I've already scheduled a vet appointment for tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, I work 2 jobs so I couldn't take him today.
I noticed last night that one of my bunnies, James, was hopping strangely. His spine looks off, and his back legs are definitely not aligned, so his back end sweeps sideways when he hops. He's not dragging his legs, but he's not moving as much as usual and he was very clumsy, almost knocking over the hay box last night.
As far as I know, nothing of note has happened to him outside the cage. I've been so busy the last few weeks that I haven't even been home enough to let the buns out for exercise, so they've unfortunately been cooped up in their cage for quite a while. I know it's terrible of me, but I've been working long hours at 2 part time jobs.
The workload will be lightening and settling soon, though, as I'll be back to one job next week.
Has this happened to anyone else's bunnies? I'd just like to get an idea of what could be wrong, and what kind of treatment James might need. I've never been to this vet before, but my old vet is 2 hours away in another city, because I moved about a year ago. Is it possible that he somehow injured himself in the cage? Both buns have been in the same cage for over a year now.
