A bun we took in last year recently passed and I picked up one this am from someone giving it away. He is a Dutch and super sweet and friendly and 1yrs old. He appears to have splayed front legs. I asked her about them, and she said he was always like that and has trouble walking on wood flooring. I was hoping that it was because his nails were long or that there was hay on the bottom of his cage, but after taking him home and letting him roam and cutting his nails I def think there is an issue. Only a vet can tell for sure I guess....but I was looking for ideas on cage modification for him? Our other bun was in an XL dog cage with different carpeted levels but I think he is going to need a 1 level cage. But wondering if indoor/outdoor carpeting on the bottom would be ok or maybe rubber shower mat type flooring? His back legs seem ok at this point to my untrained eye! I was also going to cut down the litter box in the front so he can get in/out easier. He isnt litter box trained so have to work on that too!
Any ideas will be appreciated......I am also scouring the archived messages for info!
