what to do

What do I do about urinary problems in my rabbit?


Answer by  worker29 (69)

Most urinary problems in rabbits result from excess calcium buildup known as bladder sludge (hypercalcinuria). Make sure that your rabbit is drinking enough fresh and clean water. Inactivity can encourage calcium crystals to form and bond with each other. Some rabbits will hold their urine longer if they're confined to a small area and their toilet area is not clean.

Generally rabbits are very clean animals and will pee at regular intervals. The problem of urinating frequently may be due to the absence of litter boxes or medical problems. Calcium carbonate will accumulate and form stones in the bladder and may cause Infections. In activity of rabits, kidney disease, or bladder disease may also a cause for frequent urination

Contact your Vet if you suspect infection, sludge, or stones. Rabbits lose excess calcium through their bladder. Make sure any supplements don't include calcium, and that they have plenty of water to drink. Place several small containers of water in the home for ample opportunities to drink.

Urinary problems in rabbits are often caused by being fed food contaminated with pesticides. The first thing you should do is take the rabbit to the vet for a proper diagnosis. After following the vet's recommendations, you may want to buy only organic foods for the rabbit to eat.
