Image object code Myxomatosis advanced
This image shows Rio 4 weeks after the reddening of his eyelids was first noted. He was starting with urine scalding on his legs because he would dribble some urine because of the lesions on his genitalia, He couldn't eat his caecotrophs so his anus needed to be cleaned. His genitalia, nose and eyes were sore and he struggled to breathe. He still wanted to eat but could not pick up food on his own. He seemed to be more comfortable on his back and could be hand fed with his favourite foods (fresh greens) in that position. He was starting to lose weight rapidly. The decision to euthanase him was made on the following day. His companion remained well throughout Rio's illness despite developing a circular crusting lesion at the base of her ear.

Image Severe myxomatosis
This rabbit had been adopted by her new owners a few weeks previously. During the pre-anaesthetic check prior to neutering, it became evident that there were wild rabbits with myxomatosis near her new home. She was vaccinated against myxomatosis and RHD immediately and spayed the next day. Unfortunately she developed signs of severe myxomatosis despite vaccination. It is possible that she didn't respond to the vaccination because the was either incubating the disease or the stress of neutering interfered with her immune response.

The eyelids continue to become thickened, inflamed and infected over the next few days before nodular lesions develop especially on the eyelids, nasal planum, face, base of the pinnae and genitalia.
