Injured Bunny

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I live in Canada and today I found an injured bunny on the side of the road. It is currently the middle of the night and it is a holiday so no vet hospitals are open. The bunny might have a broken leg but it is evident that he/she cannot walk. I am either going to take the rabbit to a shelter in the morning or I am going to take it to a hospital and keep it myself. What I want to know is how expensive are vet bills for this kind of thing. Thank you

The vet bills will depend on the diagnosis.  My guess would be in the neighborhood of $200.

 

According to this website (http://homepage.mac.com/mattocks/morfz/firstaid.html) you can give the bunny half of a 81mg tablet of aspirin.  May help take some of the edge off until you get to a vet.

is it a pet or wild bunny? I would call local animal control and see what they recommend.
