    I'm not an expert on rabbit care, so I can't really answer your question, but your rabbit needs to go to the vet. Since you mentioned that you can't afford it, you could contact a rabbit care organization or rescue that could help. Rabbits get very ill very quickly, and I really think Pip Squeak needs to go to the vet.

    Sounds like your rabbit has some type of ear infection, rabbits have a short life span and are easily injured or diseased. The longest we ever had one make it was 9yrs. most avg only 3, I would guess that if you don't take it to the vet soon it'll die.

      Wow, 9 years is good! The lifespan is 8-10 years for pet rabbits.

    Yes, he should go to the vet, and maybe there is a low cost one or you can pay payments. It does seem like maybe he has a neurological problem or an inner ear problem. An inner ear problem would cause balance problems, while the rest of his body is fine. However he does need to go to the vet.

    You need to take him to the vet. Obviously something is up. If you can't afford a vet, then you shouldn't have gotten him in the first place.
