• How long should I wait until I palpate my pregnant rabbit?

    The gestation length for rabbits is 30-32 days. The time when a fetus can be felt can vary depending on multiple factors. These include the size of the rabbit, how tense she is during palpation, and the skill of the person palpating.

    I recommend that you contact the veterinarian that will be performing the palpation and ask them what they recommend. They can give you the best recommendation on timing the palpation.
