I am really worried about my 13 month old boy Bink. Sunday morning, he was found limp at the bottom of his cage. He was breathing and every since we have been hand feeding him and watering him. He is peeing and pooping but he seems so tired. He moves his head but the rest of him is not moving. We adopted him 1 year ago yesterday and he brings so much joy to us. I am so sad as I have no idea why he is not moving

I'm so sorry your Bink is feeling so poorly, I have no advice to give, but there will be more experienced people along soon. Please let us know how it's going.

You really need to get him to a vet immediately. Do you have a good rabbit vet you can take him too. I would not delay this.

I'm with Sarita, it's best to get him to the Vet ASAP, this sounds very serious.
Wishing your little bun a speedy recovery.

Yes, please get him to a rabbit vet as soon as possible. There may be something wrong neurologically or he may have injured himself somehow.

I know it's now a day later, but were you able to get him to the vet? If you didn't have one yet, the rabbit vets are listed under Exotics in the yellow pages. You can always take him to a general vet who does dogs and cats, just for an initial care of the emergency. They can handle anything basic for bunnies and possibly refer you to a good rabbit vet.

How is he this morning?

Mr Binx is showing signs of improvement. His eyes are bright and he is holding is head up and moving around using his front paws. The vet is going to see him in the morning there weren't any other vets available. He was being fed by hand but today I set some food and hay out a few inches in front of him while getting ready to swaddle and feed him but he went to get food by himself! We went from no movement and shallow breathing extremely lethargic to lifting his head and moving his front paws. His breathing is much better. He is still peeing and pooping. Actually as I type this he just stretched out his back legs! So he is stable and when the vet sees him hoping for a full recovery.

What a scarey thing to go thru.
