Hello everyone,

I have a baby rabbit that I found lying on its side with no good motor control. It has its head curled back and it's back arched back like it's trying to touch its nose to its tail. It can still move its limbs but not very controllably. Is there a cause to this and any way to fix it or prevent it for other baby rabbits?

The bunny is likely dying if it hasn't already passed at this point. How old is this baby and is it a part of a litter that you have, or just an individual rabbit that you have as a pet? If it's still alive, best thing would be to go to the vet immediately, though there may not be anything they can do besides put the bunny down. The head arching back like that can sometimes indicate serious brain issues.
