Rabbit having splayed legs due fracture, now healed. How to rectify?

hi, my rabbit is 2 yrs old and as a baby she fractured both hind legs and had them pinned. They healed well but as a result of her disability (or so we thought) she now has 4 splayed legs. We also wondered if she may have spinal problems. we have been to the vet many times, and he doesnt have a definative diagnosis. we have tried panacure. she eats and drinks well, and produces normal pellets. thanks, Claire

Thanks for writing to us.
The deformity that your pet is having can be corrected surgically by an expert vet. Do consult one. A spinbal deformity needs to be ruled out after X-ray.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
