Urgent - My rabbit was too curious and may have injured himself.
I have two pet rabbits that I keep in a large size, solid bottom dog crate. (I can almost fit inside of it myself) The spaces between the bars are just right, and at a young age they cannot get out. BUT, there is one gap closest to the door that is bigger than the rest, and my most curious baby found it.
This morning I found him outside the cage completely. His head fits through the hole, but his legs get stuck and he has to pop them out. It looks dangerous on his part, so I covered the holes.
Now, I am noticing he has a limp on one of his legs and doesn't put any weight on it. He still scoots around, (no hopping/jumping) and eats/drinks/uses the bathroom frequently. I picked him up and examined his legs by stretching them out and pushing them back in. He doesn't seem to mind, so I am confused.
What should I do?
