Giant rabbit - morris

Morris is a privilege to work on; even more so having now seen the extent of his osteoarthritis via his X-rays.

Morris is a giant rabbit with severely arthritic knees - as a prey animal, I wasn't really expecting him to tolerate treatment on any level, however, Morris is a privilege to work on, and even more so having now seen his X-rays. I have never seen bone in such a degenerated condition and Morris is under strict orders to keep his weight down in order to minimize the load on his skeletal system.

Whilst Morris is highly unlikely to accept treatment in the same way as a dog might, he has started to relax more during treatment and feedback from his owner so far is that he is far more mobile, is able to sit up on his back legs and wash his ears - something previously unheard-of, and has taken to standing up on his back legs to steal food - result!
