Picking Up Your Pet Rabbit

Your rabbit seems pretty sturdy but he has a fragile and lightweight skeleton so he can squeeze into tight areas. Thus your rabbit could be injured or killed if handled improperly or dropped. Before trying to pick up your rabbit, make sure he is comfortable with you and trusts you. Sit by him and speak or sing softly. Drape your hand in the enclosure for your rabbit to explore and try hand feeding him. When you are ready to pick up your rabbit, act quickly and efficiently. Place one hand under your rabbit’s chest just behind his front legs. When lifting your rabbit, use your other hand and forearm to support the rear end. Keep control of your rabbit’s hind legs at all times since he could scratch you severely if he kicks out. This action could also injure or even break his back.
