Rabbit Uterus Cancer

Rabbit uterus cancer is also known as uterine adenocarcinoma. This is the most common form in which rabbits get cancer. It occurs in above 60% of bunnies over the age of 3.

This usually forms after a bunny has already developed some other reproductive issue in them. This could be endometriosis.


The symptoms can vary between the bunnies.

  • Blood in their urine
  • Vaginal discharge stained with blood
  • Cysts in the mammary glands
  • Cloudy fluid which may come from the mammary glands
  • Behavioural changes
  • Lethargy
  • Inability to eat
  • Pale mucus membranes
  • Abdominal masses
  • Mammary glands 

If your bunny is still capable or reproducing (hasn't been spayed) then they are at risk. 


This could involve a hysterectomy to remove the whole of your bunnies uterus. This is what they would consider to do first if it hasn't spread beyond their reproductive organs. They may preform a biopsy to see how much it has spread.
