Floating rabbit: bathing as therapy


A swimming rabbit? That sounds more than unusual. But with the cute bunny named Heidi, bathing has a deeper meaning: the movements in the water are used for therapy. The poor animal suffers from joint inflammation.

Ar-th-rose is a very painful and therefore unpleasant illness. Inflammation of the joints can occur not only in humans, but also in animals. The cute rabbit Heidi suffers from such a disease, the knees and hips are affected. The rabbit goes swimming as a therapeutic measure so that these areas still get movement that is not too painful.

The animals are of course not real record swimmers, which is why Heidi is protected with a special life jacket. And the rabbit even gets a small bathing cap over his funny ears. So-called hydrotherapy is also used in humans - animals and humans are not that different.
