Putting Bunnies in a Trance
Putting bunnies in a trance can be very useful when you need to trim toenails, give medicines or calm a panicky bunny. To trance a bunny, you need to flip them over on their back and pet their cheeks and nose area at the same time, and they should start to go out.
The easiest way to get a bunny on its back is if you pick it up with your right hand under the front legs and your left hand on the butt and then you kind of stick the bunny into the crook of your elbow as if you are cradling a baby. Once there, you use your right hand and start petting the bunnies face and you should start to see them relax and the head start to fall backwards and then they are in a trance. My daughter Marissa is the queen of trancing bunnies and has been able to trance every bunny she has ever tried and doesn't even need to get them in that position I had just described. She certainly has her way with the bunnies!
To wake a bunny from a trance, you just need to move them or flip them back over and they will wake back up immediately.
