Rabbits are becoming an increasingly popular companion animal throughout Australia, partly due to their endearing, unique and loving nature.

Encephalitozoon cuniculi (ECUN) is a common and potentially deadly pathogen of rabbits which has prompted growing concern and heightened demand for regular screening.  In addition to our standard qualitative reporting, we now offer titre testing for rabbits seropositive for IgG against ECUN.
