In 2010 I had to have 2 rabbits put down who contracted myxomatosis. They were in the early stages of the disease, but it is the most horrible disease designed by man. I was really devasted to have them put down as there is no cure. I now have the remainder rabbits injected every 6 months so they don't get the disease. This is not a quick death it is like you say slow and painful. I think when pet shops sell rabbits they should inform people to get them injected to save the heart ache of them getting the disease. It is about time there was a cure for this disease.
