Pathogens and parasites lurk everywhere, just waiting for the opportunity to infect your animals! To keep your rabbitry healthy and hopping, utilize a proper biosecurity program to keep out pathogens the animals have not yet been exposed to and to minimize the impact of endemic pathogens.
"Shower in, shower out."
True biosecurity involves people "showering in and showering out". However, most rabbitries are not set up with such facilities. You can go a long way toward minimizing human transmission of pathogens by:
Maintain strict cleanliness in the rabbitry.
Practice animal control.
