My female rabbit isn't being herself she's just laying

Customer Question
there, her ears are warm...
My female rabbit isn't being herself she's just laying there, her ears are warm but no lumps!
Recently she's been play fighting with her sister, but she just isn't moving I have turned my heating off recently too. I'm so worried she's only a baby I have only had her since Christmas and she hasn't her jabs yet could this be the reason?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she been down?

Can she move her back legs at all?

Any changes to her breathing?

Any wounds or sores anywhere from fighting?

Does she take the food/water you have given?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
