Rabbit Urine

Rabbit urine is usually yellow, but can be different colours from a condition called red urine which can be from plant pigment. This can be in healthy bunnies as well as ill.To find out more about rabbit urine, read the information below.


Some causes of different coloured rabbit urine is from:

1) plant pigment- A diet with large amounts of plants, high in beta-carotene (which is things like carrots and spinach) can cause this. Also your bunny eating pine or fur needles can change the colour of their wee. This will only last 2-3 days.

2) A kidney or bladder infection

3) kidney or bladder stone

4) kidney or bladder cancer

5) bladder polyps


The main symptom is the different coloured rabbit urine. If it is from plant pigment, the colours are red, pink, brown, or orange. If it looks like there is blood in your rabbits urine, then there is probably something wrong in their kidney or bladder.

There is antibiotics for your bunny but if there is blood in their wee, it is advisable to visit the vets as soon as possible.
