Heidi The Rabbit Goes Swimming In A Lifejacket To Help With Her Arthritis

Vet-recommended hydrotherapy is "working incredibly well" for Heidi's hip and knee arthritis and has also proven to be therapeutic for humans who look at these photos.

Before Heidi can get into the water, she has to get her little bunny-sized lifejacket on.

As you can see, she also wears a scrunchie around her ears to keep them from getting wet.

She swims for seven minutes at a time, twice a week.
