How do I know my rabbit has arthritis?
by Alex De Cort on Apr 11, 2021
The main symptoms of arthritis in RABBITS are:
Preference to stay put: When moving hurts, your rabbit will prefer to sit still. Makes sense right?
Stiffness: In particular after lying down.
Wet belly: Arthritis can make your rabbit incapable of taking on it’s usual position when peeing..
Eating less: Arthritis may cause your rabbit to stop eating as much as he used to.
Aggression: Don’t take it personal, your rabbit is just in pain.
What can I do when my rabbit has arthritis?
Unfortunately there is no cure for arthritis. What you can do as a rabbit owner is: watch your rabbit’s diet (avoid ovewreight), keep your rabbit warm, and keep your rabbit clean. To ease the pain, you can also consider giving your rabbit CBD.
