What is the HopStart package?

Our HopStart package is an all-inclusive package made for rabbit owners. The first few months with any new pet can be daunting so this package will give you peace of mind while providing your rabbit with premium veterinary care. It is designed for new rabbit owners who are just starting with a baby rabbit or owners of a mature rabbit who just haven’t had time to organise getting all their rabbit vet work done.

What is included in the Rabbit HopStart package?

  • Sterilisation Surgery:
    Sterilisation (desexing) is a very important part of preventative health care in rabbits. A number of problems can occur if your rabbit is left un-sterilised, including reproductive tumours, aggression and unwanted behaviours. In almost all cases sterilised rabbits will bond better with their owners and other rabbits. Our Hopstart package covers the cost of the surgery, a day of hospitalisation, fluid therapy during surgery and all medications including multimodal pain relief. Your rabbit will have one of our vets and a dedicated nurse to monitor them throughout the day, during surgery and on recovery to make sure they are kept comfortable and happy.
  • Calicivirus Vaccination:
    There are a number of viruses in Australia that can harm your rabbit. With the recent introduction of a new and improved vaccine (Filavac®) in Australia, we can now protect rabbits from both the RHDV1 strain and the RHDV2 strain of calicivirus. Our HopStart package includes one or two vaccinations for your rabbit (depending on what is recommended and which HopStart level is selected).

  • Microchipping and Registration:
    Microchip identification is a safe and highly effective means of identifying your pet. Microchips enable lost rabbit to be reunited with their owners. Microchip implantation and lifetime registration on a national database are included in the package.
  • Health and Dental Check:
    Rabbits are extremely good at hiding any illness’ from their owners. Our Hopstart package includes a full health and dental check over by one of our rabbit vets.
  • Nails, Food and Treats:
    Long nails are no fun for anyone! We’ll clip your rabbit’s nails and then send them home with a bag of recommended rabbit food, as well as some yummy treats!

How much does it cost?

  • Females Under 6 Months: $760 for one vaccination, $900 for two vaccinations
  • Females Over 6 Months: $830 for one vaccination, $970 for two vaccinations
