    You need to take the bunny to the vet. I don't know if his eye will be OK or not but you are running the risk of the bunny getting a serious eye infection if not treated. The bunny could lose his sght out of the eye but right now I would be more concerned about a major infection.

    The eye is still in place not bleeding that bad and he can still see out of it...will he die or be ok..

    Are you serious? TAKE IT TO A VET.

    And supervise the kid. Who was watching him when this happened? *shakes head*

    You pick up a rabbit by one hand under its chest, and the other supporting/cradling its bottom. To begin with best its facing away from you. So its legs have nothing to push against. If its facing you, its legs will push against your chest and it will jump off, hurting itself as it lands.
    You need to buy a good book about rabbits as they are more difficult to look after than cats. There are a lot of things that poison a rabbit. Do not feed lettuce, but a dark green cabbage is ok.

    Regarding the answer above:I have had my rabbit nearly 3 years and have fed him lettuce everyday. I also feed him carrots, broccoli, cabbage, apples, rabbit pellets and other veggies.
  • deme marical - 2011-05-12
    No. You never pick it up that way. You have to grab it by the scruff which is behind the ears and it helps to have it face you. Hold its bottom to support it (they can break their back very easily). They can't eat any thing with seed like: cantolope tomatoes ect. Trust me I have been in 4h for 7 years.
  • steffi - 2011-06-27
    Actually you can in fact pick them up like that. I even read it on this rabbit website. Whenever I try picking mine up with my hands under her belly, she squirms. Whenever I scoop her up and have my hand on her bottom, she's a lot calmer

  • Charlie Roche - 2011-05-16
    I had 8 and I have seen them lay down pretty much anyway except for laying on their backs with their legs up in the air like dogs sometimes do. I never saw that. But stretched out, on their side, scrunched up, hind legs striaght out etc. Just anyway

I am very very sad. My rabbit is at the HOSPITAL! His bone looks like it's sticking out of his body, and I am only 10! The rabbit, is 4 years old about. Every time he gets up, his body twists, he walks side-ways, and falls down. He was fine earlier, but not now. I think his spine snapped.

    Poor you!
  • Editor's Note - 2010-11-06
    Hi Reeses, I am sorry to hear about your rabbit. It is really sad to have a pet with problems like that. You did the right thing to take him so a vet that can find out what is wrong and give him the help he needs. I hope everything turns out okay.
  • Reeses Cup (Reeses.) - 2010-11-11
    He died. It's really sad.
  • ryan - 2010-11-30

  • Doug - 2010-12-08

  • bella - 2011-01-26
    Hi. I'm nine. I would like to purchase a rabbit. I'm talking my mum and dad into it though. I'm sorry to hear your rabbit is in the hospital. I hope he gets better soon! Make sure you visit him every day if you can. Maybe even bring him a picture to brighten up his hospital room. Good luck!

  • bella - 2011-02-26
    Oh my gosh! I can't believe he died! Poor thing! Poor you! Reeses, I'm very sorry about your loss! =( =( =(

    Try to see the happy side.
  • Hev - 2011-05-01
    My rabbit died too.
    I was five when I got her and when I was ten she died. It was a disease, what made it worse is that the cure was found a month later.
    I know how you feel but you have to think about how long he/she lived and the happy times, it sounds like ultimate rubbish but it works. Also try painting or something to get your mind off it.
  • SAD - 2011-04-24
    That is soo sad that he died.
  • deme marical - 2011-05-12
    I am in 4h and rabbits and if that happens then it needs to be euthnized because its spine is broken and it is in a lot of pain probabley.

I have a 18 month old mini lop bunny. Her coloring is broken white with brown ears, eyes, and a "beauty spot" on her left cheek. When I first got her she was about 4-5 months old. She was very skittish and I could tell she was nervous (her previous owners left her outside in a hutch all alone) Little by little she'd let me scratch behind her ears and pet her and we started to bond. Now she hops into bed with me and my girlfriend, is litter trained and follows me everywhere. She loves to give eskimo kisses. When I put my shoes on and get ready to leave, she gets upset. She stands in front of the door when I go to leave. She is the best pet I've ever had.... Her name is Bun Bun

    I actually just got a male and female and I agree bucky (male) is ten times calmer then cocoa. Bucky is my personal favorite and wouldnt trade him for anything
  • Anonymous - 2011-02-11
    Yeah, I've done a little research and found that with most breeds, males are calmer except when they are young.
