What Is It?

Vent Disease - rabbit syphilis
Vent Diseaseis a sexually transmitted bacterial infection usually seen in breeding animals. Rabbit syphilis is not zoonotic (communicable from animals to humans). Sores develop around the vent (genital) area and sometimes on the face. Treatment is with antibiotics:most authorities recommend injectable penicillin.

I would ammend the portion that mentions debate ontopicalointments for treatment. There's no debating on that issue -an application of topical ointment cannot cure it.

Here's another good link



Edited, thanks, Pam!

I see that link has a ton of other information, we'll incorporated it into the pages for other appropriate ailments as well (if Naturestee hasn't already done so).
