I'm Meesh.

I like making good grades/ smoking cigarettes (unfortunately)/a few people/ and getting a good night's sleep. I used to be cool.

What Kind of Supportive Care do Rabbits with Missing Limbs Need? Tri-pawed and other missing-limbs rabbits will have some special care needs beyond those of a rabbit with all four legs.

Slippery flooring is a big problem for a missing-limb rabbit. They will need an enclosure with flooring that provides plenty of traction to help prevent them slipping and sliding. Cotton towels, rugs or fleece are great options.
A rabbit who is missing a back limb will need help with ear cleaning. See our page on Ear Care for more information.
They may have trouble balancing when grooming, eating or performing other tasks. Consider lining their pen with some rolled towels tied with jute twine or sisal rope (to prevent unraveling) or adding a stuffed animal for them to lean against when they need help.
Keep a careful eye on the remaining feet and, if applicable, the stump of the removed leg. A rabbit with a missing limb/s will be especially prone to sore hocks because the remaining limbs have to do the job of what is normally four legs. See our Sore Hocks page for more information on preventing and treating sore hocks.
It is important to keep a missing-limb rabbit at a healthy weight. Excess weight is not good for any rabbit but can be especially harmful for a missing-limb rabbit as they have fewer limbs to support that weight. 
Rabbits with a missing hind limb may have trouble using a traditional litter box. Consider a more convenient, low entry litter box like the ones we mention on our Litter Boxes page.
A rabbit missing both hind limbs will require a very special setup and help keeping clean. Visit our Bedding and Baths & Cleaning pages for more information on those topics.

PrognosisRabbits adapt remarkably well to life with three legs (and can even adapt to life with two, if cared for properly). We know lots of little bunnies who get around just fine with a missing leg- they run, hop, play, binky, get into trouble, just the same as any normal bun. Rabbits who lose a hind limb to amputation do take a bit longer to regain their footing than buns who lose a front limb (just because of a rabbit’s natural reliance on their back legs), but they do learn to adjust to their new way of hopping. Though there are still some owners and professionals who advocate euthanasia for a simple broken leg, there are tri-pawed rabbits all over the world who are still living quality lives and we urge people, should they face amputation, to give their bunny a chance- they will surprise you with their ability to overcome life with three legs.
