There is gold/yellow on bottom of my rabbit's feet (back not front). I'm sure it is from his pee from sitting on litter. I knew that my rabbit will clean his feet to remove yellow off his feet. He did that ever since I adopt him.

But.. He didn't or unable to clean his feet to remove yellow off his feet since I think a month ago. I saw Romeo the rabbit cleaning his bottom feet but yellow fur are still there. It is suppose to be white (He is English Spot/drawf breed).

I picked him up and put him in the bathtub. I let little room tempetaure water flow so he can hop around with water on his feet. He went crazy because of water. He tried to hop on me but it was too hard for him to do that. Then I decided to stop because he didn't like it. I picked him and grabbed the towel to whip his feet off. I still see yellow on botto of his feet.

Any idea to remove the yellow stain off his feet?

 

Thank you for taking your time to read this and answering if you can.

I wish I knew!!!

Noot pees on the floor (anywhere he pleases-he's terrible even peeing while running around!!) and Chuck stepped in some a few weeks ago-his little footsies are yellow!

I bathed his feet too, and I know they are clean (as you washed your bunnies feet they are likely clean too) but they are still stained. I honestly don't think anything but time will get them white-time to regrow hair and the stain to fade.

Bunny fur stains so easily!

Before I became a bunny mummy, a friend of mine had a white rabbit that just would not drink water, so to encourage him to drink, she put a little bit of rabbit friendly carrot juice into his water (FYI: I wouldn't recommend this, you'll see why in a second!)

The silly little rabbit loved the sweet juice, and drank plenty, then sat beneath the drip of the water bottle and the carrot juice wet his head. He had a bright orange crop of fur on the top of his head for months! We tried for a long time to remove it, but in the end, he managed it himself during his daily lick-clean. I kept thinking, if this is what it does to the fur, what on earth is it doing to his insides?? Suffice it to say, she didn't use the carrot juice again. After a bit of research, she found out that rabbis didn't drink as much water as she had thought! Silly bunny mumy!

This will take forever to wait for hair to regrow.

I wish there is another way to do remove the stain

OMG! I would love to see orange stain on bunny's head

Careful, don't give carrot/carrot juice to any bunnies because carrots contain too much sugar.

You cannot remove the yellow foot stains. Bathing will not help in this situation. Over the course of maybe 3-6 months (and a couple shed cycles), the yellowed fur will shed out and be replaced with white fur.

My lop was allowed to play outside at the rescue he came from, when we adopted him his feet were BROWN from digging in mud. We gave him a foot bath to get the dirt and pebbles out of his fur and between his toes (there was a lot) and then they were just stained brown. I'm proud to report that after several months, his feet became pristine white, and they've been flawless ever since ;o)

Oh geeez orange bunny stain.... Id love to see a photo of that!! Bunny fur seems to stain very easily. My boys had an accident in their carrier on the way to the vet a few weeks ago and thus had peeped on feet when we got there. Now they both have slightly yellow paws. I actually think its kinda cute!! Haha. Good to know that it will go away eventually. I have a small plastic carrier (made for a small dog or cat) that I use when transporting the bunnies.... when you guys are using one of these do you usually add a towel or blanket to the bottom to help your buns from slipping? Also for some reason they have perfect litter habbits but once they are in there they BOTH usually pee within the first 2 minutes. I now add them 5 min before I have to go, wait 2 min, take off the top, clean the peep, then put the top back on and we go. Its been cleaned with vinegar many times so it shouldnt smell like pee anymore. Any ideas on why they are doing this....... sorry i know my questions are kinda off topic

I have to agree, you just have to wait for it to grow out!

Most bunnies hate the water, so it ends up being very traumatic for them for something that probably doesn't bother them at all. =)

But I would make sure that the problem of getting urine on the feet is solved.  Urine can irritate the hocks, and if they frequently get their feet in urine, they can get something called urine scald.  Make sure you change the litter daily or every other day.  Also, make sure there is something there to absorb the urine so it stays away from bunny.  (Carefresh is a good option here!)

I just read this too!  They're probably just peeing because they are nervous.  I always put a towel at the bottom of their carriers, which gives them more traction and makes them feel more secure too!

I wish I can bleach my bunny's feet but it is harmful anyway

I traveled 5hrs with my bunny. He was in cat carrier. I cannot put towel or else under him because he will chew it. He was okay in 5 hours trip. I think that's how my bunny's feet turned to yellow from peeing in carrier -_-. Thanks for refreshing my mind.

 

*talking to myself* hmm 1 month.. yikes.. 2 to 5 months for me to wait until his feet will clean

I use Yesterday News Litter for Romeo's litter.

I do not use any bedding for my rabbit. He don't pee or poop in cage except in litter box.

 

I used to use carefresh for him but he chew it and try to eat it. I freaked out!

Wood shaving wont work either. He ate wood shaving!

So, few months ago, I decided not to get bedding for Romeo anymore. I wash his cage every week instead once a month.
