• My bunny jumped out of my arms yesterday, and she usually gets right back up and is fine, but she fell towards her back and her neck twisted, and she was not moving for about 30 seconds, and then she got up and seemed fine. But today, her head seems tilted to one side and one of her eyes is slightly more closed than the other. She is eating and drinking water normally and eating hay and using the bathroom normally. She’s also hopping around and grooming our other bunny like normal. I can’t tell if she’s in pain, or if this is temporary. She is not loudly chattering her teeth and she also did not make any noise when she fell (I.e. screaming).

    Hi Sarah,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. The head tilt and eye issues are concerning and could be from an underlying injury due to the fall. Even with her acting normal this can potentially be something that worsens. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms and the treatment that she needs after they have examined her.
