Spinal fracture or luxation-rabbits that are allowed to frantically kick, whether confined in a cage or while being restrained, or rabbits that are dropped can fracture or dislocate their lumbar vertebrae. the result is hind limb paresis or paralysis that only rarely responds to emergency medical therapy. when handled or restrained, rabbits need to have their hind end fully supported. this can be accomplished with a football hold, whereby the rabbits head is tucked into the handlers arm with one hand, and the other hand supports its hind end. if rabbits are kept at the clinic and become too excited in a cage, then they will need to be moved to a small carrier to prevent excessive movement.
