Bad leg

Species: rabbit | Category: medical-surgical | Submitted: 2 June 2009 09:39AM | viewed 9602 times
Q Magdalena asks about Chester (rabbit - not known, M) :

I noticed yesterday that my rabbit doesn't move his leg. He hasn't been out of his cage for about 3 days, so no chance to break it. I'm a bit worried because he stopped eating last night and hardly moves. What could it be? Do I need to go to the vet?

Q Our vet says: It sounds as though your rabbit should see a vet, he sounds quite poorly. Rabbits can injure themselves fairly easily and there is always the possibility that a fox or cat has hurt him if he is kept outside. Since rabbits can become very ill quite quickly I would get him to a vet as soon as possible.
