Hello,
I have a outdoor pet rabbit that has gotten myxomatosis a year ago (she was vaccinated) but after a long of treatment she survived and now is healthy. Of course i vaccinated her again but after previous incident i'm worried about her as this time of year there are many mosquitos flying near her hutch in the evening. Did she get immune to myxo after recovering from it? And how can i keep the mosquitos away from her? She's constantly flapping her ears to get rid of them (no ear mites, checked it already!)

Yes she probably is immune, but I'd double check that with your vet.

Not sure where you are but there may be some kind of spray you can use to deter mosquitoes, such as the ones used to prevent flystrike.
