    Do encourage your vet to prescribe metacam - it is well tolerated by rabbits and when it removes or reduces pain it makes a great difference to the quality of their lives. Our Frank has severe arthritis in his knees which was diagnosed by x-ray and is on a maximum dose of metacam. When that eventually wasn't sufficient our vet added tramadol and Frank is whizzing about the house again.
    I do think it is important you find out why this is happening for which you will need to find a rabbit experienced vet by the sounds of it.

    I do feel rather inexperienced with rabbit health and so appreciate the advice I am getting.
    This is a really helpful forum - wish I had discovered it earlier!
    Iím so glad you are finding the forum helpful I donít have experience of arthritis in rabbits so I canít advise, but Iím sending lots of vibes finding a rabbit savvy vet is well worth it in my opinion
