vgr1 note: The 'Handling your Rabbit' guide has pictures of rabbits that might be in a tonic immobility (TI) state, trancing. This may upset some people. TI should only be used as a last resort by someone that is trained and knowledgeable on TI. Lead author McBride, E.A., BSc, PhD, FRSA, of The University of Southampton published a paper on TI, included: "It may be appropriate for veterinary surgeons, and owners to continue to use this method for minor procedures, such as nail clipping as it holds less risk than anaesthesia." - reference@wabbitwiki
