Abstarc :

Dead fetus is  one kind  of  reproductive disease of rabbit and the cause of the disease is
complicated. The drug poisoning,  toxin, machinery harms and metabolic obstacle made  the fetus stop
growing in the mother's body before birth. The difficult position and the fetus were too big and made
fetus die. Owing to any sort of causes, this was very quick death after birth. Cold condition made the
particularly weak fetus  die in  postpartum  easily. Dies in postpartum do  not  belong to the  scope  of
stillbirth, but since it was difficult to check out,  in most condition the number was accounted within
dead  fetus  rate falsely. Mould feed was major coarse feed, such as peanut hull, potato straw, peanut
straw, dried hey, wheat bran, distillers and the high water content raw materials. Deficiency of nutrition,
such as  vitamin  A,  vitamin E, trace element iodine and selenium etc, could cause fetus  dead.
Inoculation, keeping rabbits in a sanitary condition, having the pharmaceutical preventions and getting
rid  of illness are important for the rabbits to keep  from the dead fetus.  [Nature and Science.
