View Full Version : Help needed

04-05-05, 03:37 pm
Please can somebody advise me about a health problem that my rabbit has (or maybe not). When cleaning his cage today I noticed what I thought was blood in his sleeping quaters, on closer inspection I saw that it was not blood but it was very orange wee. He is alright in himself and is still eating and drinking as normal and still the little monkey that he has always been.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank in advance

Have you been giving him lots of carrots lately?

Thank you for your quick answer Moxie, would it be worth cutting out carrots altogether for a while and see what happens, but if he is poorly I don't want to leave it to long.

It is normal for rabbits to have the occasional red or orange urine. I've noticed it with my own rabbits as well as several rabbits at the shelter. If your rabbit ever has bloody urine, however, he should see a vet right away.

Here are two links about red urine in rabbits
