Hey /b/ I need animal advice! I found a wild bunny!
He let me pet him and when I picked him up, I noticed his leg was broken. Thats probably why he let me touch him.
Heres my question, am I going to catch a disease for petting him? I brought him home and now he's just hopping around my room as I type this. Should I give him a bath? How do I wash him?
Info, bro. My. Rother rescued a rabbit... had him for 8 years. Sergeant carrots was awesome. Some quick google searches will help... also post pic
Was thinking about it, but I empathize with it because of its broken leg. I wanna befriend it instead of eating it. If it was a normal rabbit and I caught it, I'd let it go sooner or later or ask some family members to help me skin it.
But I want to nurture this rabbit back to health then let it go so it has a chance in the wild :) Hes a cutie pie and is already comfortable with me.
Heres a clear picture of its retard leg.
Type wildlife rescue into Google map's and take him to the nearest one.
That is kinda shocking. It may have broken and then healed badly. It's surprising that it lived.
But yes it's still very serious. Don't worry about it hopping around now but I'd still get it to a vet as soon as possible. Even healed the leg can lose circulation and become necrotic, or re-break and cause an embolism, and it's almost certainly in pain.
Anything I can do to confirm it's in pain and help relieve it?
Also, I have my chihuahua near it, all she does is sniff the bunny and he doesn't seem bothered by my dog. Should I still seperate the bunny and my dog? Or can they stay buddies lol
I found a wild rabbit a year ago and still have it to this day. I green texted oc story and turned out to be an amazing pet.
Very little. Rabbits instinctively hide their suffering so that predators don't know they're lame. The best thing you can do for this rabbit is take it to a small animal vet as soon as possible. They generally aren't expensive.
Rabbits and dogs can learn to get along but I would monitor them and separate them if there are any signs of aggression, especially with the rabbit being lame.
I had a client who had two rabbits and one very friendly and peaceful, elderly glen of imaal terrier. They thought everything was fine until one day they come home and both rabbits are torn to pieces. Do not underestimate the predator instinct.
Though I will say raising it has its difficultys with feeding and survivability
I think Commander Bun Bun deserves a female mate, and if he is indeed in pain, a good ol’ bunny bop might do him some good. It might take his mind off the pain for a moment. Food & water, small animal vet, and a girlfriend.
Post a picture of the bunny faggot
Dis is my bun. Her name is Pancake.
Rabbits are actually shitty pets. Even the tame ones piss and shit everywhere, and chew the shit out of everything they can clamp their teeth on. The males will hump anything vaguely bunny-sized constantly, which is funny for a day or two, but becomes fairly disgusting after your foot has been bunny fucked 10 or 15 times in an afternoon.
Rabbits are raised as a cheap source of meat. If you're not going to eat it or let it go, it will end up in an outdoor cage and forgotten about.
Tame rats are far more interesting and intelligent.
Negative ghostrider, pancake is sleeping and so is my gf. Im not going to wake them up to take a shitty picture in the middle of the night. Sorry fam. Have more pictures of our buns. This is Cadburry snuggling with my gf while she does studd for class
Honestly the chances of a good recovery from a broken leg are pretty slim, chanes are it will never heal quite straight and he'll always have a (somewhat) croocked leg. This is just FYI. It's not in any way a problem if you don't plan to release him after his leg has recovered. I'm just passing along information from personal experience with a baby hare with a broken leg.
