How To Pick Up A Rabbit. 2 Lift the rabbit carefully to your side or in front of your mid abdomen under your arm. Rabbits have a delicate spine and require gentle handling.
As before have a treat in one hand and stroke along your rabbits back until your hand is in the right position to lift and gently take a little of your rabbits weight. Dont hold the rabbit too long or treat it roughly. Start with the rabbit on a surface and then place a towel over the rabbits back so that the towel comes up to his neck.
Do not point its head down because the rabbit may then try to jump down out of your arms and may hurt itself.
Therefore it may induce a breakage or fracture or cut of fundamental soft tissue and muscle. Your right hand should be curled up around your rabbit holding them close to your chest. Done properly your rabbit will feel safe and secure the whole time. Think of it as a football hold.
