reply to injured rabbit

hi friend ,,
i dont face such a problem..but i have full sympathy for you and your i share something with you..

A radiograph *might* show additional damage that could cause this problem (pinched nerve? healed break?), but it really depends on what the problem is. If it's a soft tissue injury, this might not show up on a radiograph, and a neurological problem certainly won't.

It wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion, though, in case the reason she's holding her foot up is just simple pain. In some cases like this, if the injury isn't too old, acupuncture can help restore function and ease pain. Your vet may be able to refer you to a licensed veterinary acupuncturist (all licensed vet acupuncturists are also veterinarians) to see if this might help your little gal.

Good luck, and thank you for your kindness!
