  • Acrobat gene in Netherland Dwarf rabbit This is a 9.5 month old red Netherland Dwarf own and bred by Ted McBride. His hypermetric hind limb gait suggests he may have the "acrobat" gene described in literature. On physical exam the rabbit was completely normal with no spinal abnormalities and a slightly exagerrated patellar reflex bilaterally. Cataracts have been associated with this gene which were not observed here. Ted notes that the condition has improved with time as the rabbits ages and learns to live with this gait abnormality.
