Paralyzed Rabbit Gets a Wheelchair

The vet told Melanie James that she should just have Bertha put to sleep. But James had other ideas. She modified a dog's wheelchair to fit her bunny, who has been struggling to get around after a hip injury. James tells the Daily Telegraph that Bertha is putting the chair to good use:

"She sits in it maybe for a couple of hours and then she has a rest."

The device hooks onto the bunny’s back and allows her to roam freely around her home at the Ani-Mel charity in Bank Mill, Cumbria.

Her devoted owner also gives Bertha daily baths, physiotherapy, antibiotic injections and plenty of movement to aid her recovery, with the hope that soon Bertha may be able to walk again soon.
