Hydrotherapy For Giant House Rabbit

A giant pet rabbit from Dorset who suffers from arthritis has been having successful hydrotherapy treatment in the New Forest.

Four-year-old Heidi from Christchurch is a continental giant rabbit - she has arthritis in her knees and hips, as well as neck problems.

Her owner Amanda William has been taking her for sessions in a heated hydrotherapy pool run by Linda Prove in Milford-On-Sea. They both say the treatment's working incredibly well and Heidi is now much more lively.

She wears a special lifejacket and is fully dried off afterwards. Watch a cute video below!
