THIS IS 100% MY FAULT i am so irresponsible at times, i admit. so i decided to carry my rabbit to the living room, but it was fighting me a bit - this is where i should have put her down. but instead i decided to carry on. i walked a couple more and it leaped out of my arms (a 5 foot drop on a towel) bad right? it gets worse. it leaped INTO my other rabbit's cage (which was why she landed on a towel sort of) and he started chasing her and was being territorial, and she was like running around so i was like PANICKING at this point and i got in his cage but he was trying to bite her - maybe mount her? everything was so fast, but the point is he was right on her tail, she was running so i was unable to catch her, instead she escaped through the bars of his cage. worst part: she got stuck in the back and was there for like 20 seconds not moving cause she was stuck and she was struggling so i sort of squeezed her legs out and she made it and raced back into her cage. i brought her out (OKAY STUPID I KNOW) but onto my bed and she was super scared at this point but i calmed her down.
now she is hopping around and acting normal? and i tried to feel her rib cage for any protruding bones but i found none. so do you think shes okay? just traumatized? she is walking/ hopping as usual.
PS, I WILL NOT carry her anymore until i find a stable way to carry her and only when i Absolutely HAVE to - nail clipping etc.
but does a rabbit make it obvious that it has a broken bone? she is 8 weeks old so she is small but the bars are pretty tiny too! (average size bars) what are the symptoms? she is hopping around as normal, but i want to keep an eye on her. also if i go to the vet and mention this incident will be able to see if my rabbit has a broken bone or not? or does it require an x ray? (i am scheduling an appointment tomorrow)
