Hi everyone! I'm looking for someone to give me some advice on caring for blind bunnies! I recently got a very sweet continental giant girl and after some vet visits it turns out that she is blind (my partner and I suspected this anyway as there was pretty obvious signs from the start) she is only 4 months old and was born this way, we want to be able to give her the best quality life that we can so if anyone has tips and advice to help with that it would be much appreciated! Changes we have already made include:
-Scheduled feeding and cleaning times
-a little ramp up to the bed
-a friendly companion in our other rabbit

Main thing is to NOT move things around in her area. Our avatar, Nikki, was blind, but we kept everything in the room in the same place, always. She was comfortable enough that she'd run around the room like our other bunnies. It was easier to catch her as she'd run right into my hand when it was time to go back to her hutch even though she was trying to avoid that!

Yes, keep her environment consistent. And if she is easily startled by things, make sure to make a bit of noise when you approach so you don't startle her. There's also some info about caring for a blind rabbit in this link.
