultural Sciences. After consulting about the vaccine, the old expert took the initiative to chat with me. I can’t remember why it happened, but I still remember those words. The old expert said: you keep rabbits as pets. Rabbits are good and clean. There is no disease that can be transmitted to people

       Rabbit sick, I used to ask doctors, this will infect people? This doctor is the doctor who sees the most rabbits in Shanghai. Every time the doctor said, “no! Except for some skin diseases, other diseases do not infect people.

       Learn to protect yourself when keeping pets

       Although it is safe as mentioned above, I think it is necessary to emphasize that in addition to taking good care of them and raising them responsibly, parents should learn to protect themselves.

       Just like we often say that biting by rabbits and rabbits does not need to fight rabies, but it does not mean that they are allowed to bite, but also pay attention to safety. Help rabbit clean up, or come into contact with the stool, to pay attention to wash hands. Rabbit skin disease, etc., care should also pay attention to hand washing, and even wear a special apron to do nursing work if necessary. Pay attention to ventilation and environmental hygiene.

       In daily life, we should do our own health work and rabbit health work well, so that our family can support us to raise small animals and love them.

       In addition to some skin diseases of rabbits, other diseases do not infect people. Small rabbits need to control coccidiosis and Escherichia coli. Biting by rabbits and rabbits does not need to fight rabies, but it does not mean that they are allowed to bite, but also pay attention to safety. Help rabbit clean up, or come into contact with the stool, to pay attention to wash hands. Rabbit skin disease, etc., care should also pay attention to hand washing, and even wear a special apron to do nursing work if necessary. Pay attention to ventilation and environmental hygiene.

       thank you.

       Compared with cats and dogs, rabbits have less infectious diseases. However, there are still some. It is recommended to keep them in cages rather than free range. It is relatively isolated. The common ones are as follows:

       1. Coccidiosis.

       The young rabbits of 3 months are easy to suffer from the disease. The rabbits attack quickly and can not be saved without medication within 24 hours. Adult rabbits (6 months) don’t have them.

       2. Toxoplasmosis.

       If you often go out and come into contact with cats and dogs, you will be infected. But it doesn’t infect people, except pregnant women.

       3. Mites, fungi. 5%

       If you come into contact with it, it may be contagious. Therefore, cages should be regularly cleaned and disinfected to keep them dry. Especially hot days, if infected, the first time to smear povidone iodine disinfectant oh.

       4. Pay attention to prevent the rabbit from scratching and biting

       Rabbits and rabbits will have estrus every year, some will be more serious. In addition, when there is oestrus symptoms, the owner should be careful to avoid it. He has been bitten for the first time. Wash the wound with soap and water. If possible, break the cold needle (if not a domestic rabbit) within 24 hours

       5. Fecal bacteria

       Note that it is best not to touch rabbit feces and urine directly by hand, and wear gloves as much as possible. There are bacteria. Rabbits must take forage as staple food, rabbit food as supplementary food, and drink unlimited water at the same time. The scientific and healthy feeding way for young rabbits is to feed a handful of rabbit food and a handful of Alfalfa in the morning and evening, and feed timothy grass more at other times, and drink unlimited cold and white water. Rabbit food and grass are available online.

       Do not feed too much water, vegetables and fruits, easy to loose oh.

       6. Allergy

       If someone in the family is allergic to animal hair, this also needs to be prevented. At least the cage can’t be in that room.

       Hope to help you! Hope to adopt.

       Hello, rabbits don’t usually get sick. If you take it out and be infected by other animals, then there will be infectious diseases! And rabbits are usually coccidiosis, which is not contagious. If you get coccidiosis treatment on the line, is generally only skin disease may be infectious, that also as long as treatment is enough.

       Rabbit common pathogenic bacteria and human pathogens are not the same, as long as we usually pay attention to environmental sanitation, frequent cleaning, attention to disinfection, the basic OK, do not need to worry too much
