Rabbit husbandry has vast potential to improve the socio-economic status of the rural poor and to provide food security in terms of low cost animal protein. The total rabbit population of the country is about a million. Rabbit is highly prolific. Meat production in India is reported to be about 20 thousand tonnes/ year. Angora wool production is around 30 tonnes annually. Apart from providing wool and meat, Rabbits provide income from sale of kits, pelt and manure. Introduction of high yielding strains and varieties of rabbits, led to high susceptibility to many diseases among rabbit population. The rabbit farms are usually located in suburban or rural areas, where the immediate expert veterinary care is rarely available. The major loss due to mortality of rabbits is caused by delayed diagnosis and treatment. Further the access to knowledge on diseases, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options, for the farming fraternity is limited. Raising awareness of these activities, an attempt has been made to develop a web based disease diagnosis database for rabbit farmers, field veterinarians, students, rabbit users, pharmacists and those involved in rabbit farming. Detailed description for symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, prevention etc. for each disease were collected and digitalized in suitable retrieval platform. With bioinformatics programming language PERL, PHP graphical user interface a web-based tool and dynamic web service was built for rabbit disease diagnosis. The ?RabDis? is an expert web based model system where we can access the information through identified symptoms, lesions, disease etc for rapid diagnosis of rabbit diseases.
