I’m offering advice from my OWN experience and I’m not saying she should openly disobey her parents.I find it VERY disturbing that you guys are all telling this young girl (or boy), to disobey her parents. Her mother has experience in the veterinary field, and was able to tell if Duncan was truly hurt (spinal injury, etc.). He is showing improvement, which is a GREAT sign. Do not come at this girl's parents because they can't afford to take Duncan to the vet right now. It will take time for him to rebuild trust, and recover from any bruising, so relax. I have had rabbits get underfoot and they always bounce back with for zest than before.
Do not put a young teen under pressure to disobey her parents.
In my case, my dad thought my bunny would recover on his own. I didn’t think Min-Min would without help like pain medicine because he was trying to eat but couldn’t. Based on all his behavior (my bun was acting completely normal), my dad originally reasoned that my bunny would make a recovery. I disagreed though I could understand my dad’s logic because he was basing it off of his experience with other types of pets.
I ended up showing my brother, mom, and dad similar cases from the Internet on incidents with bunnies where they didn’t appear injured but were. I also let them know what happens with gi stasis. As such, my dad realized the severity of the situation and we drove to an emergency vet and my bun has since made a full recovery.
