Hello. I'm new here so I don't know if this is the right place to post this.
My bunny is almost 4 years old. She has a problem with her front paws. She can't stand on both of them at the same time, and when she rests they are spread in a way a seal's front limbs are. She can move her paws and hop around - with a bit of trouble, but still she can. She just can't put them together, like she would while cleaning her face. And sometimes she looses ballance and can't stand up again.
She's got good apetite and cleans herself regularly. She's quite active and doesn't avoid the contact with me, lets me pet her, sometimes even falls asleep while I do that. When I sit on the floor beside her, she hops around me and touches me with her nose, showing interest. Generally, she doesn't give any signs that she's in pain or something. And she's showing interest to the other bunny I have as well. She's acting just the same way she did when she was alright, except for the problems with moving around.
I make sure that she's always clean. I make a sort of soft diapers for her - she sits on them and when she wets them, she leaves the place immediately, so she never gets soaked. I also make sure that she can eat at any time she wants and also give her water and hay.
I've been to many vets and none of them could help. I don't know what exactly is wrong with her and what more I can do for her, so if you know, please give me some advice.
Thank you very, very much for all your replies, vets lists, links and your support! It makes me feel wonderful that there are so many kind bunny owners who really care
As for your questions:
1. Yes, she can support her weight on her legs, she's actually using only one to keep her ballance. She does not slither or crouch, she almost normally hops.
2. She is 4 years old and the legs started to look like this about a year ago. First it was only her right leg that was twisted a bit - the left one was ok. Now both are spread like this, but it is the right on this time that she is able to stand on.
3. Both of her front legs are strong enough for her to stand on them, but she somehow is not able to deal with it 'mechanically' - there is no chance that both of her legs could be in the position allowing her to stand on both on them at the sime time.
OK, here are some photos of her I took today - I hope that it would make some things clear:
This is her, hopping - the leg visible here is the one she's got problems with.
My princess again - the same leg again.
This time the leg that seems to be quite ok.
Standing, well, more or less, on the troublesome leg - I'm not pinching her nor pulling her by the fur here ^^
Finally, cleaning herself. The lighter leg is quite ok, the darker - the troublesome one.
