My 6 mos. old Holland Lop rabbit, Luke, is suddenly unable to use his hind legs. We were away on vacation for a week, he was fine before we left. Our caregiver said Luke appeared fine all week, but when we arrived home I found him lying with his head down (very odd for him). We let him out to run and I noticed him hobbling. Upon closer inspection, he was unable to use his hind legs. When we pick him up, the legs are crossed. Our vet said it could be spinal injury or infection and gave us Baytril. After a few days on Baytril, there has been zero improvement. Luke is eating and drinking normally and moves around occasionally, still dragging hind legs. We have 10 other rabbits, but Luke is housed in his own cage. He was 1 of 4 surviving kits in his Mom's first litter, thus we've raised him since birth. I cannot afford xrays for him. I've read about the EC parasite/bacteria and wonder if this is what he could have? Spinal injury seems unlikely unless our caregiver is not being truthful and something happened while we were away. I cannot feel any broken or "moving" bones in his vertebrae. He is able to move his back as is evident when I pick him up...he struggles to get down. His heart is beating very rapidly...I wonder if he is in pain? His bottom is messy...likely from urine or messy poo...not sure it is a result of paralysis or the Baytril though. Can anyone tell me how EC usually presents? Does this hind leg "crossing" and paralysis fit the symptoms fairly well? I need to take him back to the vet but cannot afford to mess around with numerous visits to figure out the cause. Should I just ask for the Panacur for EC and see how he does? Thanks.
